WebAuthn - A Practical Introduction
Our online existence is built on Passwords. Often a password is all that lies between a hacker and our online accounts and sensitive data.
Users have to worry about passwords being stolen by phishing tools, or being leaked online if the website is compromised. Developers have to worry about securely storing and passing passwords through systems.
But, there is a better way forward, Public Key Cryptography & Web Authentication aka WebAuthn. In this session, we will learn what is WebAuthn and how it can be implemented for Strong, Scoped, and Attested authentication on the web.
We will build a web application (and its server counterpart) to authenticate a user using the hardware authentication systems like TouchID and FaceID.
