Securely Onboarding All the Things: The FIDO Fit in IoT

Addressing the deep-rooted issues within IoT – aiming to provide a comprehensive authentication framework for IoT devices relying on passwordless authentication

December 7, 2022 | Event has Passed


There are deep-rooted issues within the IoT – devices shipping with default passwords and the slow, expensive and insecure manual onboarding process leave devices, and the networks they operate on, open to large-scale attack. This is compounded by a lack of security standards and typical processes within the IoT. The FIDO Alliance formed the IoT Technical Working Group to address these challenges – aiming to provide a comprehensive authentication framework for IoT devices relying on passwordless authentication.

The FIDO Device Onboard (FDO) specification is the working group’s first output: a new, open IoT standard which enables devices to simply and securely onboard to cloud and on-premise management platforms.

Join us for the Authenticate Virtual Summit: Securely Onboarding All the Things on December 7, 2022 or via on-demand replay to get expert perspectives and education from leading industry organizations, solution providers and industry experts on how to leverage FIDO and related technologies to bring passwordless authentication to IoT.
