TORONTO, ON -- (Marketwired) -- 07/21/14 -- Bionym announces today it has joined the FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) Alliance. As a collaborative effort, FIDO standards will make it easier for web services to leverage the Nymi as a secure authentication mechanism, without passwords. The FIDO Alliance seeks to create a new standard for strong authentication that will allow any website or cloud application to interface with a broad variety of existing and future FIDO-enabled devices. Google, MasterCard, and Bank of America are just a few of the current members: https://fidoalliance.org/membership/members/.
Bionym's goal of providing a single point of persistent identity through the Nymi is a strong complement to the FIDO framework. Set to work with FIDO-enabled services and websites, this creates a robust, trusted ecosystem for seamless authentication. Most importantly, FIDO is about user freedom, believing in the choice to use the authentication method that works for you.
"The FIDO Alliance represents a true collaborative effort to make online identity authentication both secure and effortless for users," says Bionym's CEO, Karl Martin, "Bionym's Nymi fits naturally within this framework, with our focus on seamless identity for a broad range of digital and physical applications. Joining the FIDO Alliance represents a natural step in bringing the Nymi to the masses and making it widely compatible across devices and services. We're extremely excited to bring our unique capability of persistent, trusted identity to the entire ecosystem of smart devices."
"Bionym is a notable addition to the FIDO Alliance, and we welcome their sponsorship and look forward to collaborating on FIDO standards," said Michael Barrett, president of the FIDO Alliance. "Bionym, with the FIDO Alliance, supports the simple strategy of delivering seamless, effortless and secure authentication. FIDO standards will make devices, like Bionym's Nymi, widely available and readily usable for the masses, by making the Nymi compatible and interoperable across systems, networks and services."
In joining FIDO Alliance, Bionym bolsters its multi-pronged strategy to deliver seamless, effortless and secure authentication. A broad range of applications that support the Nymi identity solution will soon become available thanks to the open release of the Nymi SDK this summer.
