Street Cred: Increasing Trust in User Authentication

Originally aired: Thursday, March 24, 2022

Passwords don't have a great reputation: between user complaints of friction adhering to complex password policies and admin complaints about how frequently lost or stolen passwords pose a risk of attack, few of us are fans. With these password problems and more, it raises the question: why would we still use passwords at all?

In this session, Duo Security Advisory CISO Wolfgang Goerlich will provide a walkthrough of why security leaders want to move past passwords, and the challenges of a truly universal passwordless future. Then, he’ll discuss advances in passwordless technology made to improve security and usability, as well as what to watch for next as passwordless solutions mature.
