Yubikey Bio is Yubico's first security key with a built-in fingerprint reader. It incorporates a fingerprint scanner into its security key, so users won’t need to type in a password or PIN if they insert it into a computer. They'll just scan their fingerprint to unlock access. The company says the new Yubikey can support “fingerprint recognition for secure passwordless and second factor logins.” The fingerprint data itself is saved in a separate “secure element” on the key, kept away from the central systems, according to Yubico. In addition, the fingerprint data never leaves the device. Designed to work with applications that support the FIDO 2.0, WebAuthn, and U2F standards. It doesn’t need a battery or any software drivers for the fingerprint sensor to operate on a PC. Available for the USB Type A, and USB Type-C ports.
