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.
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.
