Modernizing Authentication Across Federal Government with Fast Identity Online (FIDO)

This event qualifies for 1 CPEs

With NIST 800-63 Digital Identity Guideline guidance on Fast IDentity Online (FIDO) expected in 2022, Federal agencies need to start thinking about modernizing authentication across internal and external applications and infrastructures today.


Relying on username and password or mobile-based authentication for use cases such as cloud, citizen-facing digital services, and areas where Personal Identity Verification (PIV) and Common Access Card (CAC) aren’t suitable or eligible, is much too risky. Additionally, NIST requires that multi-factor authentication be ‘verifier impersonation-resistant’. Outside of traditional Public Key Infrastructure (PKI), FIDO U2F and its password-less evolution, FIDO2, are the only authentication standards that can securely augment the PIV and CAC while meeting NIST guidelines.


But what can agencies expect when implementing FIDO-based modern authentication?


Join this webinar to hear discussion on the challenges of introducing FIDO into the Government, and best practices for Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation (CDM) driven tracking and lifecycle management of FIDO tokens such as hardware security keys.
