We've got the question a couple of times - given that the new Yubikey 2.0 is completely monolithic - is it waterproof ?


The answer is yes ! There is however "grades" what really waterproof means. Preliminary tests indicate that we'll at least meet Ingress Protection class IP67, probably even IP68. Salt water is a slightly different game as it can cause corrosion. If the Yubikey is rinsed in water and dried, it should however be fine.

We are to test it according to appropriate environmental standards, not only water resistance.

With the best regards,
Hardware- and firmware guy @ Yubico
