FIDO Certified Professional (FCP)

Coordinated through Professional Testing (PTI)

Designed to formally recognize the knowledge of authentication, identity, and security professionals, this program aims to increase the number of experts available, to support companies implementing stronger authentication solutions.

A FIDO Certified Professional is an identity and authentication expert who helps organizations deploy and integrate FIDO standards by analyzing business requirements and delivering an ad hoc architecture that ensures secure authentication processes. The FIDO Certified Professional program complements the Alliance's range of FIDO certification programs, including functional, security and biometric certification.
