Passwords are like secrets. Like any secret, they’re not worth much if they get out, especially when they can be used to compromise your digital identity. Unfortunately, the way authentication is handled today requires users to share their secrets with dozens of online services and applications. And even more unfortunately, those secrets inevitably don’t stay secret since properly storing and protecting huge collections of valuable passwords is hard.
Our new video on Trustless Authentication outlines this problem and explains how businesses can use NuID to authenticate users without having to store or manage passwords. You can also learn a lot more about the current “shared secret” model and the new paradigm of Trustless Authentication in this blog post.
