Functional Certification Overview

The FIDO Functional Certification program allows members and non-members to measure compliance and ensure interoperability among products and services that support FIDO specifications. Companies completing certification may display the FIDO® Certified logo to demonstrate to consumers, customers and partners that they have created a high‐quality, interoperable FIDO implementation that is known to work with other FIDO implementations.

The latest version of the Functional Certification Program Policy documentation is available on the Getting Started page, and the review of this document is the recommended starting point.


Steps to FIDO Certification

  1. Conformance Self‐Validation, where test tools are used to validate that the implementation conforms to the FIDO specifications.
  2. Interoperability Testing, where testing is performed at a proctored event or On Demand to ensure that implementations are functional and compatible with other implementations.
  3. Certification Submission, where all the required documentation is submitted as a request for certification.
  4. Trademark Usage (optional). After executing the Trademark License Agreement, implementers may use the FIDO® Certified mark and logo on their product, packaging, and marketing literature.
