Internetdagarna 2021 har redan varit

A conference that’s all about passwords, PIN codes, and digital authentication. Passwords are the most prevalent form of authentication in the digital age.

PasswordsCon is the first and only conference of its kind, where leading researchers, password crackers, and experts in password security from around the globe gather in order to better understand the challenges surrounding digital authentication, and how to adequately address them.

While large mainstream conferences tend to focus on current hot topics in the information security industry, PasswordsCon events explore fringe conversations on everything from analysis and education to creating, securing, cracking, and exploiting authentication solutions. And unlike other events where the speaker is rushed in and out, PasswordsCon provides an intimate environment for participants to directly engage speakers before, during, and after their presentations.

Account Recovery for Passwordless FIDO2: Which mechanisms are promising?

Passwordless FIDO2 seems to be a promising solution to replace passwords completely, eliminating attacks like Phishing or Credential Stuffing. As with real door locks, users can only access their online account by inserting the correct FIDO2 physical key into the computer or holding it up to the smartphone.

But what happens if we lose our security key? We compared 12 procedures for account recovery in the case of passwordless FIDO2 authentication. The results show that there is still a lot to do.
