User logins: can we do better than passwords and avoid centralized services?

A session at FISL 14

Friday 5th July, 2013

10:00am to 11:00am (LMT)

Websites that need to identify their users commonly use one of two methods: a username & password scheme that's hard to secure and creates a lot of pain for users, or a centralized proprietary service on which many of their users already have accounts.

There must a better way. A cross-browser solution for authenticating users which feels like the Web and preserves the decentralized architecture necessary for an open network. We present Mozilla Persona.
