The FIDO Developer Challenge 2022 – India has come to a successful close with the award ceremony held on January 20th, 2023, at the Samsung R&D Institute in Noida. The challenge aimed to educate and support local adoption of FIDO technology.
First place was awarded to MonitorExam for their innovative FIDO-based online exam proctoring system. AyanWorks, with their FIDO-based SSI wallet, and AllSafe, a team of students with a FIDO-based SSO service, were also recognized as the other two top finalists. For the full details of ideas presented by the top three finalists, please view the recorded sessions:
The Indian government agencies, including Data Security Council India (DSCI), our local liaison partner, and the Controller of Certifying Authorities (CCA), which officially endorses FIDO as the 2nd factor authentication, are dedicated to promoting robust and user-friendly cybersecurity measures. We are confident that the India-focused FIDO Developer Challenge has made a positive impact by empowering local developers to rapidly deploy FIDO-based services, which provide enhanced protection against phishing-related cyber-attacks while maintaining ease of use for all online users.
