FIDO two-factor authentication goes wireless

Tim Greene | July 1, 2015
FIDO Alliance spells out how Bluetooth, Bluetooth-Lite and near-field communications can support more secure authentication.

The FIDO Alliance mission is to make FIDO more widely available and so reduce the reliance on usernames and passwords in favor of more secure two-factor authentication, Barrett says. FIDO two-factor authentication is less expensive than traditional two-factor infrastructure. A Yubico NEO, for instance, costs $50 on Amazon.com.

Some of the FIDO Alliance's 150-plus members are Google, PayPal, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Microsoft, RSA, VISA, Discover, MasterCard, Lenovo and Alibaba.

FIDO specifications address the new FIDO U2F transport protocols can be found here.
