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.

On the Security and Privacy of Risk-based Authentication

Risk-based Authentication (RBA) is recommended by NIST (USA) and NCSC (UK) to strengthen password-based authentication against attacks involving stolen passwords, like credential stuffing or password spraying. Large online services already deployed RBA to protect their user base*. Beyond that, users find RBA more usable than 2FA, and equally secure#.

But what about its usability, security, and privacy in practice? We studied RBA on a real-world online service for almost two years to find out more. And yes, we can create a strong, usable, and still more privacy-friendly RBA that complies with the GDPR and CCPA.
