"Our intention is to really obliterate, within a certain number of years, both passwords and PINs and see the whole Internet—including internally in enterprises—obliterate user IDs and passwords and PINs from the face of the planet.”
Michael Barrett, former Chief Information Security Officer at PayPal, stated his path earlier this year. We’ve invited Michael to join us to hear exactly what he’s been up to the past few months and learn how FIDO is working to revolutionize online authentication and the way we interact with technology moving forward, especially mobile.
In this talk with Michael Barrett, we will explore:
1. The FIDO Alliance, and why companies like Google, Mastercard, and PayPal have all jumped on the FIDO wagon
2. Why it is different from other authentication initiatives
3. How Universal Authetication Framework (UAF) and Universal Second Factor (USF) work in demos by Nok Nok Labs
