Fighting Fraud With Strong Authentication
Nov 25, 2019

Strong authentication is one cornerstone of web security. However, account enrollment and account recovery processes are leaving gaps in the credential management lifecycle that allow bad actors to perform account takeover and get into our networks. Increasingly, these bad actors aren’t even real. Stolen identity information that is used to create new fake IDs, known as synthetic identity fraud, is a fast-growing form of fraud.

FIDO2: The Train is Leaving the Station
May 11, 2023

The FIDO Alliance is working to change the nature of authentication with open standards that are more secure than passwords, simpler for consumers to use, and easier for service providers to deploy and manage. While initially focused on the consumer space FIDO2 holds advantages for the enterprise willing to break the mould on legacy authentication models.

This session will look at the components of a FIDO2 environment and investigate the options for FIDO deployments. A view of the possible future of FIDO will be discussed.

FIDO for Developers - How Developers Can Master FIDO and Passwordless Authentication Without Adding Unnecessary Complexity.
Sep 14, 2021

The paradox of simplicity is that making things simpler is hard work. - Bill Jensen

 Building strong passwordless authentication from scratch can be very time-consuming. Integrating the necessary infrastructure into a typical password-centric identity code base increases code complexity exponentially. Taking into consideration that well-known user flows have to be changed and enhanced with new authentication options may also pose significant challenges for developers. They have to get it right - and make it as simple as possible for the end user.

 In this talk, we highlight possible pitfalls and necessary considerations when implementing passwordless FIDO and WebAuthn protocols. You will recognize how a cloud-native approach can simplify the integration of passwordless authentication and smoothen the requirements for developers and product owners of any online service. You’ll also learn how to gradually migrate existing users to the new authentication methods in a frictionless manner.

Join us to explore three possible abstraction layers we’ve identified to take the complexity away when dealing with FIDO and passwordless multi-factor authentication. Ranging from utilizing a managed FIDO API and SDKs up to a fully-fledged passwordless-native identity provider that can be integrated with OpenID Connect. We also will share some secrets on useful extensions of the FIDO standards we’ve identified when building our passwordless user experiences.

Passwordless update - News from FIDO
Nov 25, 2021

Inconvenient and weak digital identity affects our digital economy.  Adding more band-aids to the legacy knowledge-based digital identity infrastructure isn’t effective anymore.  

The FIDO Alliance introduced standards for possession backed authentication which are now supported by all major platforms.  Additionally,  the Alliance is developing new standards for document based ID verification and passwordless device onboarding.

With standardized approaches supported by the ecosystem, we have all ingredients for a wholesale upgrade to the “fabric of identity” in our hands.  It is on us to use them.
