Special Holiday Offer

It’s time for Yubico’s Special Holiday Offer! The v2.3 firmware has just been released and the Yubico team, with help from Rob, our hard working robot, have put together a Holiday Pack to give you a chance to try it out.

Here’s what you get with a purchase of the Holiday Pack: two black YubiKey Standards and a very special Gold Edition of the YubiKey Nano. Fancy! And yes, all YubiKeys in the Holiday Pack comes with v2.3 firmware. You’ll save 35% on the Holiday Pack as compared to buying them separately, not forgetting the special edition of the Nano that’s currently only available with the Holiday Pack.

Click here to order online, but remember that we have limited stocks.

Enjoy the holiday season trying out the new features!

Changes to YubiKey VIP
Yubico Team

Changes to the YubiKey VIP

We’ve made some changes to the YubiKey VIP! Previously, the YubiKey VIP came with a Symantec VIP credential used with services that support the Symantec VIP second factor authentication. If you wanted to use the YubiKey with a YubiCloud service (such as LastPass) you would need to add a YubiCloud credential to the YubiKey VIP.

With the release of the v2.3 firmware for the YubiKey, we have decided to add a “dormant” YubiCloud config to the second slot. You can use the cross platform personalization tool to activate it – indeed, you can also swap the configs so your YubiCloud credential is in slot 1 and your VIP is in slot 2!

To help prevent making mistakes, we have password protected both YubiKey configuration slots. You will need to enter the configuration Access Code to make changes (such as swapping, or making the configuration active or dormant). Just enter the serial number of the YubiKey VIP in as the Access code – as it appears lasered on the YubiKey. As with other versions of the YubiKey, you can change the configuration passwords – but be aware there is no way to reset the password should it be lost or forgotten!
