We were working on a cool project - a passwordless authenticator with OIDC interface and AI-based multiple factors for verification / identification. Got it to an MVP point, but without a strong go-to-market plan. Weren't sure about the timing, shelved it, switched to a more promising project (blockchain). Looking for good go-to-market ideas to possibly revive the project. More info on

This is cool. IIUC the tricky bit is creating a central repository to authenticate a user (based on any one of n authentication methods).

There are quite a few ways you can market it right?

1. Identification/authentication as a service (similar to login with Google).

2. IIRC few physical security companies are interested in solving this problem. So home/building automation is another path.

3. Corporate resource access with a single device which can use card, thumbprint, phone token etc.

Happy to learn more and help if I can :)

The problem you are trying to solve is genuine and with multiple platform/application access, it is getting hard to remember. Solving the problem is one thing but it comes with the cost of security. How can these credentials be secured? With Apple face id, chrome storing password, in a way we are getting a similar outcome, but I get nervous when all my passwords are stored in chrome!

re: how this is different from Apple FaceID - FaceID does nothing to tell the service who the user is - it just verifies that whoever is currently using the device is authorized to be in possession of it.
