Episode Tease

Single sign-on devices are pretty popular, with a cloud-based storage and a flash drive, both with password management included. What these devices require, however, is USB. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to do it on non-USB devices?

That is where YubiKey Neo comes in. This device, while supporting USB, also supports NFC. This could allow the possibility for a single sign-on between desktop computers, smartphones and tablets. The key is compatible with several types of password managers, including LastPass and PasswordSafe, meaning you don't have to recreate your existing password list.

You can get the original, non-NFC device now for $25 and the new NFC version for $50, though there is a back order on it.
