Algemetric joins the FIDO Alliance

Algemetric is now a proud member of the FIDO Alliance at the Associate level. Fido Alliance, an open industry association, is changing the nature of authentication with authentication standards to help reduce the world’s over-reliance on passwords via promoting the development of, use of, and compliance with standards for authentication and device attestation.

 

The FIDO Alliance was founded in 2012, and over nine years, major players of the technology industry have joined, including PayPal, Google, Samsung, Microsoft, Intel, Arm, Facebook, Amazon, Apple, among many others.


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.

On the Federal Zero Trust Strategy

The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) recently released a Federal Zero Trust Strategy in support of the Executive Order on Improving the Nation’s Cybersecurity to push the adoption of zero trust principles across civilian agencies’ enterprise security architecture. In this post we discuss immediate implications of this announcement and how Spectra by Algemetric relates to it.

Algemetric Joins W3C

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) is an international organization that develops Web standards in collaboration with member organizations, a full-time staff, and the general public. W3C, which is led by Web inventor and Director Tim Berners-Lee and CEO Jeffrey Jaffe, aims to guide the Web to its full potential.

The Power of Data-Centric Technologies

While virtually all digital technologies take advantage of data at some capacity, some technologies are enabled and sometimes even defined in terms of how data is expressed, represented, organized, manipulated, transmitted, stored, among other aspects. This type of solution is what data-centric technologies (DCTs) are about. DCTs are not only interesting in their own merits, but they can also enable other powerful solutions with unprecedented results.

Algemetric joins the MPC Alliance

There is a whole new series of security and privacy solutions powered by threshold security, multiparty computation (MPC), and related technologies. Those are methodologies and mechanisms that are helping to shape the secure computation of the future.
