TechXchange Conference 2023 - The future is Passwordless with Fido and Passkeys

By Philip Nye posted Wed August 23, 2023 08:29 PM


At the IBM TechXChange event in September, I’ll have the pleasure of presenting on a range of different topics across Access Management at the TechXchange conference in Las Vegas. The first in my set of presentations is on Passkeys. Join me for what will be my favorite session delving into the world of securing online interactions. I hope to hold an insightful exploration of the history, current landscape, and future trajectory of web authentication technology.

Full Abstract of the session is as follows:

In this session, you will explore the history and current landscape of web authentication, from the early days of basic-auth through to current multi-factor and password-less authentication technologies. The advantages and risks associated with various technologies will be discussed, both from UX and security perspectives. Special attention will be given to passkeys - aka FIDO authentication, and why this phishing-resistant technology is being lauded as the future of strong authentication. A demonstration will be provided of the very latest thinking from the standards community. Packed full of real-world demonstrations, this insightful presentation about the future of the login process will leave attendees with much to consider about the planning and design of web portals of the future.

Drawing on a range of material from SMEs across IBM and the broader Passkey community, I’ll share with you why this phishing-resistant technology is being heralded as the beacon guiding us towards the future of robust authentication. It will be demonstration heavy, and highly interactive. 

Whether you're a security enthusiast, a web developer, or simply someone intrigued by the dynamic landscape of online security, this session offers something valuable for everyone.

Don't miss out on this chance to be part of a forward-looking discourse that could shape the way we secure our digital interactions. Join me at the IBM TechXchange and together, let's build the future of web authentication!
