Building secure web experiences with Passwordless Authentication

Matthew Kairys Software Engineer DiUS Computing

Without question, passwords have failed us time and time again. Data breaches and phishing attacks are on the rise and studies consistently show they are often the result of weak and/or stolen passwords. With the recent standardisation of Web Authentication by W3C, developers can now give users and businesses more options to protect themselves on the web.

In this talk, we’ll examine how developers can use the Web Authentication API to build secure user experiences in web apps using passwordless authentication. We’ll review best practices and integration challenges and demonstrate how you can put this into practice today.
