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?
