Webinar – Introduction to FIDO’s Identity Verification & Binding Initiative
September 18, 2019 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
FIDO Authentication has grown from concept to global web standard supported in leading browsers and platforms in just seven years. While FIDO has become a cornerstone of web security, account enrollment and account recovery processes are leaving gaps in the credential management lifecycle that allow bad actors to perform account takeover and get into our networks. For accounts protected from phishing and other credential-based attacks with FIDO Authentication, the account recovery process when a FIDO device is lost or stolen becomes critical to maintaining the integrity of the user’s account.
To address these gaps, the FIDO Alliance recently announced a new Identity Verification work area to provide authoritative guidance, performance evaluation and certifications for the use of possession-based identity verification technologies techniques. Attend this webinar to:
- Understand gaps in digital identity management resulting from account enrollment & recovery methods commonly used today
- Look at new remote, possession-based techniques including biometric “selfie” matching and government-issued identity document authentication and how they can improve the quality of identity assurance for new account onboarding and account recovery.
- Learn why the FIDO Alliance is focusing on identity verification and the goals of the Identity Verification and Binding Working Group (IDWG)
