Mozilla Persona for your domain

A session at LSM / RMLL 2013

Wednesday 10th July, 2013

5:40pm to 6:00pm (WET)

Passwords are a big problem on the Web. Users pick bad ones and re-use them all over the place, developers can't seem to be able to secure them. We need something better, but almost all of the new login systems for the Web rely on centralised gate keepers. We can do better than this.

Persona is a new way of logging users in. It's simple, decentralised and allows users to choose who can vouch for them. It's also designed to provide meaningful privacy to all users regardless of their level of expertise.

This talk will highlight the main features of Persona and introduce the crypto behind its underlying protocol, BrowserID. It will also provide an overview of what organisations can do to support Persona natively on their domains.
