U.S. CISA supports FIDO’s passwordless identity authentication mechanism, becoming the new generation multi-factor authentication standard

Every October, the White House promotes a month-long “Cybersecurity Awareness Month” as part of the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). Director Jen Easterly is even more active in traveling around, hoping to raise the information security awareness of the American people. She also published an article and recorded a video on Twitter a few days ago (October 18), saying that she will support the FIDO (Fast Identity Online) alliance to support biometric identification such as fingerprints and the passwordless digital identity authentication mechanism for FIDO vehicles. It can replace the MFA (multi-factor authentication) mechanism of SMS OTP (one-time password) commonly used in all walks of life, making FIDO a new generation of digital identity authentication mechanism.
