We hope to USB-C you at CES!

January 5, 2017 2 minute read

Each year the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) ushers in the new year by revealing the latest in tech, and we’re excited to take part. This year, our CEO is speaking on a security panel, and we’re showing off our new YubiKey 4C with a USB-C design!

Yes, Apple fans! We heard your lament over absent HDMI and USB 3.0 ports, and your transition to USB-C on the newest MacBook Pro.

YubiKey trio

The YubiKey 4C, the world’s first multi-protocol USB-C authentication device, will be previewed at ShowStoppers @ CES, 6-10 PM, at the Wynn Las Vegas. You have asked, and we have listened to your requests for a USB-C form factor. We are extremely proud of the upcoming YubiKey 4C, which will be available for purchase in the Yubico store for US$50 beginning February 13, 2017.

And kicking off the day on January 5, 2017, at the CES Cybersecurity Forum 2017, our CEO and Founder Stina Ehrensvard is speaking in a panel discussion, “Battening Down the Hatches: Data and Devices.” The panel will dive into the tools needed to keep connected devices safe and secure, highlighting endpoint protection, secure browsers, and apps protection. The panel begins at 9:15 AM in Room Lando 4301 on Level 4 of The Venetian Las Vegas.

Built on the proven foundation of the YubiKey 4, the YubiKey 4C also supports multiple protocols including Yubico OTP, OATH, FIDO Universal 2nd Factor (U2F), up to RSA 4096 for the OpenPGP function, as well as up to RSA 2048 and up to ECC P384 for the PIV smart card function. This lineup of functionality is contained in a new keychain design for laptops, such as the MacBook Pro, which rely solely on USB-C ports.

We are working on an additional smaller YubiKey form factor with a USB-C design akin to the YubiKey 4 Nano, but do not yet have a time frame for availability.
