The CFO of FIDO alliance reported on Wednesday that the fingerprint scanners to be on Android soon will be based on an open source system unlike that of the Touch ID used in Apple’s iPhone 5S.
“We didn’t create the current authentication mess overnight, so it’s going to take us a while to fix it. We need to educate the marketplace that it is possible to make things more secure for business and easier for consumers, while still ensuring that legitimate privacy concerns are respected.”-Phil Dunkelberger, CEO, Nok Nok Labs
FIDO was formed earlier this year in Febraury and has grown rapidly.It is made up of 48 tech companies. Apple, however, does not form the list yet. The first Android devices with FIDO backed fingerprint sensors will launch early in 2014, according to Barrett.
