About Authenticate 2024

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 multi-factor 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 2024, 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 2024 will be held at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, California for the second year in a row. This venue includes ample space for our growing audience, more sessions and session types for all levels, and more opportunities for networking with peers. The 2024 event will include our most dynamic expo hall yet, where all exhibiting sponsors can showcase their solutions and meet companies looking for partners on their path to passwordless.

Whether you are new to FIDO, in the midst of deployment or somewhere in between, Authenticate 2024 will have the right content – and community – for you.
