Fast IDentity Online/FIDO Alliance, who started up in July 2012, aim to do something very interesting. They want to use alternate authentication technologies like PINs (personal identification numbers) and other biometric capabilities that exist as part of their password replacement goals for a more secure worldwide web future.
The FIDO Alliance has LG Electronics, MasterCard, Lenovo, Google, Infineon, as the big names, among other less known companies joining ranks with them.
