Going Global 5: Back in the Pacific Northwest
Login to Google Hangouts authorized by smartphone
To authenticate access to Google Hangouts CloudGate, using FIDO protocols, verifies the login by requiring the user to touch smartphone fingerprint sensor.
After an 11 hour ride from Tokyo, I am at the Seattle Tacoma airport and though it is a late Sunday afternoon here, in Tokyo it is already early Monday morning and I need to join the go-to-market weekly meeting which is about to begin. To access my Google Hangouts account from my PC I must authenticate to CloudGate. After verifying my credentials, CloudGate pings me on my smartphone, I am asked to authorize the login from my PC. I touch the fingerprint sensor on my iPhone and in less than a second I am on my Hangouts account. I click on the video icon and join my colleagues in Tokyo.
