Different types of FIDO authentication
FIDO authentication comes in a few different types, each offering unique features and capabilities. The most common types include:
- FIDO U2F (Universal 2nd Factor): This type uses a physical security key for two-factor authentication, providing an extra layer of protection beyond passwords.
- FIDO2: FIDO2 enables passwordless authentication and supports various devices, including smartphones and other mobile devices. It uses either a biometric authentication method or a PIN for verification.
- FIDO UAF (Universal Authentication Framework): With UAF, users can use biometrics or other local authentication methods to log in to their devices or online accounts.
Understanding these different types can help you choose the right FIDO cloud authentication method to improve your firm's security. A Cloud App such as Okta enables you to create groups of Okta-recognized FIDO2 (WebAuthn) authenticators.
