Talk: React User Authentication for Self-Sovereign Identity with Magic
Managing user identities for authentication and authorization are serious responsibilities. In an age of ever-increasing cybersecurity threats, more and more software companies are shying away from undertaking these high levels of responsibility and liability.
In this talk, we’ll see how to build a user authentication system in react using magic, where magic provides a key-based identity solution built on top of the Decentralized Identity (DID) standard, where users’ identities are self-sovereign by leveraging blockchain public-private key pairs. These key pairs are used to generate zero-knowledge proofs to authenticate users instead of having to rely on users providing passwords to Magic or any identity provider.
