Why WebAuthn matters
Password-based authentication is popular but rife with problems, including poor security; susceptibility to phishing attacks; poor user experience; and needless complexity for IT organizations who have to assign, manage, and reset passwords, and users who have to remember, type, and vary passwords.
WebAuthn, a new web authentication standard recently approved by the W3C, finally offers websites, services, and applications stronger multi-factor authentication that is also user-friendly, as well as the opportunity to move away from password-based authentication altogether.
