When it comes to on-device authentication, there is probably no greater institutional expert than the FIDO Alliance. The cross-industry consortium blazed a trail for post-password authentication, and has literally set a new standard with FIDO2, whose CTAP and WebAuthn specifications clear the way for sophisticated security mechanisms like fingerprint authentication directly through a web browser, among others. Only just announced at the RSA Conference, FIDO2 has already kickstarted a flurry of activity as various organizations seek to launch the compliant hardware and software that will lay the foundation of the next stage in user authentication.
That’s why FindBiometrics is so pleased to have FIDO as the premier partner in the next installment in our renowned webinar series. Scheduled for Wednesday, May 30th, at 11:00 a.m., the “Preparing for a Post-Password Internet” webinar will begin with an update from FIDO Alliance Executive Director Brett McDowell, and will feature a panel discussion including experts from industry leaders Aware, Inc., Daon, and Nok Nok Labs. And the discussion will be moderated, as always, by FindBiometrics President Peter O’Neill.
With cloud-based services on the rise and password-based authentication on the ropes, it’s more important than ever to understand and appreciate on-device approaches. Registration for this expert webinar is completely free, and only takes a minute, so be sure to sign up and get this in your calendar today.
