Reveals Final Results of FIDO Hackathon… Sharing domestic and international FIDO use cases and FIDO developer workshop
The FIDO Alliance announced that the FIDO Seoul Seminar was held at the Millennium Hilton Seoul Grand Ballroom on the 23rd. The FIDO Seoul Seminar was held in the morning with a panel discussion, FIDO Hackathon final presentation and award ceremony, and a developer workshop and case study track.
In the morning, panel discussions were held by key members of the FIDO Korea Working Group. As a panelist, Kim Dong-ho, Samsung SDS Pro, said, “We participated in the FIDO Hackathon Mentor this year, developing new services with our mentees and applying for domestic and international patents, as well as Samsung Pay, financial institutions, and online shopping. “The strong security and convenience of the FIDO protocol, which is widely used on the back, but invisible, is significant because it can show its potential in various areas.”
SK Telecom Manager Shin Min-il, who shared the case of enterprise FIDO protocol deployment, said, “After introducing the FIDO protocol into the authentication system used by more than 47,000 employees of SK Group companies, we login indiscriminately by the account and password that the attacker has already hijacked. Credential Stuffing, an attack technique that further leaks user information, was completely disabled. Based on this success story, we will introduce the FIDO protocol to SK Telecom’s T-ID service by the end of this year. ”
Shin-Ho Shin, the team leader who participated in the seminar on behalf of the Korea Telecommunications Association (TTA), said, “TTA has been the only security performance test laboratory certified by the FIDO Alliance. I am pleased to be honored. ”
Kim Jong-soo, chief executive of Samsung Electronics, shared his efforts to improve security based on FIDO. “Over 90% of Samsung’s products, such as TVs, home appliances, and mobile devices, are ready for the IoT, Based on our experience in improving usability and security at the same time, we are discovering meaningful cases based on the FIDO protocol in various IoT applications. ”
