We’re thrilled to have Jan Bakker, a seasoned Cloud Consultant with over 10 years of IT experience, joining us from the Netherlands. In this episode, Andy and Jan explore the revolutionary concept of passkeys, a technology that aims to replace traditional passwords and enhance security by providing phishing resistance. The conversation delves into the significance of passkeys and their value in improving user experience and security measures. The guys even discuss what is currently known publicly about passkeys in M365. 

Key takeaways 

  • Passkeys offer a more secure and user-friendly alternative to traditional passwords by eliminating the need for storing secrets on the server side. 

  • Public key cryptography forms the foundation of passkeys, ensuring strong authentication without the risk of password breaches. 

  • Passkeys provide phishing resistance and streamline the authentication process for end users, reducing the reliance on complex passwords and additional MFA steps. 

  • While passkeys offer significant security benefits, they are not a standalone solution and should be complemented with other security measures such as phishing prevention and identity protection strategies.
