Farewell to the smart card?

ID authentication specialist Yubico is making a bid to replace federal employees' smart cards with its little USB keystick, known as a YubiKey. "Several agencies are gearing up large-scale procurements," said Yubico Vice President of Solutions Engineering Jerrod Chong. "They are very excited." Chong spoke to FedScoop this week from a Yubico all-hands retreat in Sweden. He said the company was putting its latest product, the YubiKey 4, through laboratory certification for Federal Information Processing Standard 140-2 — the approval that marks cryptographic products as secure.
