FIDO Alliance announces Authenticate 2023 Conference

March 1, 2023
The authentication conference returns to California for its fourth year and the call for speakers is open.

The FIDO Alliance is pleased to announce the return of Authenticate, the only industry conference dedicated to all aspects of user authentication – including a focus on FIDO-based sign-ins.

Authenticate 2023, featuring signature sponsors Google, Microsoft and Yubico, will be held Oct. 16-18, 2023 at the Omni La Costa Resort & Spa in Carlsbad, Calif., just north of San Diego. Visit our website for information on submitting a speaking proposal and becoming a sponsor.

Aimed at CISOs, security strategists, enterprise architects, and product and business leaders, this is the fourth consecutive year that the FIDO Alliance is hosting the public conference. The annual event is specifically designed to share education, tools, and best practices for modern authentication across web, enterprise, and government applications.

Last year's conference sold out for in-person attendance, welcoming over 950 total attendees in Seattle and remotely. The event featured more than 100 sessions with highly engaging content, plus a sold-out exhibit area with 30 industry-leading exhibitors and sponsors.

Authenticate 2023 will build upon this strong foundation and feature detailed case studies, technical tutorials, expert panels, and hands-on lab sessions aimed at helping educate attendees on business drivers, technical considerations, and overall best practices for deploying modern authentication systems. Attendees also benefit from a dynamic expo hall and engaging networking opportunities.

Authenticate Call For Speakers

The Authenticate 2023 conference program committee has opened its call for speakers. Authenticate provides speakers with an opportunity to increase their industry reach and visibility by educating attendees on in-market approaches for deploying modern authentication solutions. 

The committee is looking for vendor-neutral, educational presentations that focus on authentication strategies and best practices. Submissions can span all aspects of authentication implementations from initial research and business case development through piloting to rollout and beyond.

Perspectives on global trends and considerations for user authentication should also be submitted. The committee is looking for a variety of session types and formats including main stage storytelling, introductory "101's", detailed case studies, technical tutorials, hands-on labs, and thought provoking panels.

Diverse, global perspectives and presentations that focus on the following topic areas are welcome:

  • Authentication trends and insights
  • Modern authentication case studies & implementation strategy
  • Hands-on implementation guidance and best practices
  • Government impact on authentication

Other topic areas related to authentication will also be considered. Submissions that are uniqueexpertise-driven, and reflect diversity in speakers are most likely to be accepted. Product and sales pitches will not be accepted.

The Authenticate call for speakers closes on March 31, 2023. To submit an application, please visit
