The state of FIDO
FIDO2 open standards, developed by the FIDO Alliance in partnership with the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), allow the consumer electronics industry to build support for easy-to-use, phishing-resistant FIDO authentication directly into their products and platforms. Including the passwordless and second-factor use cases from first generation standards FIDO U2F and FIDO UAF, FIDO2 provides the end-to-end interoperability between devices and online services needed to finally put us past passwords for good. In this session, Andrew Shikiar will provide an overview of the FIDO2 vision for authentication and where adoption is to date, including: browser and platform support; supporting products and certification programs; and deployment by online services. In addition, Shikiar will give a sneak peek into new initiatives to bring the standards development and certification expertise of the FIDO Alliance to new work areas.
