Street Cred: Increasing Trust in Passwordless Authentication

Abstract:

Good security gets out of the way of users while getting in the way of adversaries. Passwords fail on both accounts. What holds us back from getting rid of passwords? Trust. In this session, we will propose a framework of technical controls to ensure only trusted sessions authenticate, regardless of faults or failures in any one factor. We will share a path forward for increasing trust in passwordless authentication.
