Amadou Diallo, Forbes

The FIDO Alliance, a security-minded industry consortium that includes tech giants such as Google GOOG +1.47%, Netflix NFLX +0.81%, and PayPal has released a public draft of new security standards that could someday make user passwords a thing of the past. Co-founded a year ago by former PayPal executive Michael Barrett, the FIDO Alliance is drawing the support of major tech companies on the lookout for a login alternative that offers greater security, while easing the burden consumers face in creating and managing dozens of passwords for the sites they visit.
