FIDO Alliance launches FIDO Korea Working Group

Categories Biometrics News  |  Trade Notes

The FIDO Alliance has launched the FIDO Korea Working Group to further accelerate awareness and adoption of the FIDO Authentication standards in the Korean marketplace.

Korea is a leading adopter of FIDO Authentication and is the country with the most companies receiving FIDO certification for products and solutions based on these standards. The working group will engage locally with governments and enterprises to leverage this momentum and ensure that FIDO standards continue to be widely accepted and adopted across industries.

Executives from Samsung and BC Card will chair the FIDO Korea Working Group with executives from CrucialTec and Raonsecure serving as co-chairs. Korean membership in the FIDO Alliance is expected to grow substantially as the FIDO Forum Korea is merged into the FIDO Korea Working Group next year.

“FIDO Authentication has had a fast start in Korea, and it is imperative that we continue that growth by engaging at the local level to ensure our standards address the evolving authentication needs of this innovative market,” explains Brett McDowell, executive director of the FIDO Alliance. “This new regional working group will better enable the Alliance to engage the newly-elected government that is particularly proactive on cybersecurity regulation and policy. The mission here is to promote certified solutions, improve awareness, and collect regional requirements so all organizations have the opportunity to realize the benefits of FIDO Authentication.”

Just last month, the FIDO Alliance launched a FIDO Europe Working Group to accelerate the use of FIDO authentication standards in Europe.
