Developer Workshop

May 20, 2019 @ 9:00 am 5:30 pm

The FIDO Alliance invites you to learn about key trends in strong authentication and to get hands-on with FIDO2 implementation, including the Web Authentication (WebAuthn) API from W3C and the corresponding Client to Authenticator Protocol (CTAP). This workshop is targeted at developers and product engineers who are eager to move their sites to strong customer authentication. FIDO2 is built upon standards-based public key cryptography that leverages devices that consumers use every day to provide a simpler yet stronger authentication experience.

Attendees will first be given an overview of FIDO’s technical and market vision, then guided through strategic considerations for deploying modern authentication, and finally led through the process of replacing a traditional password-based log-in with a FIDO login in three use cases:

  1. Using the WebAuthn API for web-based authentication (both desktop and mobile)
  2. Writing to FIDO2 APIs in Android for native and native web applications
  3. Leveraging FIDO2 functionality in Windows 10 and Windows login

A full list of hardware, software, and configuration requirements will be sent to attendees upon registration – but it is suggested that attendees already have a working knowledge of leading web frameworks (for the WebAuthn tutorial) as well as interest/expertise in Android and Windows for those parts of the workshop.

FIDO’s open specifications improve web account security, enhance user experience and lower enterprise support costs. Today there are nearly 600 solutions in the market that have been FIDO® Certified and numerous services have been FIDO-enabled by leading service providers, including GoogleFacebook, Microsoft, PayPalSamsungBank of AmericaUK Digital ServicesNTT DOCOMO, and many more.

FIDO offers a simple, low-cost way to improve security and the online experience. Come attend our workshop to learn more about how to bring these benefits to your business and customers.

There is no charge for the seminar, but space is limited and registration is required.
