Authentication on the Move: Challenges for Mobile Web Applications

Posted on in Presentations

How do you type a complex password on a tiny keyboard while sipping coffee? Most people hate passwords, and they really hate them for mobile web applications. But there are alternatives? In this hands-on session, you will learn not just what the alternatives are for modern cross platform web applications, but also how to implement them and how to avoid and recognize some of their weaknesses.

Pre-Requisites: General understanding of how web applications work, some knowledge of javaskript and html. This session is targeting developers as well as security practitioners who are in charge of protecting web applications and pen testing web applications. Some knowledge of server-side programming language (php, .net, java..) is helpful but not required.
