FIDO2 integration prerequisites

Before you can start, you need to have the following information available:

Relying party

Before you can integrate WebAuthn, provide the following information about your web application, the relying party:

Relying party name: The name of your choosing, for example: Siven Chocolate Factory.

Relying party ID: The domain or part of the domains of your web applications that you plan to register and authenticate users on, for example: siven.ch.

Origins: The list of the origins of your web application. Each origin has to be explicitly allowed, for example:

  • https://www.siven.ch
  • https://login.siven.ch:9443
  • https://sso.login.siven.ch

As WebAuthn can only be used from a secure context, the origins have to be one of the following:

  • A local address: http://localhost.
  • An https:// address on condition that the application provides a valid SSL certificate.
info

The Relying party ID has to be a subset of all the origins you intend to use.

For example, the siven.ch Relying party ID matches the https://login.siven.ch:9443 origin, but not the https//bank.ch/ origin.

Contact Nevis support with the relying party information so that we can configure your Authentication Cloud instance.
