Nok Nok adds a risk engine for FIDO driven authentication

In February 2014, Quocirca reviewed the FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) standard for authenticating consumers to web service providers (I am not a dog, FIDO a new standard for user authentication). In 2014, the FIDO Alliance had attracted over 100 supporters; the site now lists around 250. Quocirca compared FIDO with the SSL/TLS standard for authenticating online resources to users, noting that FIDO provided assurance in the other direction, that users were who they said they were.
