Envisioning Authentication Beyond FIDO
The outlines of FIDO were first discussed at Cloud Identity Summit in Vail. Six years on, it is a firmly established standard with over a billion users using it every day through major brands they interact with. FIDO was conceived as a building block for strong identity & authentication practices and there are applications that range from consumer to enterprise to IoT in wide deployment. How do we think about strong authentication & user identity and experience in a world where hardware-based strong user authentication is ubiquitous? How should one augment FIDO based authentication and what are the key additional building blocks required for a successful deployment at scale? What user journeys are easy and which are hard within the current authentication landscape? This talk from one of the inventors of FIDO will provide a birds eye view of the authentication landscape, its projected evolution and best practices to achieve authentication nirvana.
