Time 12/10/19 09:00AM-09:50AM

Room Oak Alley (4th)

Session Abstract

Duke University has integrated its Shibboleth Identity Provider with WebAuthn to allow one-step, passwordless multi-factor authentication.

In this interactive session, we'll discuss the evolution of this pilot, including:

* Initial drivers
* Proof of concept
* Early release
* Iterations, the feedback they generated, and resulting changes

For each phase above, we'll discuss challenges, lessons learned, and policy decisions that helped us move forward. We'll wrap up with recommendations about how to make passwordless authentication a reality at your institution, reserving time for discussion about technical and political challenges and strategies for moving through them.
