A FIDO2-certified device is a roaming authenticator that people carry around in addition to their computers and smart devices. The hardware authenticator replaces passwords and takes various shapes like a USB token or a key. Based on public-key cryptography, FIDO2 is an open authentication standard that enables strong and passwordless authentication with web and cloud services.
With FIDO2 authenticators that enables safe and simple login to cloud services, people don’t have to setup and memorize complex passwords for different services.
FIDO2 is an open standard for authentication hosted by FIDO Alliance, an industry consortium focusing on developing authentication standards to help reduce the world’s over-reliance on passwords. FIDO2 consists of W3C Web Authentication specification (WebAuthn API), and the Client to Authentication Protocol (CTAP). CTAP specifies the interoperation between biometric devices and web browsers – where users can securely login to online services. In lieu of passwords, FIDO2 standard takes advantage of FIDO2 certified hardware devices to ensure secure and effortless authentication.
FIDO2 authentication greatly reduces the risk of phishing, keylogger, and man-in-the-middle attacks.
FIDO2 authenticator is easy to use, eliminating the need to memorize and manage complex passwords for all sorts of online services.
Password-related IT management costs are reduced since there is no need to reset passwords, no need to update passwords periodically.
