Passwords are so 1990!

As long as we’ve been using the internet, and way before that, we have been authenticating through some sort of username and password combination. It has become the standard. With the ever-increasing number of web-apps, we’re seeing more and more data breaches as well. What if we could build our authentication processes in a way the user doesn’t need a password? Description In this talk, I will give a quick overview of the past, present, and future of authentication. From basic authentication to passwordless biometric authentication using the web authentication API, and everything in between. The audience does not need any specific knowledge as this talk will not go into implementation details but aims to give a view of what’s to come in terms of authentication. Why Authentication is one of the fundamentals of modern applications. We still rely on a system of passwords that has been used since the Roman empire. If we could eliminate the weakest part of the authentication process, the password, we might be able to make it more secure.

Senior Developer Advocate Engineer, Auth0 | Belgium

I'm a Google Developer Expert who works as a Senior Developer Advocate Engineer at Auth0. At Auth0 we're trying to make authentication and identification as easy as possible, while still keeping it secure. After office hours I like to play around with the web-audio API, and other "exotic" browser APIs. One of my side projects is a library to add audio effects to an audio input using JavaScript.
