The W3C has announced a new web authentication standard that provides an API for accessing public key credentials. The standard, which is being referred to as WebAuthn, would allow users to log into websites without having to use passwords and instead use authorization gestures on their phones.
Six APIs were added to the ProgrammableWeb directory in categories including Recognition, Background, and Healthcare. Also added are several SDKs for email marketing firm Klaviyo, ecommerce service Whiplash, and one unofficial PHP SDK for the Marvel Comics API. Here's a rundown of the new additions.
