December 20, 2013 - 

The FIDO Alliance has announced its new FIDO Ready Certification Program.

According to the group, members will be demonstrating tested and certified FIDO Ready authentication products at the International Consumers Electronics Show, taking place January 2014 in Las Vegas.

“In less than a year, FIDO Alliance specifications have enabled several of our members to produce some remarkable innovative authentication products. Participants at CES will benefit from hands-on experience of how open FIDO standards will work to enable truly novel strong authentication technologies. With FIDO specifications, users have a choice of devices and solutions that interoperate and make authentication easier to use, more secure and private,” FIDO Alliance president, Michael Barrett said. “We congratulate our members on their timely work in delivering innovative authentication products to the marketplace and on display at CES.”

Alliance members participating with FIDO Ready products and services at CES include AGNITiO, GoTrust, FingerQ, CrucialTec, Infineon, EyeLock, Fingerprint Cards, Nok Nok Labs, Synaptics and Yubico.

The FIDO Alliance says that these products are all based on a working draft of the FIDO specifications, available to all member organizations.

Reported previously, the FIDO Alliance has seen many new members in the last year. This week, Discover Financial Services joined the Alliance and last week, Microsoft announced its membership

FIDO also recently surpassed the 50-member mark in its first eight months as an official organization.
