Don’t miss this roundtable discussion on FIDO U2F and WebAuthn/FIDO2, and why these modern authentication standards are critical to the government’s security strategy. We’re speaking with Danelle Barrett, Former Rear Admiral, Director Navy Cyber Security and Deputy Chief Information Officer. FIDO U2F and WebAuthn/FIDO2 authentication standards are revolutionizing web authentication across the government and public sector. They ensure strong public key cryptography like PIV and CAC but don’t require a PKI backend; making it cost-effective, simple and secure for employees, contractors and partners to log in to web-facing applications and services. Register for this roundtable discussion to learn: -What is FIDO U2F and WebAuthn/FIDO2? -Why do government agencies need to get ahead of the WebAuthn/FIDO2 and FIDO U2F curve? -Best practices for cyber security and authentication using FIDO U2F and WebAuthn/FIDO2 hardware security keys -How these standards help drive full coverage authentication across work and personal accounts, air gap networks, and derived credentials Confidentiality and Data Processing: The information you provide in this form will be held in confidence by Yubico, Inc. and its Affiliates.
