First Quarter Certifications Highlight Continuing Expansion of FIDO Ecosystem

The FIDO Alliance had a strong start to 2019, especially on the certification front. Several companies achieved certification in the first quarter of 2019 across all of our certification programs. This includes FIDO2, FIDO UAF and FIDO U2F certifications, as well as our new FIDO Biometric Component Certification.

The continued strong interest in FIDO certification shows that globally, technology providers, service providers and enterprises not only understand the importance of certification when implementing and/or deploying FIDO authentication, but require it.

The list of certifications from the first quarter includes Google, which achieved FIDO2 certification for Android. With this, mobile apps and websites can leverage FIDO standards to provide a simple and secure biometric login for users on over a billion devices supporting Android 7.0+.

It also includes Samsung, which received our first certification under the FIDO Biometric Component Certification Program for its Samsung Galaxy S10 and S10+ smartphones. This certification validates that the new in-display fingerprint recognition system meets industry standards for user verification and detecting presentation (or “spoof”) attacks.

The full list of companies that achieved certification this quarter are:

  • FIDO UAF: Aisino Corporation; Daon; and GoTrustID Inc.
  • FIDO U2F: LAWtrust and Yubico
  • FIDO2: Daon; Egis Technology Inc.; Feitian Technologies Co., Ltd.; Google; HYPR; Hyundai Motor Group; NXP Semiconductors; Softgiken; Shenzhen Excelsecu Data Technology Co., Ltd.; StrongKey; Vancosys Data Solutions Inc.; and Yubico
  • FIDO Biometric Component Certification: Samsung

With this strong start for 2019, we expect to see continued movement toward FIDO adoption and deployments. If you’re interested in getting started with FIDO Authentication, check out our knowledge base for detailed information on business case, implementation guidance and more.
