Apple Joins FIDO Alliance as Board Member

Apple has joined the FIDO Alliance as a Board Member. The industry association is working to change the nature of authentication with open standards that are more secure than passwords and SMS one time passcodes.

Passwords endure despite the growing consensus their use needs to be reduced, if not replaced. But even though effective PKI and strong authentication solutions have existed for years, barriers to widespread adoption persist. Consumers don’t like the user experience, and online service providers don’t want the cost and complexity of developing and provisioning their own dedicated solutions. The FIDO Alliance is working to change the nature of authentication with open standards that are more secure than passwords and SMS OTPs, simpler for consumers to use, and easier for service providers to deploy and manage.
