WHAT IS FIDO AUTHENTICATION?
FIDO (Fast ID Online) is a set of specifications developed for strong and convenient authentication. It is developed by the FIDO Alliance, a non-profit organization that seeks to standardize authentication and eliminate the use of passwords across websites and apps.
There are three sets of specifications for authentication: FIDO Universal Second Factor (FIDO U2F), FIDO Universal Authentication Framework (FIDO UAF), and the Client to Authenticator Protocols (CTAP). Together, they are known as FIDO2 standard.
All FIDO protocols are based on public key cryptography and are strongly resistant to phishing (for more information, see How FIDO Works). For example, Hideez FIDO Key comes in the form of a small Bluetooth keychain. User unlocks it using a button and a securely-entered PIN instead of remembering a whole bunch of complex passwords.
The FIDO Alliance has more than 250 members, including global tech leaders across enterprise, payments, telecom, government and healthcare. FIDO standards are supported by major browsers and operating systems, such as Windows 10 and Android platforms, Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Microsoft Edge and Apple Safari browsers. The number of FIDO-enabled Platforms and browsers is constantly growing.
