The State of Authentication

Marcos Caceres Platform Engineer Mozilla

Im addition to naming things and cache invalidation, add authentication to the list of the hardest problems in computer science (come to think of it authentication basically combines those two).

In this session Marcos Carceres looks at the current state of authentication on the Web, and in particular Web Authentication, an effort to standardise web based authentication.
