6.12.4 Connecting Using Fast Identity Online (FIDO) Authentication


Support for the authentication_fido pluggin has been deprecated since release 8.2.0

Fast Identity Online (FIDO) authentication enables user authentication for MySQL Server using devices such as smart cards, security keys, and biometric readers. FIDO enables passwordless authentication, and can be used for MySQL accounts that use multifactor authentication. See FIDO Pluggable Authentication for details.

Connector/J supports FIDO authentication. To use the feature, a custom implementation of the com.mysql.cj.callback.MysqlCallbackHandler interface must be created (see the documentation for com.mysql.cj.callback.FidoAuthenticationCallback for details), and the full class name of the implementation must be provided to Connector/J using the connection property authenticationFidoCallbackHandler.
