Modern Authentication with FIDO - the Biggest Thing in Security since SSL! presented at BSidesChicago 2018

by Adam Lewis,

Summary : Identity is the new perimeter - but the perimeter is most often a password - responsible for 81% of data breaches in 2016. Current MFA solutions like SMS and other OTP are just as broken, still phishable and suffering from a poor UX. FIDO is one of the most exciting innovations in identity & access management, which for the first time brings a multi-factor authentication standard to the mass market combining military-grade security, awesome UX, privacy, and interoperability - all in a single stack that will soon be baked into the computing platforms we already own.
