What is the future for FIDO2 with respect to the OTT apps and other e-commerce web-sites via the Smart TV interface.

Do we have any support in Andriod TV or WebOS TV ?

Do we know of any organization currently investing in the adaption in the Smart-TV ecosystem as truly passwordless authentication in apps as being utilized in Smart-TV will enable to open new possibilities and also help in widespread usage of the FIDO ecosystem which extends far more than our current scenario where user's on day to day basis can utilize it to have a better and secure Smart home environment.

Hi Nisha,


We have a working group for IoT, more focusing on enablement/onboarding.


There are also whitepapers out there. I don’t know all of them, but there should be one that gives enough input to link devices with limited I/O capabilities to an account secured by FIDO using OAuth2.0 Device Code.


Best regards,



Thomas Duboucher

Agreed. Device code and/or QR-based linking seems to be the well established and mostly secure pattern at this point for consumers.
