We Don’t Need No Stinking Passwords

The username and password have been the standard secure way to log into software seemingly since the dawn of time. Developers don’t like building and managing password-based auth and users don’t like having to create endless passwords. But new methods of handling passwordless authentication have emerged in recent years to upend this model. In this session, Vinicius Campitelli will show us options for passwordless authentication and how to get started.

We Don’t Need No Stinking Passwords

Passwords are like underwear. You should change them regularly, and you shouldn’t share them with anyone.

Passwords are a pain. They’re hard to remember, they’re easy to crack, and they’re a major security risk. So why do we still use them?

In this presentation, we’ll argue that we don’t need passwords anymore. We’ll explore a variety of passwordless authentication methods, and we’ll show how they can be more secure, more convenient, and more user-friendly than passwords.

We’ll also discuss the challenges of implementing passwordless authentication, and we’ll offer some tips for getting started.

So come join us for a presentation that will make you say, “We don’t need no stinking passwords!
