“Secure, Quick, Reliable Login” is a proposed technique to replace username/password login, as well as third party logins providers. SQRL (pronounced “squirrel”) provides an extremely user-friendly workflow - the user simply scans a QR code on the page using a dedicated application, verifies that it refers to the correct url, and is then logged into the site. This talk will provide an overview of the challenges with existing user/password login systems, as well as the concerns with third party social network login. We will then describe the properties of SQRL that address these concerns, and describe the cryptographic algorithms that provide those features at a high level. Justin Love is a local Chicago area resident active in both the Ruby and Javascript meetup groups. He is a regular presenter at these and other groups, and has spoken at a number of conferences, including RubyConf and Strange Loop.
