The video on-demand of this session is available to logged in QCon attendees only. Please login to your QCon account to watch the session.

What if users can create an account and log into your application without ever having to enter a password? For example, if a new user accesses your application from an iPhone they can create a new account and login using FaceId. This talk provides an overview of the Web Authentication protocol which is widely implemented in modern browsers and enables secure user-friendly authentication processes. We will demonstrate the protocol using a sample Spring Security-based application.
