Authenticate 2024 Conference

FIDO Alliance Announces Call for Speakers for Authenticate 2024

Carlsbad, Calif., January 24, 2024 – The FIDO Alliance is pleased to announce the return of Authenticate, the only industry conference dedicated to all aspects of user authentication – including a focus on FIDO-based sign-ins with passkeys. 

Authenticate 2024, featuring signature sponsors Google, Microsoft, and Yubico, will be held October 14-16, 2024 at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, CA, just north of San Diego. Information on submitting a speaking proposal is available on the event website.

Aimed at CISOs, security strategists, enterprise architects, and product and business leaders, this is the fifth consecutive year that the FIDO Alliance is hosting the public conference. The annual event is specifically designed to share education, tools, and best practices for modern authentication across web, enterprise, and government applications. 

Last year’s conference welcomed over 850 total attendees in Carlsbad and remotely. The event featured more than 100 sessions with highly engaging content, plus a sold-out exhibit area with 50+ industry-leading exhibitors and sponsors.

Authenticate 2024 will build upon this momentum and feature detailed case studies, technical tutorials, expert panels, and hands-on lab sessions aimed at helping educate attendees on business drivers, technical considerations, and overall best practices for deploying modern authentication systems. Attendees also benefit from a dynamic expo hall and engaging networking opportunities that tap into the natural beauty of Carlsbad and the La Costa Resort. 

Authenticate 2024 Call For Speakers

With today’s announcement, the Authenticate 2024 program committee has opened its call for speakers. Authenticate provides speakers with an opportunity to increase their industry reach and visibility by educating attendees on in-market approaches for deploying modern authentication solutions.

The committee is looking for vendor-neutral, educational presentations that focus on authentication implementations and best practices for specific steps of the passwordless journey from the service provider perspective for consumer and workforce rollouts across regulated and non-regulated industries. 

Submissions can span all aspects of authentication implementations from initial research and business case development through piloting to rollout and beyond. Perspectives on global trends and considerations for user authentication and topics closely related to user authentication and account lifecycle management will also be considered. 

The committee is looking for a variety of session types and formats including main stage market perspectives, detailed case studies, technical tutorials, hands-on labs, and thought provoking panels. Experienced and new speakers alike are encouraged to submit proposals.

Submissions that are unique, expertise-driven, and reflect diversity in speakers are most likely to be accepted. Product and sales pitches will not be accepted.

The Authenticate Call for Speakers closes on March 4, 2024. To submit an application, please visit
