Phase 1: Passwordless Authentication is Operational ➲ Complete

Implementing passwordless signup & login is just the beginning, i.e., Phase 1.

27 June 2024 ➲ Breaking News! ... "Passwords R.I.P"

Let's face it, we all hate passwords, not to mention Authenticator Apps!

There is a better way. It's called a Passkey.

Using a Passkey is highly secure, eliminating the need for both a password and an Authenticator App.

You can now register with and login to BLUEOCEAN.law's website using a Passkey.

Passkeys are automatically generated - if required, so you don't need to already have one).

Alternatively, you can use your existing Google | Apple | Microsoft login.

Try it for yourself, the links to signup/login are on the HOME page and under the top menu item ... STAY SECURE.

Why Passkeys are the future of CyberSecurity

The following answer has been extracted from the LinkedIn article by Tertius Wait dated 28 June 2024 called "Say Goodbye to Passwords: Googles New Passkeys Are Here"

"Passkeys represent a robust defense against phishing and other security threats by tying authentication to a physical device specifically authorized by the user. Unlike passwords, which can be easily phished or forgotten, passkeys leverage biometric data or a device-specific PIN that never leaves your device, ensuring both privacy and security.
This approach aligns perfectly with the ISC2's security principle of "something you know, something you have, and something you are."
Traditional passwords are "something you know," easily compromised.
Passkeys combine "something you have" (your device, specifically authorized by you) with "something you are" (biometric data), creating an exceptionally strong and secure authentication method."
With Google's passkeys, the future of online security is not just on the horizon—it is here.
This innovative approach transforms the way we think about logging in, making it easier and infinitely more secure.
By harnessing the power of biometric data and device-specific security features, passkeys provide a seamless and secure experience like never before.
I highly recommend starting to use passkeys today.
They will simplify your life and make your accounts significantly more secure.
Passwords are becoming relics of the past, passkeys are the future.
Embrace this change and step into a more secure and convenient digital world."
