Passkeys authentication

Passkeys are starting to get traction as a great replacement for passwords. Capitally relies on passwords to make the data encryption both convenient and secure.

There’s a standard’s extension that allows to embed an encryption key within the Passkey. If it’s supported by sensible amount of authentication devices, it would enable Capitally to use the passkey both for account authentication and project encryption.

As passkey authentication is fast and easy to do, one could easily opt for not storing the encryption key in the browser, making it a very safe and convenient option to encrypt the project.

In the same way, they could also be used to encrypt the projects themselves - Google, regular password or even another passkey can be used to login, while a separate passkeys protects the encryption key.
