The All Things Auth Podcast explores the world of usable security and privacy.

Average internet users should not need a PhD in computer science to understand how to keep their accounts safe, control their data, and make informed decisions online. Unfortunately, this can be a daunting challenge in reality.

In each episode, Conor interviews a guest about the interesting project, service, or company they are working on to help make security and privacy more usable for us all.

Episodes coming soon

# Episode ideas

I am excited to connect with other creators, builders, researchers, and advocates who are working on creative solutions, products, and projects of all kinds that focus on moving usable security and privacy forward.

Want to be a guest on the show? Have a great idea for an episode? Check out the ~300 word Guest Guide to get an idea of what is involved in being a guest and then get in touch at!

Here are some of the ideas on my list:

  • Password managers, such as 1password, LastPass, Dashlane, Keeper, and many others.
  • Multi factor authentication (MFA) focused solutions, such as Authy, Duo, SaasPass, Auth0, Yubico, SecureAuth, FreeOtp and many others.
  • Enterprise identity management solutions, such as Okta, OneLogin.
  • Companies building solutions and products using biometrics.
  • The folks at the FIDO Alliance and others working on auth related specifications to move the industry forward.
  • The creators of the EFF's Surveillance Self Defense project.
  • The editors of Citizen Lab's Security Planner.
  • Academics and general researchers!
  • The Google Security, Privacy & Abuse Research team and many other organizations who have conducted surveys and run studies.
  • Members of the security and privacy teams at any company smart/lucky enough to have such a team!
  • Designers who preach the importance of UX in the context of security.
  • Tech writers who have worked to improve how security concepts are communicated to end-users.
  • Engineers who have built auth solutions that focused not only on the technical implementation, but also prioritized the user experience.
  • Teams who have used customer behavior metrics to improve the security features in their service.
  • ...and countless more that I cannot think of right now.
