Abstract: We will present the new FIDO2 Strong Authentication Method.

FIDO2 is an open standard, co-developed by Yubico, Microsoft, and other members of the FIDO Alliance that enables expanded options for strong authentication including the flexibility to now offer passwordless single factor or multi-factor strong authentication to users, in addition to supporting the existing scenario of two factor authentication.

FIDO2 is comprised of two standardized components, a web API (WebAuthn) and a Client to Au- thenticator Protocol (CTAP). The two work together and are required to achieve a passwordless experience for login. WebAuthn defines a standard web API that can be integrated into browsers and web platform infrastructure to give users new methods to securely authenticate on the web. CTAP enables an external authenticator, such as a security key, to communicate strong authentication credentials locally over USB, NFC, or Bluetooth to the user’s PC or mobile phone.
