First off, why I said this was episode 42 is beyond me. Today we are joined by John Salter of Yubico and Board Member of the FIDO Alliance to tell us what is going on with passwords, two factor authentication, and the future of authentication. Turns out passwords will be replaced with PIN codes, and 2FA will be replaced by U2F (universal two factor).
John does a live demo (that you should watch on youtube) that shows us how this works.
Finally we talk about the need for the FIDO Alliance, and why this is a huge step forward for the web.
