Blackberry Joins FIDO Alliance and Board

BlackBerry has joined the FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) Alliance, an industry consortium for online authentication with standards-based specifications, and has also been appointed the board of directors. FIDO members share technology and collaborate to deliver open specifications for universal authentication that enables FIDO-compliant authentication methods to be interoperable, more secure and private and easier to use. BlackBerry is among the first mobile platform and mobile device suppliers to engage with the FIDO Alliance. The FIDO protocol will support a range of authentication technologies and allow the interaction of technologies within a single infrastructure. These protocols enable security options to be specifically tailored to fit the needs of each user and organization.
