Overview#

Universal Authentication Framework is a FIDO protocol that authenticates a user locally, before the local device used to access the online service authenticates itself to the server.

No user password is required.

The FIDO Authenticator authenticates the user using a PIN, biometric factor (e.g., facial recognition, voice recognition, iris recognition, fingerprint recognition), or similar data before proving presence to the online services.

The PIN or biometric data should be securely stored, thereby preventing these credentials from leaving the local device.

FIDO specifications define a common interface for whatever local authentication Factor the user exercises.
