From the FIDO Alliance’s website:
The FIDO Alliance is working to change the nature of authentication with open standards that are more secure than passwords and SMS OTPs, simpler for consumers to use, and easier for service providers to deploy and manage. The FIDO Alliance works to fulfill its mission by:
- Developing technical specifications that define an open, scalable, interoperable set of mechanisms that reduce the reliance on passwords to authenticate users
- Operating industry certification programs to help ensure successful worldwide adoption of the specifications
- Submitting mature technical specification(s) to recognized standards development organization(s) for formal standardization.
Algemetric is committed to delivering IAM solutions compliant with FIDO’s standards and looking forward to contributing with a wide variety of use cases, scientific and industrial insights, and innovative implementations of IAM for machine-to-machine communication.
