Following the announcement of the FIDO Ready Certification program, the 2014 International Consumers Electronics Show (CES) will give FIDO Alliance members the opportunity to display and demo FIDO Ready authentication solutions.
The industry, along with its Relying Parties and users have been calling for innovative authentication alternatives from FIDO Alliance members in the hopes that the shift away from password dependency can finally commence. FIDO Alliance members will be demoing their FIDO Ready authentication products along with other members’ authentication innovations that are preparing to incorporate FIDO authentication standards in the future.
The solutions to be displayed at CES have each undergone an interoperability testing process hosted by an independent testing organization and leveraging the Nok Nok Labs Multifactor Authentication Client and Server. The FIDO Ready product demoes are expected to illustrate the value that interoperable, more secure, private and easier to use authentication devices can deliver to users.
FIDO Alliance members expected to participate in the FIDO Ready showcase include AGNITiO, FingerQ, Nok Nok Labs, Synaptics and Yubico.
AGNITiO’s Voice iD. Leveraging the human voice to authenticate on a phone or mobile device, Voice iD performs all of a user’s identification needs while on the go by supporting authentication to devices and applications, as well as secure digital transactions.
FingerQ’s PrivacQ Triangle. A collaborative effort with fellow FIDO Alliance member Synaptics, PrivacQ Triangle leverages the FIDO Ready, Validity’s Natural ID fingerprint sensor to allow users to outfit their laptops and legacy devices with a small and portable touch fingerprint biometric solution.
