Submission + - Open, Non-Proprietary Authentication Protocol Framework (

Orome1 writes: "The newly formed FIDO Alliance aims to revolutionize online authentication with an industry supported standards-based open protocol. The FIDO standard will support a full range of technologies, including biometrics such as fingerprint scanners, voice and facial recognition, as well as existing authentication solutions and communications standards, such as TPM, USB Security Tokens, NFC, OTP and many other existing and future technology options. FIDO-compliant smartphones, tablets, PCs and laptops can replace password dependency and exposure of sensitive user information by automatically and transparently providing user credentials when they’re required."
