The YubiKey FIPS series uses the YubiKey 4 Cryptographic Module that received FIPS 140-2 validated at Overall Level 2, Physical Security Level 3 with certificate number 3204. At this level, the YubiKey FIPS series meets Authenticator Assurance Level 3 (AAL3) as defined in NIST SP800-63B, that enables compliance with Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) and Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) requirements.
FIPS certification is essential for many branches of the US government and contractors, in addition to those in the private sector that collect and transmit sensitive but unclassified (SBU) information.
The YubiKey FIPS Series hardware authentication devices include keychain and nano form-factors for USB-A and USB-C interfaces. The YubiKey FIPS Series is the only FIPS validated multi-protocol security key in the market supporting five authentication protocols; FIDO U2F, smart card (PIV), Yubico OTP, OpenPGP, and OATH-HOTP/TOTP. Now, federal entities and federal-compliant enterprises can comply with the high assurance security requirements for on-premise or cloud deployments using the YubiKey FIPS Series.
