Who are you anyways ?

The last 10 years have yielded many lessons about the problem space in web authentication for consumer services, the most important one being that it is not one problem space, but three: how to strengthen the intial authentication while keeping it usable, how to recover in case the authentication credentials are compromised, and how to succesfully notify users about important events. The talk will cover our current understanding of these issues, near future ideas, and some interesting areas for investigation.
