Everyone has a smartphone (in fact, many have more than one). Nobody wants to remember yet another password. Surely the combination of these two mean that the smartphone app is the logical solution to securing authentication and delivering a truly passwordless experience for both employees and customers? Unfortunately, it's not always as simple as that, though. In the ongoing war between convenience and user experience on the one side, and strong security and privacy on the other, we need to ensure that we do not unwittingly create new risks and attack surfaces in our rush to remove passwords.In this session, we'll explore not only the available technologies and approaches making passwordless authentication possible today, but also discuss the real -world challenges involved when moving to such a model and providing a truly trustworthy and secure authentication factor within a mobile app. We'll then look at a number of approaches and patterns that can address these challenges and discuss specific industry examples.
