Today EMVCo, the FIDO Alliance and the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) published How EMVCo, FIDO, and W3C Technologies Relate, which explains the roles of the three organizations' technologies. This new educational resource informs payments industry stakeholders on the roles of EMV® Secure Remote Commerce (SRC), EMV® 3-D Secure (3DS), EMV® Payment Tokenisation, FIDO Alliance's FIDO2 specifications, and W3C's Web Authentication and Payment Request APIs, which may be used together to enable more secure and convenient card-based payment during an e-commerce guest checkout on the Web.

The document was published by the Web Payment Security Interest Group, a collaborative industry-led initiative focused on enhancing the interoperability of web payments.

At the Authenticate 2020 Conference on 18 November, representatives from EMVCo, the FIDO Alliance and W3C will participate in a virtual panel session to discuss the document and seek input on it from payments industry stakeholders. The conference is open and free for anyone to attend.
