Gist: The perception, that conventional text-passwords are obviously unable to meet the requirement of digital identity in the post-pandemic techceleration age, does not lead us to such misguided arguments that ‘password-dependent password-less authentication’ and ‘password-dependent password-killer biometrics’ are valid solutions. These delusive concepts would only bring catastrophic disasters to security and democracy.

Shall we start from these observations? — No safe and orderly societal life would exist without solid identity assurance. No solid identity assurance would exist without solid secret credential for identity authentication, whereas the text-password as a conventional secret credential is no longer manageable. Then, we will naturally get to the view that we could and should look to ‘Non-Text’ secret credential.

Can we afford to make light of this discussion?
