Do-It-Yourself password free! – Cryptographic Authentication for Web Apps


Wednesday 4M

Convener: Francisco Corella, Karen Lewinson

Notes-taker(s): Francisco Corella


Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:


The session was a continuation of a demo.


During the session and demo we demonstrated how easy it is to implement cryptographic authentication for web apps using the Pomcor JavaScript Cryptographic Library (PJCL). The library can be used client-side and, if the web app is a Node.js app, server-side, which is convenient for full-stack development.


We played with a sample app, distributed flyers summarizing the registration and login flows, and went over portions of the code. The flyers and the code of the sample app can be found online at https://pomcor.com/pjcl/ .
