Acceptto behavioral biometrics certified for FIDO2 server protocol

Acceptto has announced that its behavioral biometric technology has been certified by the FIDO Alliance for the FIDO2 server protocol as part of its effort to address traditional binary authentication problems and solve the problem of password insecurity.

The company says it is the first to offer a patented behavioral biometrics platform for authentication and continuous monitoring and access management, and the first to integrate the FIDO2 Client SDK and API for integration with iOS. Acceptto supports both FIDO UAF 1.0 servers and FIDO 2.0 servers, and easily integrates with iOS apps, according to the announcement.

“Easily hacked, passwords can no longer remain the standard for authentication moving forward. With FIDO2 we can start the path to a safer, more phishing-resistant protocol and better user experience for web and mobile application authentication,” said Shahrokh Shahidzadeh, CEO, Acceptto. “We are proud to be leading the transformative shift in cybersecurity by offering an end-to-end continuous behavioral authentication platform versus outdated binary authentication technologies that are simply ineffective. Only then can we leverage immutable identity characteristics – truly unique to each individual in its context – effectively rendering passwords completely obsolete.”

FIDO2 combines FIDO’s Client-to-Authenticator Protocol (CTAP) with the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C) WebAuthn specification, which is the official standard for passwordless online logins for major browsers and operating systems. Google recently rolled out limited FIDO2 biometric authentication on Android devices, but adoption of FIDO2 and WebAuthn has not been as rapid as some might have hoped.
