FIDO at RSA 2018: Spotlight on the FIDO Ecosystem, Plus Live Debut of FIDO2

Andrew Shikiar, Senior Director of Marketing, FIDO Alliance

FIDO’s presence at RSAC 2018 is off to a strong start, coming on the heels of last week’s announcement of the FIDO2 Project, including W3C’s Web Authentication specification hitting candidate release. Attendees have had many questions about FIDO2 and in general are excited by the prospect of leading browsers supporting FIDO Authentication in order to reduce the industry’s reliance on passwords.

The FIDO ecosystem has been quite busy at RSAC — highlighted by a Passport for Strong Authentication that is encouraging attendees to visit one or more of 15 booths showcasing FIDO(R) Certified solutions. In addition, many members have issued announcements about their FIDO solutions, including:

As always, there’s also been plenty of off-hours socializing — including the annual Non-Profits on the Loose reception, co-sponsored by FIDO, the Anti-Phishing Working Group, the Cyber Threat Alliance, the Internet Society, the National Cybersecurity Alliance and the Online Trust Alliance.

FIDO’s presence at RSAC will be capped off on Friday with a debut presentation of FIDO2 capabilities, featuring a joint presentation by Google’s Sam Srinivas (also FIDO’s president) and Microsoft’s Dave Bossio (FIDO’s vice president) – moderated by FIDO’s executive director Brett McDowell. The panel will give a first-hand look at new authentication options based on FIDO2 and W3C standards in their browsers, and is being held April 20th at 10:15am in Moscone South Esplanade 151.

Not able to attend the presentation? Fear not, as we’ll also be hosting a FIDO2 webinar on May 16 – registration details will be posted soon!
