Session Abstract: FIDO2 enables users to leverage common devices to easily authenticate to online services in both mobile and desktop environments. The FIDO2 standard introduced cryptographic tokens into the authentication process, giving Web services and apps users a passwordless login experience via biometrics, mobile devices, and/or FIDO security keys. While FIDO2 provides secure authentication, it does not support verification of user attributes. Furthermore, the FIDO2 protocol does not define how an authentication event could be combined with verified and trusted attributes, nor how users could share them using consented and selective disclosure. Applications that require user attribute verification (e.g. date of birth, driver's license expiration dates, etc.) still rely on ad-hoc approaches that may not satisfy the data minimization principle or do not allow the user to vet the disclosed data. In this session, we will present an industry-ready solution that combines eID, zero-knowledge proofs ,and FIDO2 to enable a privacy-preserving way to share user attributes.
