FIDO Developer Challenge: Welcoming Teams to the Implementation Stage

By Joon Hyuk Lee, APAC Market Development Director

Editor’s Note: This is the second blog covering the FIDO Developer Challenge.  To learn more about the background and process, please read the earlier blog post, Announcing the FIDO Developer Challenge for Developers Across the Globe.

We are happy to announce that 14 teams from eight different countries (the U.S., Japan, Canada, France, India, Malaysia, Vietnam, and South Korea) have been invited to participate in the implementation stage of the 2021 FIDO Developer Challenge. Six of the teams are early-stage ventures and an equal number hail from academia; the other two are individual developers.

All of the teams share a commitment to using FIDO authentication to provide a smoother and more secure user experience across a variety of application areas. As was the case in our earlier Hackathons, we are seeing yet again that the mix of entrepreneurial vision coupled with the capabilities of FIDO Authentication can be realized in a wide array of use cases and industries. We will share more details on each of the submissions as the review process carries forward.

The teams are now engaged in designated virtual lounges for possible Q&As and support from the Developer Challenge sponsors and broader FIDO development community.  To that end, we would like to recognize and give special thanks to the W3C WebAuthn Adoption Community Group for managing the private Discord Channel to provide technical support for participating teams.

Implementations will be done by the end of August and the judges will evaluate the teams’ final presentations and demos by early September.  Please stay tuned for our announcement of the Top 3 by the middle of September – with the winner being announced at the Authenticate conference in Seattle on October 20.
