Aimed at CISOs, security strategists, enterprise architects, and product and business leaders, this is the fourth consecutive year that the FIDO Alliance is hosting the public conference. The annual event is specifically designed to share education, tools, and best practices for modern authentication across web, enterprise, and government applications. 

“Passkeys are the hottest topic in digital identity and authentication as the world accelerates its efforts to put passwords in the rear-view mirror,” said Andrew Shikiar, executive director and CMO of FIDO Alliance. “Authenticate has rapidly established itself as a must-attend event for those interested in learning about how to apply passkeys and other cutting-edge authentication solutions to their business. Between the dozens of sessions and countless networking opportunities, Authenticate attendees will come away from this year’s conference with actionable insights to help accelerate their companies’ transition to a password-free future.”

Last year’s conference sold out for in-person attendance, welcoming over 950 total attendees in Seattle and remotely. The event featured more than 100 sessions with highly engaging content, plus a sold-out exhibit area with 30 industry-leading exhibitors and sponsors.

Authenticate 2023 will build upon this strong foundation and feature detailed case studies, technical tutorials, expert panels, and hands-on lab sessions aimed at helping educate attendees on business drivers, technical considerations, and overall best practices for deploying modern authentication systems. The full 2023 agenda will be published later this month. Attendees benefit again from a dynamic expo hall and engaging networking opportunities.
