Alpha Serve upgrades Jira with WebAuthn, FIDO2 biometrics for passwordless authentication

 

Fingerprint-Identification

Alpha Serve now supports web authentication protocol (WebAuthn) for Jira on the Atlassian Marketplace, bringing FIDO2 security keys and biometric passwordless authentication for users to have a seamless and frictionless login experience, the company announced.

WebAuthn for Jira is built on the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) web standard Web Authentication API (WebAuthn).

The passwordless authentication system makes it easier for users to access websites and apps without relying on passwords, but by instead using a physical security key or a mobile device connected to a PC or their biometric information. By adding WebAuthn, Alpha Serve lets users authenticate themselves through biometric fingerprint recognition and FIDO2 security keys.

“Our plugin will be the pioneer solution to utilize WebAuthn during login into Jira,” says an Alpha Serve representative in a prepared statement. “This unique product introduces passwordless authentication technology to Jira, a much more robust and convenient security alternative to passwords.”

The plugin was added to Alpha Server’s existing Atlassian community offerings for Jira, Bitbucket, Confluence, and Crowd.

Passwordless authentication (WebAuthn) prevents phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks, rainbow table and credential stuffing, and optimizes account management and user experience.
