FIDO-enabled platforms replace password match on the relying party website with a passwordless experience of biometric authentication on a user device. This session will cover how PCs can be vulnerable to attacks on simple host OS-based FIDO authenticators and capabilities available in Intel HW to create a trusted execution environment–based FIDO Authenticator to address such vulnerabilities.
Learning Objectives: 1: Understand how FIDO is addressing the industry challenge of eliminating passwords. 2: Learn pros and cons of host OS vs. trusted execution environment-based FIDO Authenticators. 3: Find out how PCs and Intel are addressing this challenge along with its ecosystem partners.
Pre-Requisites: Understanding the concept of trusted execution environments and vulnerability exposure in PC environments.
