The question: when will biometrics take over from passwords?

FIDO Alliance VP and Nok Nok Labs founder Ramesh Kesanupalli addresses the question by noting that passwords may always be used as a recovery mechanism. While biometrics have a significant opportunity, Ramesh emphasizes the open authentication field that FIDO standards enable…”There is no single type of authenticating solution that is going to be number one in the market. There is going to be a heterogeneous environment. The FIDO Alliance brings all of them together.”
