Cybersecurity: Who needs Passwords?
Passwords have been the dominant mechanism for user authentication over the past few decades. Many contend that we are at a window of opportunity for a better authentication method to finally replace text passwords and PIN-based authentication, which have created or facilitated numerous security vulnerabilities for decades. In this talk, we discuss emerging alternatives for user authentication and discuss their advantages and disadvantages over conventional password-based authentication.
