About Authenticate 2023

It’s time to modernize your authentication! Organizations around the globe are embracing a new way to authenticate with FIDO standards, moving past passwords and legacy forms of multifactor authentication to provide users with passkeys for phishing-resistant sign-ins. Their results? Strong security, lessened data breach risk, improved user experiences, faster sign-in rates, and reduced costs.
Join these industry leaders as they come together at Authenticate 2023, and get the latest tools and insights to get your organization on the path to strong, modern passwordless authentication.
Hosted by the FIDO Alliance, Authenticate is the industry’s only conference dedicated to all aspects of user authentication – including a focus on FIDO-based sign-ins. It is the place for CISOs, business leaders, product managers, security strategists and identity architects to get all of the education, tools and best practices to roll out modern authentication across web, enterprise and government applications.
Authenticate 2023 will be held at the Omni La Costa Resort in Carlsbad, CA, just North of San Diego with a bigger footprint for more attendees, sessions for all levels, a larger expo hall for companies bringing passwordless to fruition, and added opportunities for networking with your peers. The agenda will feature 101s, detailed case studies, technical tutorials, developer meetups, hands on labs, expert panels, and more.
Whether you are new to FIDO, in the midst of deployment or somewhere in between, Authenticate 2023 will have the right content – and community – for you.
