Strong Online Authentication
A major driving factor behind the biometrics boom has been the death of the conventional password. With the growing number of online accounts managed by the average user, proper password practices have become an unbearable burden, and therefore highly insecure. Biometrics and mobility offer respite from the futile effort of proper password upkeep, especially now that said technologies are becoming increasingly accessible.
Industry organizations, like the FIDO Alliance and the Natural Security Alliance, are endeavoring to bring universal strong online authentication standards and specifications to the Internet so that we can all finally do away with passwords and embrace the convenience and security of our own biometric factors.
