Feitian ePass FIDO® - NFC is a FIDO alliance certified U2F authentication key. Unlike the traditional second factor authentication devices, FIDO U2F provides a much more convenient solution to replace or be a plus of traditional password.
In order to authenticate users, web applications often store user passwords. This can be tricky, because password storage mechanisms are a watering hole for bad advice: there are several solutions to this problem but very few are truly secure. If you store the passwords of your users, your goal should be to make sure that in the event of a data compromise, user passwords should remain safe. The best way to store users passwords is to use a password-based key derivation function (PBKDF) with a sufficient work factor. If your application does not leverage a PBKDF, you should migrate password storage schemes immedietely. More on this later.
