Strong Authentication and the Road to FIDO

This article is part of a web development series from Microsoft. Thank you for supporting the partners who make SitePoint possible.

Whether we are on social media, shopping, or banking, almost all of our connections have the same first experience: enter your username and password. Enter the FIDO Alliance and the W3C. The FIDO Alliance is a collection of organizations working to move the web off of the password dependency and on to cryptographically strong credentials. In this talk, we’ll introduce you to .msCredential, an experimental version of the FIDO API implemented in Microsoft Edge, powered by Windows Hello.

This video is from Microsoft Edge Web Summit, a free conference organized and staffed by the engineers building Microsoft Edge and Chakra. You can find a full day of technical talks covering the EdgeHTML rendering engine, the open-source Chakra JavaScript engine, and developer tools. You can hear what’s next for the web platform that powers Windows 10, straight from the engineers who build it, and you can get an inside look at powerful techniques and new tools to make your life as a developer just a little bit easier.

We encourage you to test across browsers and devices, including Microsoft Edge–the default browser for Windows 10 – with free tools; including F12 developer tools — seven distinct, fully-documented tools to help you debug, test, and speed up your webpages. Also, visit the Edge blog to stay updated and informed from Microsoft developers and experts.
