White Paper: FIDO for SCA Delegation to Merchants or Wallet Providers

The authentication of consumers during remote transactions has undeniable benefits in terms of security and approval rates but raises concerns of transactions being abandoned by consumers, as those consumers are not always able to authenticate properly to their banks.

Merchants and wallet providers have an existing relationship with consumers, and there is an opportunity to leverage authentication mechanisms established during that relationship to authenticate to remote transactions as a delegation of the bank’s authentication.

This white paper reviews the different authentication mechanisms that can be used by merchants or wallet providers in the context of Strong Customer Authentication (SCA) Delegation and explains why FIDO is best positioned to meet the requirements from regulatory authorities, banks, merchants, or wallet providers.
