Open Source Authentication with Advait Ruia and Rishabh Poddar

Passwordless Authentication is a technique in which users are given access to an environment without entering a password or answering a security question. This allows users to access an environment securely and protects organizations against attack vectors like Keylogging, Brute force methods, and phishing. The company SuperTokens provides secure login and session management for your apps in an open-core model.

In this episode, we interviewed Advait Ruia and Rishabh Poddar from SuperTokens. We discussed Open source authentication, security considerations for Authentication, recipes for Authentication, and the future of passwords.
