FIDO: Pushing International Buy-In

One key factor in efforts to reduce reliance on passwords for authentication will be international acceptance of the FIDO Alliance’s soon-to-be released protocol for advanced authentication, says Michael Barrett, the alliance’s president.

FIDO, which stands for Fast IDentity Online, is a global non-profit organization focused on stronger authentication that now has more than 90 members, but relatively few participants are from outside the U.S., he notes. Getting more involvement in the alliance from companies in Europe and Asia-Pacific will be a priority, “as well as broadening out the kind of vendor constituencies that we have so far,” he adds.
