Techceleration and Identity Assurance

“How covid-19 is boosting innovation” | The Economist https://films.economist.com/nowandnext/#ideas-now?utm_source=Economist_Newsletter&utm_medium=Editors_Picks&utm_campaign=Now&Next_Newsletter

Without solid identity assurance, many of those cyber-centric innovations taken up in this video would end up as pipedream.

Conventional text-passwords are obviously unable to meet the need, but it does not mean 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.

In the post-pandemic techceleration age do we desperately need ever more reliable identity assurance. Can we afford to continue to think light of the potential of ‘non-text’ secret credentials?
