My1s Blog Transparency Policy

Today you get a meta post about how I handle stuff on here. So I like to talk about my opinion about stuff I think might be interesting, some may say "review" but I am not sure whether my ramblings are professional enough for that. anyway I sometimes get stuff for free and often talk about them, so it might be useful to state how I do stuff so stuff is nice and transparent.

Solo V2 Pre-Production First Impression

Today is the end of "claims" but rather a full on as-is review. So as already announced on Twitter, I got hand on a few things and the first one that will get a more or less in-depth review is the Solokeys Solo V2.

As the heading already says, I got Webauthn Working on PC ...

Webauthn's userVerification:preferred and its Pitfalls

Webauthn is a beauty. A relatively easy to implement way to allow users a secure 2-Factor experience. (easy enough that I could re-create my Webauthn Sandbox after losing it in my migration, FUN! Well, sarcasm aside, there are a few things I dont like with it, and one of them is the default state of the userVerification Flag.
