Hi Kaliya


I believe Kim got the idea from me as I discussed it with him a few years ago. We also published details of our first FIDO/VC implementation (started in 2016) in IEEE Comms Standards here:


David W Chadwick, Romain Laborde, Arnaud Oglaza, Remi Venant, Samer Wazan, Manreet Nijjar “Improved Identity Management with Verifiable Credentials and FIDO”. IEEE Communications Standards Magazine. Vol 3, Issue 4, Dec 2019, Pages 14-20


Our current Identiproof product has integrated FIDO2 into our VC infrastructure, see




Kind regards

Hi CCG! 


 I'm writing to share an article in WIRED about the "future of FIDO"

 It just came out and reading it made me wonder how what they are proposing/doing. 


A Big Bet to Kill the Password for Good

After a decade of work, the FIDO Alliance says it’s found the missing piece in the bridge to a password-free future.

I'm curious if this group might invite a FIDO person to explain to us what they 'are' doing/proposing. 


I also want to share context - that i'm curious if anyone actually knows details about - Kim Cameron before he died said he was sketching out how he saw VCs/SSI - OIDC/SIOP - and FIDO all dancing well together.
