FIDO 2.0 (FIDO2) is an open authentication standard that enables leveraging common devices to authenticate to online services in both mobile and desktop environments.

FIDO2 is comprised of the W3C’s Web Authentication specification (WebAuthn) and FIDO’s corresponding Client-to-Authenticator Protocol (CTAP). WebAuthn defines a standard web API that can be built into browsers and related web platform infrastructure to enable online services to use FIDO Authentication. CTAP enables external devices such as mobile handsets or FIDO Security Keys to work with WebAuthn and serve as authenticators to desktop applications and web services.

Janssen includes a FIDO2 component to implement a two-step, two-factor authentication (2FA) with username / password as the first step, and any FIDO2 device as the second step.

During Janssen installation, the administrator will have the option to also install the FIDO2 component.
