Authentication is one of the most frustrating parts of using apps and websites, and a serious bottleneck for growth. What if authentication could be reduced to a single tap, without compromising on security?

OpenYOLO is a protocol for credential exchange between apps and the user's credential manager, and it achieves exactly this goal. It is a new OpenID Foundation standard which allows for programmatic access and update of user credentials. It is being fully supported by 1Password, Dashlane, Google, Keeper and LastPass.

In this talk Iain will describe how OpenYOLO works, and share with you examples of how it can be easily integrated into an existing application.
