FIDO2 is the umbrella term for a passwordless authentication open standard developed by the Fast Identity Online (FIDO) Alliance, an industry consortium comprised of technology firms and other service providers. FIDO 2 consists of two core components. The first is the WebAuthn API, which industry leaders are incorporating into their browsers, including Chrome, Edge, Mozilla, and WebKit. Second, there’s the Client to Authenticator (CTAP) protocol that provides FIDO 2-capable devices an interface for external authenticators via NFC, USB, or Bluetooth.
The HYPR Authentication Platform provides businesses and developers a wide array of authentication capabilities, including the FIDO 2 Web Authentication Framework. The FIDO 2 authentication standard consists of the W3C Web Authentication specification, WebAuthn API, and the Client to Authenticator Protocol (CTAP). HYPR is a working group member of the FIDO Alliance and has deployed FIDO-Certified authentication to millions of users across some of the world’s largest enterprises. HYPR provides FIDO2 out of the box to enable true passwordless security across mobile, web and IoT applications.
