Windows Passwordless Support for FIDO2 Security Keys

The latest iteration of Workstation Passwordless for Windows has incorporated the ability for FIDO2 key-based authentication. As a result, users can now benefit from the enhanced security protocol that enables passwordless login procedures. This updated version represents a significant improvement in the passwordless login process, facilitating a more streamlined and user-friendly experience while concurrently elevating security measures.

Utilizing an “enroll-once-use-anywhere” methodology, the end user can now seamlessly register their security key on the AdminX control plane and utilize it for authentication across various platforms. Specifically, this includes both web applications that have been integrated with BlockID, as well as Windows workstations that have the BlockID Credential Provider installed. This streamlined approach offers heightened convenience and flexibility for end-users, without sacrificing security protocols.
