Team, goal of the working groups is to provide greater visibility into our roadmap and more opportunities for the community to provide feedback on DFINITY’s contributions to the Internet Computer.

Hello everyone! It’s a pleasure to work for you all.

By way of introduction, our team at Internet Identity Labs is on a mission to eliminate friction from the internet while constraining ourselves to absolute privacy and absolute security, and have introduced a few previews over the last few months of what we’re developing with NFID.

At the heart of NFID is Internet Identity, which we see as absolutely critical to the privacy and security of our online identities. Our goal for participating in this working group is to assist in improving core Internet Identity functionality without compromising privacy or security.

We’ve already worked with the community to submit PRs for two improvements, and hope these sessions will help prioritize more. So far we’ve:

  • Added support for Apple Passkeys (in Dfinity review)
  • Introduced improved recovery phrase protection from attack (in implementation review)

Looking forward to working with Bruce and the AstroX team on organizing the community effort towards improving the lifeblood of the future of the world’s online identities!
