The first SANE report on passwordless hype

Distracted “A

 

Yesterday I posted this comment - "Remove the army and we will have a stronger national defense" 

I have now found this report, which is probably the first SANE article that I have ever come across on tech media about passwordless authentication - “Don't believe the passwordless hype”  https://internetofthingsagenda.techtarget.com/post/Dont-believe-the-passwordless-hype

I would have been happier if the writer had mentioned "the security of these accounts is really lower than that of the password due to the increased attack surface" instead of "This means that the security of these accounts is really only as good as the password".

As for the increased attack surface, please refer to “Negative Security Effect of Biometrics Deployed in Cyberspace” at https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/negative-security-effect-biometrics-deployed-hitoshi-kokumai/

For the true effect of removal of passwords, here is “Removal of Passwords and Its Security Effect” https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/removal-passwords-its-security-effect-hitoshi-kokumai/
