W3C and the FIDO Alliance Announce Standard to Make the Web More Secure

The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and the FIDO Alliance announced that the Web Authentication (WebAuthn) specification has become an official web standard. Supported by various browsers, such as Chrome, Firefox, and Safari, WebAuthn is a browser and platform standard for simpler and stronger authentication. It “allows users to log into their internet accounts using their preferred device. Web services and apps can—and should—turn on this functionality to give their users the option to log in more easily via biometrics, mobile devices and/or FIDO security keys, and with much higher security over passwords alone,” according to the press release.

For more information, read the press release.
