W3C Urges Adoption of New Web Authentication Standard

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and FIDO Alliance “achieved a major standards milestone in the global effort to bring simpler yet stronger web authentication to users around the world,” according to the press release. FIDO submitted Web Authentication (WebAuthn), “a collaborative effort based on Web API specifications … that can be incorporated into browsers and related web platform infrastructure which gives users new methods to securely authenticate on the web, in the browser and across sites and devices” to the W3C. The W3C advanced it to the Candidate Recommendation (CR) stage—“a precursor to final approval of a web standard. …” The W3C is encouraging online services and web app developers to implement it, and Google, Microsoft, and Mozilla have agreed to support it in their flagship browsers.
