Arne Blankerts | ScotlandPHP |

In March 2019 the W3C released the Level 1 of the recommendation for the new Web Authentication Standard "WebAuthn".

Are you prepared to support the new means of authentication? Get ready for the future and learn what WebAuthn is about, how it works, and how to leverage its potential for your site today using PHP and JavaScript.
