Uncovering Passwordless Web with Passkeys

by Maximiliano Firtman Twitter @firt About Newsletter

During Build Stuff 2023 in Vilnius 🇱🇹 I delivered this talk about Passwordless authentication using Passkeys

Most websites have a login form asking for a password; we've created these forms for 30 years, but it's time to replace them. Most browsers support today's new passwordless authentication mechanisms to improve your web apps' security and user experience.

This session will show how to authenticate users with the WebAuthn and Credential Management API with JavaScript while covering how your backend structure must be upgraded to support it. We will also see live examples, including using the new Passkey standard spec.

If you have ever wondered how to add FaceID, TouchID, Windows Hello, or Android biometric authentication to your website, this session is for you!
