KEY-ID FIDO2 key with Windows Hello
Why choose this product?
Passwordless access to Windows plus secure access to multiple cloud services
Easy issuance and natively supported integration with existing IT infrastructure makes the KEY-ID FIDO2 key with Windows Hello ideal for enterprise deployments. In addition to Windows 10 login, these authenticators also provide phishing resistant and streamlined sign in to multiple popular cloud services that support the FIDO2 Webauthn standard.
Native Windows 10 support for passwordless login – Windows Hello
These Windows Hello compatible devices allow users to set-up passwordless login on their specific Windows 10 machine, with fingerprint recognition for Windows Hello.
Roaming passwordless Windows logon - FIDO2 on Windows 10 joined to Azure AD
Microsoft also supports FIDO2 passwordless login for Windows 10 with Azure AD. FIDO2 passwordless login allows roaming users to authenticate on any chosen Window 10 machine without having to set up Windows Hello.
Secure, convenient & reliable fingerprint recognition
Large high resolution fingerprint reader gives one-touch recognition, for a finger touch from any direction.
The convenience of a very low level False Rejection Rate (FRR <1%) and the security of a minimal False Acceptance Rate (FAR 0.00001%).
Secure storage of biometric fingerprint data within the device.
Secure access to multiple cloud services - FIDO2 (WebAuthn)
FIDO secure sign in standards are widely supported by many popular cloud services, and protect against phishing and man-in-the-middle attacks.
The FIDO2 WebAuthn standard is approved by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) and enables authentication without storing passwords on servers.

Software utility for fingerprint and PIN set up
The KEY-ID FIDO2 key with Windows Hello supports biometric fingerprint verification for FIDO2 authenticated sign in. (Note: fingerprint enrolment for Windows Hello uses native Windows 10 functionality without requiring this software).
You will need to download and run the EzFinger2 Bio Manager utility to register fingerprints and set a PIN for use with FIDO2 services:
Using FIDO2 services without registering fingerprints
Some cloud services that support FIDO2 may allow you to sign-in using only the presence of your security key as an addition authentication factor (similar to the secure authentication used by the previous FIDO U2F standard), so when the key’s LED indicates that a touch on the sensor is required, the touch of any finger is sufficient.
If you have registered one (or more) of your fingerprints on your security key, and the FIDO2 service supports biometrically verified, or passwordless, FIDO2 sign in, only registered fingerprints will then work.
