Implement Passkey's into BigBearAccounts


This project is currently in R&D.


Do any BigBearAccounts use Passkey’s yet on any other site?


Passkeys are a form of passwordless authentication that use public key cryptography for secure, easy logins. They eliminate the need for traditional passwords, instead relying on cryptographic key pairs: a private key stored securely on the user’s device, and a public key kept on the server. When logging in, users authenticate themselves with something they have (the device with the private key) and something they know or are (like a PIN, fingerprint, or facial recognition). This method is highly secure against phishing and replay attacks, and offers a simpler user experience. Adoption is growing, with major tech companies and standards like FIDO and WebAuthn supporting passkeys.
