Artificial intelligence vs. strong FIDO authentication
An article titled “Artificial Intelligence Will Become a Tool for Cybercriminals: What Challenges Does the Cybersecurity Sector Face?” has been published on the MamStartup portal, with contributions from Tomasz Kowalski and Marcin Szary, who shared their knowledge in the field of FIDO, passwordless and authentication security. We decided to focus on analyzing the parts of this article focusing on AI and FIDO authentication issues.
FIDO vs AI
The article presents FIDO authentication as a solution to enhance security in an era of evolving artificial intelligence. The user’s biometric features, which used to be considered sufficient, may now be insufficient due to technological advances.
FIDO (Fast Identity Online) authentication introduces hybrid online verification schemes that integrate different authentication factors, such as something the user has (e.g., a U2F key), something the user uses (e.g., a fingerprint), and something the user is (e.g., biometric traits). The introduction of this approach allows for a significant increase in the level of security, providing multi-level identity protection.
In an era of evolving artificial intelligence, where the threat from attacks that circumvent biometric verification is growing, FIDO authentication can be an effective response. By using a variety of authentication factors, such as physical keys, fingerprints, and biometric features, there is less risk that artificial intelligence or bypass techniques will be able to easily impersonate a third party.
FIDO authentication not only provides a higher level of security but also provides users with convenience and ease in using various online services. Eliminating the need to remember passwords and instead using physical keys or biometric features makes the authentication process much easier.
The introduction of FIDO authentication can therefore help deal with the cyber security challenge brought on by the development of artificial intelligence. Integrating various authentication factors provides strong protection for users’ identities and makes it difficult for potential attackers to easily bypass the system.
