The number of FIDO certified products soared in the first quarter.
FIDO authentication is now enabled on devices from the top five global handset manufacturers.
Additionally, service providers including Google, PayPal, Samsung, Bank of America, NTT DOCOMO, Dropbox, and GitHub have made FIDO authentication available to protect hundreds of millions of end-users’ desktop and mobile apps, while RSA and eBay have launched FIDO-compliant solutions for enterprise and commerce deployment, respectively.
The FIDO Alliance, reports more than 150 products are now FIDO Certified, up 50% percent in just one quarter.
The latest round of certifications comes after the FIDO Alliance hosted its first Korean-based interoperability testing event, which garnered the largest number of FIDO-implementing companies ever in a single testing event. Organizations attending these events are able to test and validate their FIDO implementations to prove that their certified products truly interoperate with each other – a necessity for achieving the FIDO Alliance’s vision for universal and interoperable strong authentication.
Organizations with new FIDO Certified products announced today include: BTWorks, Crosscert, CrucialTec, Dayside, eWBM, FacialNetwork, GOTrust Technology, HANCOM Secure, INITECH, International Systems Research., KICA (Korea Information Certificate Authority), KT, Open Security Research., SECUVE, SGA Solutions, SK Planet, SK Telecom.
FIDO certification testing is based on industry-standard best practices to objectively evaluate technical implementations of the FIDO 1.0 specifications, FIDO UAF and FIDO U2F. FIDO certification is open to all who want to offer FIDO authentication in products and services compliant with FIDO specifications.
