We all know passwords are not fit for purpose, and we’re slowly making our way to a “post-password” world. Passwords are a problem for security, convenience, and accessibility, and the future of authentication won’t involve passwords at all.

There are already many options available to take passwords out of the picture for your authentication scenarios. We’re all used to our phones and computers letting us login with our faces or fingers, and organisations like the FIDO alliance are building the foundations of the password-free future.

By using existing and well-established technologies, we can provide secure, convenient, passwordless authentication for our users. In fact, in many cases, a password is the worst possible option. Not every interaction has a keyboard or biometric sensor available, and many don’t even involve a user at all.

In this talk, Matt Goldman gives us a glimpse of the future, showing how developers can use familiar technologies to minimise, or even eradicate, the use of passwords, paving the way for safe, secure, and seamless authentication using the technology already in our hands.
