FIDO2 is a project that was executed by the FIDO Alliance and World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). The standard itself consists of the W3C Web Authentication (WebAuthN) browser API standard and the FIDO Client to Authenticator Protocol (CTAP). FIDO2 builds on previous work done by the FIDO alliance for the Universal 2nd Factor (U2F) authentication standard.
FIDO2 cryptographic login credentials are unique across every website, never leave the user’s device and are never stored on a server. This security model eliminates the risks of phishing, all forms of password theft and replay attacks.
FIDO2 represents the building blocks to go beyond basic log-on and specifically the first strong authentication standard for the web.
Configuring passwordless authentication using FIDO2
For companies and businesses with existing systems or applications that are looking to implement FIDO2 Authentication in Pakistan, Tier3 can help you with two major changes that you will have to make to your application:
1) modifying the login and registration pages of your website or mobile application to use the FIDO protocols.
2) setup a FIDO server to authenticate any FIDO registration or authentication requests.
Tier3 Developers have experience to help and consult your business or IT Team with
FIDO-based transaction data signing operations, authentication flow, registration and attestation.
– Replication for high-availability
– Security policies
– SSO with JWT responses
– Integration with PKI
– Android Key Attestation for native Android apps
– Transaction confirmation support for digitally signed transactions
– Protection from side-channel attacks on FIDO credential database
– Integration with FIPS certified cryptographic hardware modules
Our Security Teams have worked with all the three major enablers of the FIDO2 flow as follow
- The FIDO2 Authenticator (biometrics, mobile devices or FIDO2 security keys)
- The client or browser – mediator
- The WebAuthn Relying Party (WSO2 Identity Server)
Fido2 tokens are easy and fast authentication that secure all major browsers and operating systems.
