WebAuthn: Passwords are legacy!

Arne Blankerts | International PHP Conference |

In March 2018, the haveibeenpwned.com password database contained about 501 Million hashes of known, stolen passwords. Yet, despite the fact companies obviously fail to securely store passwords and despite the majority of users still reusing a limited set of passwords for their online accounts, passwords are the predominant means of authentication.

Get ready for the future and learn what WebAuthn is about, how you can use and implement it for your site today.
