I had been recently researching on hardware keys with the different types and price for which they are offered.
I already own one yubico security key which just works fine for me, though i wished i could purchase the yubikey 5 series with some advanced functions but it costs around $70 (incl intl shipping + customs taxes) for me.
I searched for cheaper option and found the Fetian key ePass FIDO® -NFC is available and offers the same capabilities (refer website) as the Yubikey 5 nfc series but costs only about $40 ( incl shipping + taxes)
I have made this assessment purely on cost basis and features they promise.
so i need your views on this product regrading other parameters like authenticity , reliability and reputation of these keys.
i don’t believe feitain keys are open source as well but i have only seen a bunch of yt videos where people seem to using it fine.
Thanks in advance
Thanks for that info . I already bought the security series key by yubico.
But i want the 5c series which has otp and static password support but unfortunately it costs too much for me as indicated earlier.
Therefore i asked about this feitian key which is significantly cheaper.
Though i am too not very optimistic about the bluetooth variant of the key.
But being cheaper also means its accessible to a lot more people and thus more people use better standards of security.
I am also open to buying nitro keys (mainly
coz its upgradable and open source) but i hardly have seen any feedback from anyone using it plus its availability issue.
Not sure why you would want OTP in the key? I never really used that.
I have a nitrokey as well but not sure if it even supports that, I do not use it for this. I am the person that invested in Yubikey’s with fingerprints just because. Also have you seen my post about cloudflare’ offer? (Cloudflare and Yubico offer yubikeys for $10)
