R.E.M. sings "But that was just a dream"
I'll stop [completely] using passwords when they pry them, and C programmiing, from my cold, dead hands. Because the end of both anytime soon is an illusion that many talk about, but never happens. Sure, use of passwords in some (maybe many) cases can be replaced (or at least augmented), but not replaced. You may as well ask everyone to stop using house keys.

Even if we replaced most web authentication with client side PKI, most users would still likely be using a master password for their private keystore. And personally, I think they should/could have done over a decade ago, if they had tweaked TLS (or simply added a PKI http auth type to go along side "basic" and "digest") that made it easier to integrate PKI auth with the way normal user/password works.

So there's my $0.07 ($0.02, adjusted for inflation).

Improving Enterprise Cybersecurity With XDR
Enterprises are looking at eXtended Detection and Response technologies to improve their abilities to detect, and respond to, threats. While endpoint detection and response is not new to enterprise security, organizations have to improve network visibility, expand data collection and expand threat hunting capabilites if they want their XDR deployments to succeed. This issue of Tech Insights also includes: a market overview for XDR from Omdia, questions to ask before deploying XDR, and an XDR primer.
