In this presentation, expert Michael Cobb reviews the shortcomings of a password-based authentication system and explores what we know of the future of authentication. Among the authentication tech he explores are security tokens, biometrics, out-of-band authentication and federated authentication. He also reviews in depth what the Fast Identity Online (FIDO) Alliance is up to.
