SecurityKeys for Windows Hello

Our Trusted Partner Feitian has worked closely with Microsoft to provide a ubiquitous, hardware-backed logon experience through Windows Hello. For enterprises who use passwords today and have a shared PC environment, security keys for Windows Hello provide a more seamless way for employees to authenticate without entering a username or password.

What is FIDO 2?

The FIDO2 new specifications complement existing password less FIDO UAF and second-factor FIDO U2F use cases, and expand the availability of FIDO Authentication. FIDO2 web browsers and online services are fully backwards compatible with all previously certified FIDO Security Keys. The standardization of the new FIDO2 specifications in browsers and operating systems will further expand the reach of FIDO Authentication, which is referenced by regulators and standards setting bodies worldwide and is already available on hundreds of millions of devices and offered to more than 3.5 billion user accounts worldwide.

“With the new FIDO2 specifications and leading web browser support announced today, we are taking a big step forward towards making FIDO Authentication ubiquitous across all platforms and devices,” said Brett McDowell, executive director of the FIDO Alliance.

With FIDO2 new specification and FEITIAN BioPass FIDO2 Security Keys, users can enjoy a safer authentication via one single touch and enhanced security and privacy. This stronger authentication scheme will be integrated into safety-critical verticals including enterprises, healthcare, finance and governments.

The Windows Hello FIDO2 Security Key feature is now in limited preview. Please let us know if you would like to be added to the waitlist.
