  • ASP.NET Core Identity Considered Harmful

    “Ladies and gentlemen…. ASP.NET!” The crowd goes wild. The presenter, on stage, has just scaffolded out a fully-functional TODO list application using nothing but the .NET Core command-line interface and a series of templates. The demo has everything the application needs: persistent storage via the Entity Framework Core libraries, a snazzy interface courtesy of Bootstrap CSS, and there’s even a set of pages and tables for managing user logins and passwords, which the presenter called “ASP.NET Core Identity”. It’s awesome! It’s amazing! It’s the new frontier in .NET development, and you got to see it, live!

    Unless you use two-factor authentication (2FA) with your password logins, you’re prone to cyberattacks. This is where Web Authentication (WebAuthn) can help.

    WebAuthn is an authentication standard that uses asymmetric cryptographic keys to authenticate users instead of passwords, mitigating cyberattacks. With WebAuthn, users can authenticate using their devices (with biometrics) without having to remember their passwords, store them, or worry about them getting compromised. The WebAuthn credentials are also known as “passkeys”.
