How does the login process remain secure?

For many years, a hot topic in computer security research has been the removal of passwords from Internet login procedures. Using passwords raises many security concerns.

PASSWORDS ARE NOT AS PROTECTED AS YOU THINK.

Passwords are the most popular type of authentication. However, in practice and application, they are the least effective form of authentication.

Safety and accountability are closely linked. Organizations must have strong authentication systems to prevent and deny access based on a user’s permissions in order to hold a person accountable for their actions.

AN EXTREMELY HIGH NUMBER OF REAL-WORLD PASSWORDS HAVE BEEN HACKED.

Hackers know a lot about general password rules, guidelines, and selections. This understanding of how we choose passwords as computer and Internet users makes password cracking easier and faster.

Hackers have breached thousands of well-known corporate networks and online services. Many of these compromises gave hackers immediate or delayed access to user passwords.

PASSWORDLESS authentication is the new era:

Due to the security and user-friendliness of the process, passwordless authentication offers businesses and IT management teams a different option for identity verification. It is typically used in conjunction with other authentication procedures such as multi-factor authentication (MFA) or single sign-on (SSO), and it is quickly replacing conventional username and password methods in terms of of popularity.

Despite the fact that millions of dollars are spent on authentication, users in many organizations and institutions still use passwords to access their systems and applications. This prevents hackers from stealing these credentials, as traditional MFA products still rely on passwords. Deploying a solid connection strategy capable of strengthening security has therefore become crucial for organizations.

Passwordless MFA is known as passwordless authentication. Instead, it uses biometric authentication, cryptographic keys, and other types of authentication factors commonly supported by existing devices.

Passwordless authentication strengthens organizational security by removing the risk of compromised credentials by eliminating the previous reliance on security credentials (usernames and passwords). Moving to passwords means being able to validate a user’s identity without using passwords. This is the cybersecurity of the future.

The Future of Biometric Security in the Quantum Age:

According to the research, a card-based biometric system eliminates limitations and provides governments, businesses and individuals with a powerful way to verify their identity online and offline. This solution involves placing a fingerprint reader on a board that functions like a microcomputer, has its own operating system and can be expanded in terms of use by adding built-in applications. Users tap the card while pressing their thumb or finger on the reader to log into a website or unlock a door. The on-board computer verifies their printout and securely transmits the encrypted verification to the device, so that very little data is exchanged between the two.

Biometric security must be built into any new security system from the start, because quantum computers could destroy even the most advanced cryptography used to protect them.

To facilitate a seamless transition to encryption infrastructure in the era of quantum computing, organizations anticipate being able to develop technology to post-quantum cryptography to add to smart card systems and advance crypto adoption. At JISA Softech, we will keep moving forward from the beginning post-quantum cryptography adoption in order to build and maintain a foundation for safe and secure transmission of information.
