Vortrag: Help Keep the Internet Safe with WebAuthn
Account takeovers continue to be part of major cyber security incidents. Decades of password education haven't helped, and probably made things worse. Email and password lists numbering into the billions have shown up on the dark web. Phishing campaigns have become more targeted and more effective than ever. Sometimes it seems like we're losing the battle.
There is hope, though! The WebAuthn protocol provides a stronger, easier way for users to authenticate themselves. It uses secure hardware and asymmetric cryptography to provide a strong addition to passwords, or a complete replacement. Best of all, it's easy to implement, and already supported by services you're using today.
Come to this talk to learn how WebAuthn works, how you can use it to protect yourself, and how to add support to your software. WebAuthn is a powerful tool to help keep the Internet safe, but it's up to us to use it.
