In addition, the FIDO Alliance aims to standardize user-controlled authentication mechanisms such as smartphones or hardware security keys via cryptographic authentication


The Alliance aims to replace passwords by using a superior authentication method that leverages systems such as public key cryptography to make its authentication methods resistant to phishing, password loss, and many other attacks. The security keys are usually USB devices but can also use Bluetooth or NFC-enabled technology.
