)-- The first beta series based on the most commonly used RFID standard MIFARE Classic has been manufactured and is successfully verified by customers. The YubiKey RFID looks exactly like an ordinary Yubikey 2.0 and offers a reading distance of about 3 centimeters. During the first quarter 2010, the RFID YubiKey will be available for order in any volume and will eventually support MIFARE Plus and other more secure RFID standards.
The RFID Yubikey is ideal for organizations who want a single identification key for the range of applications:
Networks and services
One touch secure login, works on all computers and platforms with no clients software needed. Server software available as open source or from Yubico solution partners.
Physical access control
