FIDO and WebAuthn, but without the Hassle

Supporting FIDO-based passwordless multi-factor authentication methods on a website or app normally requires additional complex infrastructure in your application stack. This would include code for handling cryptographic keys and signatures, authenticator attestation data, and multi-step authentication flows.

Easy to integrate

With Hanko Authentication, you can skip all this and get straight to the fun of integrating FIDO into your frontend. We also provide you with demo code, example implementations, best practices, and detailed instructions to make your life even better.

Don’t want to spend much time on your sign up and authentication UI either? Check out Hanko Identity, our complete toolkit for modern digital identities.

One API for Everything You Need

We carefully extended the core FIDO capabilities of our API by adding some functionality that makes integration even more effective.

Device Management API

This includes an Authenticator Device Management API to help you keep track of all FIDO Authenticators each of your users may have set up.

Get notified

Another example of added value is the Push Notification Service that helps you set up FIDO out-of-band authentication with Hanko Authenticator in no time.
