FIDO Credential Management

vSEC:CMS version 6.3 includes lifecycle management of FIDO credentials. With vSEC:CMS, FIDO user credentials can automatically be enrolled and managed in Identity Providers (IdP). Thereby providing your cloud and enterprise Service Providers (SP) strong authentication of your users.


Versasec’s vSEC:CMS v6.3 customers can now manage integrated FIDO credentials with their vSEC:CMS deployments.

Benefits of a centralized FIDO credential management:

  • FIDO credential management
  • Lifecycle management of FIDO credentials including issuance and revocation
  • Single pane of glass management of PKI and FIDO user device traceability
  • Improve user experience
  • Increase security and simplified onboarding administration, by using the same vetting and onboarding process

By offering FIDO management together with PKI management, Versasec brings the best of two worlds into one solution taking the management of FIDO security devices to the next level.
