About the Author

This site is maintained by Dirk Balfanz, a software engineer at Google's Security Team. While Dirk is working on stronger authentication at Google, this site is not an official Google site, and should not be construed as providing information about future Google products and services.

Googlers and non-Googlers have provided feedback (and often more than feedback!) for the proposals documented on this site. The goal is to document best practices and, where appropriate, new standards around stronger web authentication.
