Uniken, Inc. has joined the FIDO Alliance.
It’s the company behind REL-ID, a digital security platform. It’s aimed at the enterprise sector, and Uniken says REL-ID revolves around the combination of “strong, ‘relative’ identities with Uniken’s patented protocol,” enabling the provision of “secure, continuously authenticated application channels” scalable for the Internet of Things.
As such, it could be a good fit for FIDO, whose authentication standards are widely respected and continue to gain momentum in popularity. Lately, the standards have even been seeing support from companies that aren’t FIDO members or stakeholders.
In a statement announcing Uniken’s membership, FIDO Executive Director Brett McDowell explained that FIDO’s “vision of universal strong authentication promises better security, enhanced privacy, more commerce and expansion of services throughout digital industries,” adding that “Uniken’s addition to our Alliance supports our industry goal to make user authentication easier and safer for all parties.”
