Nok Nok Labs Gets FIDO2 Certification, Launches Developer ProgramThe latest version of Nok Nok Labs‘ flagship authentication platform has received FIDO2 certification, making it the first FIDO universal server certified for all of the FIDO Alliance’s protocols.

A FIDO Alliance co-founder, Nok Nok Labs was one of the first companies to commit to supporting the FIDO2 standard when it was launched earlier this year. Like the rest of the FIDO Alliance’s protocols, FIDO2 is aimed at ensuring strong digital authentication, and takes the notable step of bringing biometric- and security key-based authentication to web applications.

In addition to procuring FIDO2 certification for its S3 Authentication Suite platform, Nok Nok Labs has also announced a new S3 Authentication SDK aimed at empowering developers to design custom server infrastructure, along with a “Nok Nok Labs Developer Program” to encourage the use of multi-factor authentication systems that can replace password-based security.

In a statement, FIDO Alliance Executive Director Brett McDowell credited Nok Nok Labs as “a valued contributor to the creation of all FIDO specifications including FIDO2,” adding that in becoming the first universal server certified for all FIDO protocols, the Nok Nok Labs Authentication Server can demonstrably “address a wide variety of use cases and provide a range of authenticator options to service providers looking to combat phishing and other scalable attacks with simpler and stronger FIDO Authentication.”
