Microsoft Joins Group Determined to Kill Passwords
Microsoft has joined a group determined to ditch the traditional password as a security measure. The group wants to develop alternatives that are more capable of protecting our favorite devices and most sensitive data.
The group is called the FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) Alliance, which is based around the idea that passwords, although widely used and easy to understand, are an inherently flawed security measure because they can be guessed or stolen.
With Microsoft and Google on-board this group could standardize something and put it in front of the most people. What will they decide on though?
