Communications of the ACM: Passkeys unlock a new era for authentication

Until recently, replacing passwords has ranked somewhere between tricky and impossible. Passkeys completely eliminate passwords, and while they won’t end cyberattacks, they represent a far more convenient and secure framework to navigate the digital world. “Legacy frameworks, including some forms of two-factor authentication, depend on a human-readable and shared secret. This makes them highly susceptible to attack and relatively easy to bypass,” explains Andrew Shikiar, executive director of the FIDO Alliance.
