We know you have been waiting a long time for the production launch of our YubiKey NEO, and we are very happy to announce our plan to start shipping the production versions of the YubiKey NEO by December 10th. We are already accepting orders for the YubiKey NEO, so place your order today to get your full production sample of the NFC authentication token as soon as possible! And if you happen to be at CARTES in Paris this week, stop by the NXP booth where we will demonstrate the NEO.
The previous limitations of the beta version of the NEO have been addressed in the production version. The final version of the YubiKey NEO also includes a new secure element, enabling smart card/PKI functionality, which is certified for Common Criteria and the highest level of security. You can read more about all the new features here, as well as more about RFID and the YubiKey NEO.
We will naturally continue to expand and improve the YubiKey technology, so stay tuned for even more updates in the future!
