FIDO Alliance certifies 62 authentication products in latest testing round

Categories Biometrics News  |  Trade Notes

The FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) Alliance announced there are 62 FIDO Certified products after the second round of FIDO Alliance testing of products for compliance to the FIDO 1.0 specifications.

The newly certified FIDO 1.0 products include FIDO authenticators and servers from Egis, Feitian, GoTrust, MicroStrategy, Sensory, SK Planet, and Synaptics.

Both FIDO Alliance members and non-members developing implementations of the FIDO 1.0 specifications are able to undergo FIDO Certification testing.

Based on industry-standard best practices, the certification testing objectively evaluates technical implementations of the FIDO 1.0 specifications, which are Universal Authentication Framework (UAF) and Universal 2nd Factor (U2F).

“We are very pleased to see the diverse range of new FIDO Certified products from the most recent round of compliance testing. FIDO 1.0 specifications are designed to be flexible and future-proof, accommodating a variety of modalities and transport bindings,” said Brett McDowell, FIDO Alliance executive director. “The innovative products coming through our FIDO certification program come in a variety of forms to accommodate the many diverse organizations ready to deploy simpler, stronger FIDO authentication.”

New implementations accompany the new FIDO products that are available now, including SK Planet’s newly certified FIDO products in Syrup Pay, a one-click payment service designed for PC and smartphone users in Korea.

FIDO products and services enable companies, organizations and individuals to improve security by adding FIDO U2F second-factor devices and/or completely eliminating passwords through FIDO UAF biometric solutions such as fingerprint or iris recognition sensors.

The next FIDO Certified interoperability testing events will be held on September 22 for FIDO UAF and on October 5 for FIDO U2F, with subsequent testing sessions occurring about every 90 days or as demand dictates.

Previously reported, the FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) Alliance announced that ING in Europe and USAA in the U.S have joined its board of directors.
