A world without passwords!

You might have read my post about the 127 character password but do not tell the user. Things move fast. Now there is the FIDO alliance, a new group that creates standards for device and user authentication without the user remembering passwords. They are utilizing different authentication factors like biometrics or the Trusted Platform Module. Using different factors is very conveiniant (use what is available for a user) and enables also authentication "weighing". E.g. an authentication with the TPM (security hardware) is better than a fingerprint scan (easier to spoof).

Multifactor authentication with the user in control! FIDO will present on Thursday February 21st. Read more about FIDO here.
