re: Kill Passwords: Hassle-Free Substitute Wanted
Getting all these entities to collaborate does sound like a long shot. Still, the idea of being able to authenticate users with whatever is at hand is a great idea. Perhaps there will be a way that innovative vendors will enable this kind of technology to gradually catch on, while bypassing a broad high-level collaboration between government institutions and others. In any case, there really has to be a better way than having to remember a multitude of passwords and answering the same types of security questions (which often do not seem secure at all) when you forget a password.

re: Kill Passwords: Hassle-Free Substitute Wanted
Unfortunately, if FIDO really does require technology, financial services, and governments to cooperate to enable a password-free system, I don't think it will work out smoothly and efficiently. When government has to be involved in anything, it is a hurry up and wait situation. The only way I see large-scale cooperation occurring is if there is regulation enacting it, and if that is the case, it will be many years before this is put into place.
