Aiming to Destroy Democracy?

Aiming to Destroy Democracy?USER > > 3 > % X % X<br />

Here is a report with an eye-catching title - "Passwordless authentication: The future is  here"   https://www.itproportal.com/features/passwordless-authentication-the-future-is-here/

I wonder if they are aware of what they mean by what they say.

Democracy in Peril of Destruction - A society where identity authentication is allowed to happen without users’ volition involved would be the society where democracy is dead. It’s a tyrant’s utopia.

Democracy must require the individuals to have the rights not to get their identity authenticated without their knowingly confirming it. This volitional process can be achieved only with volitional identity authentication made possible by memorized secrets, i.e., the likes of passwords.

Moreover, on top of being a grave threat to democracy, removal of secret credentials would bring a catastrophic collapse of digital identity security as we repeatedly discuss as in “Bizarre Theory of Password-less Authentication”


Do those people really believe that removing a weak army would make the national defense stronger?

'The future is here' to destroy both democracy and security, isn't it?

What on earth are they doing?

Does the key authenticate<br />
the person who holds it?
