Daon receives FIDO2 certification for biometric online account access

Daon has achieved certification for FIDO2’s server protocol, as well as for the UAF 1.1 server protocol and Android client SDK from the FIDO Alliance. The certification enables users to authenticate themselves for account access with Daon biometrics and without passwords in both desktop and mobile environments.

Any compatible device running Android 7.0 or higher in FIDO2 certified out of the box, following the mobile operating system’s certification in February.

“As a board-level member of the FIDO Alliance, Daon is particularly proud to announce our FIDO2 certification,” comments Daon CEO Tom Grissen. “We view the rapid embrace of this standard as a reaffirmation of our commitment to delivering the very best in safety, simplicity, privacy, and choice to our global customers and their users.”

Daon’s FIDO UAF 1.1 certification for authentication both on server and Android client SDK provides streamlined support for current key attestation capabilities and biometrics to eliminate the time and cost of custom integrations, according to the announcement.

“With its latest FIDO certifications, Daon is showing versatility in its offering and ability to meet requirements for a wide variety of its customers looking to move beyond passwords with simpler, stronger FIDO Authentication,” says FIDO Alliance Executive Director Brett McDowell. “We look forward to our board member Daon’s continued leadership and strong commitment to helping the rapid deployment of FIDO Authentication in the global marketplace.”

Daon is among the first biometrics providers to receive FIDO2 certification according to the announcement. Nok Nok Labs’ S3 Authentication Server was certified to FIDO’s UAF, U2F, and FIDO2 protocols last year.
