FEITIAN Launches FIDO2 Products with FIDO2 Release
23rd October, 2018
BEIJING, CHINA and SANTA CLARA, CA – On September 26, 2018, the FIDO Alliance announced through a Press Release that the leading technology companies were beginning to ship the products for the newly launched FIDO2. Today, FEITIAN Technologies US is announcing that it is now beginning to ship their FIDO2 Security Key products.
The FIDO2 authentication technology is comprised of the W3C’s Web Authentication specification and the corresponding Client to Authenticator Protocol (CTAP) from FIDO Alliance. Collectively, these standards enable users to leverage common devices to more easily authenticate to online services through mobile and desktop browsers. FIDO2 supports a variety of authentication use cases and experiences, including password-less, second-factor and multi-factor for the highest levels of assurance. Password-only logins can now be replaced with easy user gestures using embedded biometrics (facial recognition, iris scan, fingerprint swipe) and/or portable security keys.
FEITIAN’s certified FIDO2 products include:
• BioPass FIDO2® (K24) with on-device Biometric Fingerprint and USB-A Interface;
• BioPass FIDO2® (K27) with on-device Biometric Fingerprint and USB-A Interface;
• BioPass FIDO2® (K26) with on-device Biometric Fingerprint and USB-C Interface;
• ePass FIDO2®-NFC (K9) with NFC / USB-A Interfaces.
