Figuring out FIDO (i.e. the Fast IDentity Online alliance and standard)

No one hates passwords more than I do and it seems like I’m asked to register for a new site each day. For those of us in the know, this situation of “password sprawl” is even more frustrating because we really should have solved this problem years ago. After all, Whit Diffie, Marty Hellman, and the RSA guys first came up with PKI back in the 1970s so you’d think that passwords would be dead and strong authentication would be ubiquitous by now!
