Pre-Conference Events

The FIDO Alliance Update Seminar will provide an understanding of where the FIDO Alliance stands in its effort to address online authentication problems — problems best exemplified by the weakness of passwords! Recent announcements by companies including Google and Microsoft have demonstrated that the FIDO Standards are becoming the way to address authentication.

At the Seminar we will explain the UAF 1.0 and U2F 1.0 FIDO Standards which were released in December. You will learn how they work and what they can do for you. We will also discuss how companies are approaching the deployment of FIDO-based authentication solutions. Questions answered will include:

  • What will I have to do to deploy FIDO in my business?
  • What will the effort be?
  • How do I get started?

There will be demonstrations of FIDO Ready™ products. Come talk with the people who built them.

This seminar is designed to answer your questions about the FIDO Alliance. Come join us!
