Simplify passkey development and create frictionless authentication experiences

Today, Bitwarden announces the general availability of Bitwarden, a developer toolkit that provides an extensive, easy-to-deploy API for integrating FIDO2 WebAuthn-based passkeys into websites and enterprise applications. 

The open source offering saves engineering resources and reduces the complexities of deploying Face ID, fingerprint, and Windows Hello. Bitwarden helps developers bring websites and apps to market with easier and secure logins – with just a few lines of code, developers can create frictionless authentication experiences in minutes, simplifying the passkey deployment process. 

Passkeys make it easy for users to do the right thing 

Passkeys, which use public key cryptography, protect users from phishing attacks and eliminate the need for traditional usernames, passwords, or additional authentication factors. They simplify account registration, allow users to get started with any application effortlessly, and make it easy for everyone to do the right thing when it comes to online security.

Building passkey authentication for customers and employees

Bitwarden customer Lundatech AB, an integration platform based on state-of-the-art security and availability technologies for collecting, structuring, and integrating data for real-time analysis and system interoperability, uses Bitwarden to improve sign-up and login experiences for both customers and employees. 

“Our customers and partners consist of software vendors, large private corporations, and government agencies, all with high security and reliability requirements,” said Lundatech AB CTO and founder Henrik Doverhill. “We wanted to give them better security and a modern, more streamlined authentication experience. Bitwarden trimmed down our development process – within an hour, we had passwordless authentication up and running.” 

Lundatech AB also deployed passkeys logins across internal applications. A seamless authentication flow allowed employees to easily onboard and log into internal applications. 

“With Bitwarden, we rolled out easier logins and secure user authentication. We’ve eliminated tedious password resets and complicated multifactor flows with OTP codes,” said Doverhill. “Our employees save time by being able to access the internal applications they need much more quickly.” 

New functionality: Admin console for passkey administrators

To simplify the admin experience, Bitwarden now includes a new admin console that allows developers to set up their applications, manage user attributes, gain insight into passkey usage, deploy code, and get up and running immediately. 

Create and configure applications, monitor usage, and manage billing within the admin console.
