  • How WebAuthn goes beyond the limitations of passwords while improving security and usability


  • Use cases for implementing WebAuthn to provide fast, easy, and secure authentication


  • How WebAuthn works with a high-level technical discussion


  • The benefits of a hardware security key as a portable root of trust, including account recovery; high-risk or high-value transactions; and more
