HUAWEI FIDO Makes Account Sign-in Easier and More Secure

Search This thread


Mar 2, 2021
Together with the HUAWEI ID that provides an easy and secure sign-in and authorization function for more than 1 billion users to access apps after signing in to a phone, tablet, or smart TV with a HUAWEI ID, FIDO endows the HUAWEI ID with more secure and convenient identity authentication capabilities.


Conventionally, users need to sign in to their HUAWEI IDs by entering their IDs and passwords, which is time-consuming and inconvenient. To facilitate sign-in, the HUAWEI ID gradually offers multiple authentication modes to serve users with different needs. FIDO provides the password-free fingerprint and facial authentication capabilities, which frees users from the hassle of traditional password-based sign-in, as well as prevent the risk for password leakage. In addition, the system integrity check and key verification mechanism are used to ensure that the authentication results are secure and reliable, and 3D facial recognition makes facial authentication more accurate.

What Does FIDO Bring to the Table?​

FIDO provides your app with the FIDO2 client. You can build a secure and easy-to-use password-free authentication capability in your app by using FIDO2 and a third-party FIDO server.

FIDO is a comprehensive authentication framework launched by the FIDO Alliance in compliance with the European GDPR regulations and uses the system integrity check result as the prerequisite for authentication. As such, before performing sign-in authentication, FIDO will call SysIntegrity to check whether the device system has been maliciously tampered with (for example, whether the device is rooted) to ensure that the user can sign in to their HUAWEI ID on a secure device.

Specifically, once a user enables fingerprint or facial authentication after signing in to their HUAWEI ID on their device, they can quickly sign in through fingerprint or facial authentication. This simplifies complex authentication for repeated sign-ins on the same device. If SysIntegrity detects that the user's device is rooted, the message "Your device has been rooted. Continuing to use HUAWEI ID may pose a security risk." will be displayed on the device to notify the user, thus safeguarding user sign-in security.
