The industry plan to get rid of passwords


Slowly but surely, we are getting closer to the end of passwords. The FIDO alliance, which brings together many players working on new authentication methods, has presented a concept which it believes will be the first to be ” able to replace passwords as the dominant form of internet authentication “.

The association believes that while physical security keys (such as YubiKey products) are a step towards a secure approach and do not require you to remember a series of characters, their adoption by the general public is limited for two reasons. First, it’s not really practical on a daily basis for the average user. Second, it is still necessary to enter your password in certain cases, for example when connecting to a site from a new device. To solve this problem, the alliance has an idea: to use the smartphone as a security key.
