FIDO Alliance Announces Government Membership Program -- US and UK Government Agencies Are First to Join

Market Watch - The FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) Alliance (, an industry consortium launched in 2013 to revolutionize online security with open standards for simpler, stronger authentication, today introduced a new class of membership for government agencies to directly participate in the development of FIDO standards. The new Government membership program was conceived in response to government agency appeals to engage more directly with the FIDO Alliance, and represents government's particular interests in securing cyberspace with FIDO authentication. U.S. and UK governments are the first to join the Alliance under the Government Class membership: United States NSTIC/NIST; and United Kingdom Office of the Cabinet.
