Journey To A Passwordless World

The industry has finally reached the tipping point of being ready to talk about truly passwordless technology and now actually has a way of getting there, according to Jim Ducharme, vice president of identity and fraud and risk intelligence for RSA Security.

But the initial spike in passwordless tools has neither reduced security risks nor lowered help desk costs since users are still required to enter their password from time to time and are more likely to forget it since they’re using it less often, Ducharme said. Nowadays, if people forget their passwords, a weaker mechanism is used to verify their identity such as entering their mother’s maiden name, Ducharme said.

A more secure enrollment and recovery process would enlist a trust mechanism between two people where, for instance, a person who forgets their token can only re-enroll once they receive an invitation with a QR code from a trusted third party such as a colleague, according to Ducharme. Identity confidence scoring can also protect higher-risk applications by banning unapproved temporary access.
