About Hanko

From Idea to Product.

The Vision

2016-2017

"We make passwords obsolete!" – That was our vision when we started working on Hanko as a side project. A quick analysis showed that all existing solutions still relied on passwords as the first authentication factor or have other weaknesses. There must be a better solution...

First Steps

2017-2018

The first prototypes of Hanko Authenticator App are being developed. We prove that our concept of passwordless authentication works. First pilot customers were found quickly.

FIDO Certification

Summer 2019

We participate in the FIDO Alliance certification event in Lisbon and pass all certification tests with our Hanko FIDO Server. The final product is getting more and more polished and the need for an on-demand FIDO solution is being verified.

Launch

2020

Hanko Authentication API and Hanko Authenticator App are ready to make convenient and secure passwordless authentication with FIDO2, WebAuthn, and FIDO UAF as easy as 1-2-3.
