Everyone agrees that the current state of online authentication is a mess. Passwords are complicated, hard to remember, and often easy to hack.

How important is multi-factor authentication, and what are some of the risks? How can advances in biometrics help with authentication? In a post-quantum supremacy world, is encryption still safe? How can a new authentication system called SQRL help solve this mess?
