With HANKO you are able to offer your users the security and convenience of passwordless authentication. Get your website or app ready for a future without passwords.


The HANKO Authentication Service consists of a cloud-hosted universal FIDO (fast identity online) server, multiple server SDKs for all major platforms, FIDO-compatible authenticator apps and app SDKs for iOS and Android.

Through HANKO your users benefit from the security and convenience of standardized, password-less authentication methods. Microsoft has implemented FIDO in Windows 10 and most browsers already support FIDO authentication natively. Do not miss the boat and prepare yourself for the password-less future.

Universal FIDO Server

Using our universal FIDO server guarantees maximum flexibility and scalability for your authentication system. It enables authentication with all FIDO certified methods and devices as well as out-of-band authentication supported by our HANKO Authenticator mobile app or app SDKs. HANKO can be adapted to new requirements with minimal effort. You determine the guidelines according to which your users should be authenticated.


With multiple SDKs for various platforms, we make sure that our HANKO Authentication Service can be integrated into your website, your app or your authentication system without any expert knowledge. No matter on which development stack you rely on, HANKO provides you with sample code, tutorials, and documentation for integrating easily into your system.

Authenticator Apps

HANKO does not only provide the SDKs for the integration into your services but also offers authenticator apps for Android and iOS. If you do not have your own app, but want to offer your users the security and convenience of a password-less authentication on non-FIDO-ready devices, our authenticator apps are just the right choice for you.

Commitment to FIDO Standards

HANKO fully relies on the standards developed by the FIDO Alliance. The FIDO specifications enable an interoperable ecosystem of hardware-, mobile- and biometrics-based authenticators for strong authentication. As many other well-known organizations, HANKO is a FIDO Alliance member.

    The Vision

    "We make passwords obsolete!" – This was our vision when we started in spring of 2015 to work on HANKO. An initial market analysis shows that existing solutions still rely on passwords as the first authentication factor or have other weaknesses.

    First Steps

    The first prototypes of the authenticator app and HANKO server are being developed. We prove that our concept of password-less authentication works. The first product idea is born during this time.

    Verifying the Product Idea

    We visit the FIDO alliance seminar in Berlin and decide to fully rely on FIDO for the realization of HANKO. Our product idea is getting more and more specific and the need for an on-demand FIDO solution is being verified.
