The FIDO2 Web Authentication (WebAuthn) is a new generation technology and a more reliable way of online authentication developed by FIDO Alliance and standardized by the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium ) recently in 2019.
WebAuthn technology allows to eliminate the risks that arise from providing passwords to emails or phones and allows people to use a fingerprint or hardware security key instead of password.
Thanks to Webauthn for Confluence add-on developed by Alpha Serve passwordless authentication is now possible for Confluence users. A hardware security key and biometric on the authenticator can be used together. Several credentials can be registered for each user's convenience.
