Fido 2 standard towards a secure electronic future without passwords
The problem of remembering the password for online accounts is very common among users, in addition to their exposure to a lot of hacking and theft of their accounts, and two-factor authentication is a good option to maintain security, but it requires a third party to verify at each login process, which causes complexity and confusion for the user.
Today, however, it provides a modern security standard called Fast Identity Online, otherwise known as Fido 2, which refers to a set of IT security standards, which have solved all previous problems and made the password irrelevant.
This standard allows for secure log in to Internet services without the need for a password. It creates two encrypted strings, which represent the public key and the private key. The registration in the service occurs by adopting the public key, and the secret key is stored on the device, which can be called the authentication factor.
The device also creates an electronic signature using the secret key and is verified by the public key, and from it, the user gets double security and protection from hackers who, even if they manage to steal the electronic signature, will not be able to exploit it thanks to the accompanying time stamp.
