The concepts and technical designs behind the FIDO protocol were written and introduced by Nok Nok founders in 2011 to address the usability, interoperability, and security risks associated with the username-password scheme as a form of authentication.
Nok Nok founded the FIDO Alliance in 2013 with a hand-selected group of like-minded companies and contributed the core technical specifications and key ideas that are at the heart of the FIDO Alliance today.
We remain a guiding hand for the Alliance as a Board Member, author of multiple FIDO specifications and co-chair the security & certification working groups. We are proud, most recently, to have been co-authors with Google, Microsoft, PayPal, and others of the latest FIDO specifications called the FIDO2 Project. Alongside the existing FIDO standards that reach over 3B+ users, the arrival of the FIDO2 project promises to kick off a new era of internet security. The standards combine security with ease of use for end-users, developers, and IT with broad reach across every major computing platform and use case. Our work has the support of the majority of the computer and phone industry from hardware to operating system and by major financial institutions as well as regulators and standards bodies.
The program intends to enable customers to quickly realize the FIDO value propositions and reduce the time to market. Salient features of the program:
Strategy Assessment: Aligning strategic initiatives around identity as a building block of the customer’s mobile or web application platform.
Proof of Concept: Accelerated implementation of prototypes for customer-specific use cases and solutions with demonstrated return on investment.
Production: Internet-scale deployment and monetization based on customer preference for on-premise or cloud-based solutions.
Scale: Launch and drive adoption across multiple services including customer facing messaging and content formulation, service handling, and growth strategy.
Disruptive Innovation: Joint evaluation of innovation in the areas of emerging trends such as IoT, blockchain, omni-channel authentication, digitization, and more.
The team’s focus is to help you realize your vision for the project. Demonstrate benefits of transforming customer experience with any of the biometric authenticators, improve security posture with un-phishable authentication, reduce the cost of interoperability with an existing identity, risk and relying on party applications.
FIDO Jumpstart program is designed to deliver a fully operational FIDO-compliant mobile application and a relying party application server in your testing environment.
Evangelization workshop to assess FIDO and next-generation authentication applicability to your organization, update on FIDO and Web Authentication specifications and upcoming changes, and define the scope of a FIDO implementation
Define scope and prioritize the mobile and relying party applications. Develop strategy and execution plan for the scope of the project.
Support execution by aligning tasks and activities across stakeholders including a cross-functional team of Business Leaders, Product Owners, Developers, Architects, IT Security, Network Operations, etc.
