Please note that they may take up to 10 business days to process.

Derivative Certification

For Consumer Electronics OEMs or other implementers that will be certifying a large number of implementations that are all based on the same FIDO Certified implementation, FIDO offers derivative certification. The benefit of derivative certification is that the implementations are not required to go through the self-conformance validation testing or the interoperability testing and each derivative certification is subject to a lower fee than base certifications.

The requirement for derivative certification is that each derivative must have the same FIDO implementation and configuration as a certified implementation. Any hardware and software that play a significant role in the FIDO implementation must not be changed, with the exception of critical bug fixes and security patches. There is currently no requirement that the derivative and base certification be registered by the same company.

When registering for a derivative certification, the base certification certificate number must be submitted along with Derivative Test Plan Results. The Derivative Test Plan Results are intended to show that the FIDO implementation has gone through at least a minimal amount of testing to ensure that the implementation is correct and functional.

The following are required as part of the Derivative FIDO Certification submission:
