Duo + Yubico: Getting Started with WebAuthn

Tuesday, October 29 | 11:30am Central Daylight Time

A few topics we will be discussing:

  • High level understanding of the WebAuthn specification and terminology
  • How WebAuthn registration and login requests are structured and why
  • How to parse and validate Credential Responses
  • What attestation is and when to handle it
  • How WebAuthn and FIDO2 Authentication make a more secure web


Duo Security invites you to join us for a lunch and learn event at Cisco's Bloomington office.

Join Nick Steele, R&D technical leader at Duo Labs, and Guido Appenzeller, Chief Product Officer at Yubico, for an interactive workshop to learn more about the Web Authentication API (also known as WebAuthn). The API allows servers to register and authenticate users with public key cryptography instead of a password.
