Re: Fake website detection?
It feels to me that a fake website can a) not use data from the key to do a login to the actual site, but b) can fool me into thinking everything is fine and try to collect personal information, until I realize something is amis. I think the loop needing closing here is that my action to insert the key should cause the browser to give feedback that "site did not authenticate to any key pair, so are you sure this site is legit?"

Re: Fake website detection?
When you register your FIDO device with a web site, the device creates an origin-specific key pair. Those keys are bound to that origin (e.g. www.darkreading.com). If a hacker attempts to divert your session to a different web site the key wil not recognize that site as being associated with your key pair, and will not issue a signature (i.e. authentication fails). This origin concept is key to FIDO's privacy assurances.

Fake website detection?
If I accidentally end up at fake-google.com, can fido2 help me realize that? I stick in my key, the site says everything is fine, but the key didn't do anything. How do I recognize this? Thanks.

This report - a compilation of cutting-edge Black Hat research, in-depth Omdia analysis, and comprehensive Dark Reading reporting - explores how cloud security is rapidly evolving.
