About FIDO2 Technology
FIDO2 is the latest specification of FIDO Alliance (Fast Identity Online), which was created to provide open and license-free standards for secure, Web Authentication. First came FIDO U2F, then FIDO UAF and lately followed by the FIDO2.
At its core, FIDO2 consists of the Client to Authenticator Protocol (CTAP) and the W3C standard WebAuthn, which together enable authentication, where users identify themselves with cryptographic authenticators (such as biometrics or PINs) or external authenticators (such as FIDO keys, wearable or mobile devices) to a, trusted WebAuthn remote peer (also known as a FIDO2 server) that typically belongs to a website or web app.
