Smartphone or tablet as a Passkey

Authentication of HES via Passkey

Based on FIDO standards, passkeys are a replacement for passwords that provide faster, easier, and more secure sign-ins to websites and apps across a user’s devices. Unlike passwords, passkeys are always strong and phishing-resistant.​

Passkeys simplify account registration for apps and websites, are easy to use, work across most of a user’s devices, and even work on other devices within physical proximity.​

They may include:

  • Biometric authentication using Android devices;

  • Touch ID / Face ID using iOS devices;

  • Windows Hello;

  • External security keys (like Hideez Key or YubiKey).

Cross-platform authenticators can be used across different operating systems (Windows, macOS, Android, iOS, etc.). Examples include FIDO security keys (Passkey) and biometric methods like fingerprint or facial recognition, which are supported on a wide range of devices.

Platform authenticators are unique to a specific platform. For example, Windows Hello facial recognition for Windows-based devices and Touch ID for Apple devices.
