Passwordless login for OXID eShop
With this module, the login in the OXID shop can be carried out with a hardware based login key (WebAuthn / FIDO2 based passkey) instead of a password.
This secures the login in the frontend and (if allowed for the user) also in the backend.
Login keys are from devices that contain cryptographic keys. These can be used for two-factor authentication. The login key device must support the standard "WebAuthn".
The key management is done in the admin area and in the user's "My Account".

What is FIDO2?
It enables secure authentication of the user in web-based user interfaces via a browser. Instead of a password ("knowledge" factor), one logs in with special hardware that uses strong public key cryptography for verification ("ownership" factor). Due to the way it is implemented, FIDO2 logins cannot be intercepted by phishing.
FIDO2 describes the entire authentication process, WebAuthn and CTAP are subcomponents of this process. CTAP is the communication from the FIDO2 device to the client / browser. WebAuthn handles the transmission from the browser to the application (shop).
Any FIDO2-certified hardware can be used for registration. This can be:
- Cross-Platform Authenticators (device-independent):
- Platform Authenticators (device-dependent)
- Face ID devices
- Windows Hello devices
- Hybrid authenticators
- Smartphones with Touch ID (Android from version 7, iOS from version 14),
FIDO2 can be used as:
- an additional 2nd factor to the existing username-password combination
- as a secure substitute instead of a password (passwordless, still in connection with the entry of a user name)
- as a complete substitute for user name and password (with login data stored in the FIDO2 device).
In this module, passwordless login is currently implemented (2nd option). For the 1st options we see too little security gain compared to option 2. The implementation of the 3rd option is technically feasible, but for the normal field of application not very relevant and technically complex. If required, we are available for enquiries.
When registering a FIDO2 key, access data is created in order to be able to check a later login attempt. These access data are firmly bound to the customer account and the shop and cannot be exchanged with each other.
This package requires an OXID eShop installed with Composer in one of the following versions:
and its requirements.
The Flow and Wave themes are supported by default. Other themes may require customisation.
Module installation / update
Open a command line interface and navigate to the shop root directory (parent of source and vendor). Execute the following commands. Adapt the paths to your environment.
composer require d3/oxid-twofactor-passwordless:^1.0
./vendor/bin/oe-eshop-db_migrate migrations:migrate d3webauthn
If a reference to an unsuitable package
symfony/process is shown, this must be changed. To do this, please add the switch
-W to the above command (
... require -W ...).
Activate the module in the admin area of the shop in "Extensions -> Modules".
The shop account is opened (as usual) with user name and password. Afterwards, FIDO2 keys can be added as an additional authentication option. From this moment on, logging into the shop (frontend and backend) can be done either with FIDO2 or with password. Both work independently of each other.
Logging in with password does not differ from the shop standard and remains as a fallback option.
To use the registered FIDO2 keys, simply leave the password field blank when logging in. As soon as at least one character is entered in the password field, a login with password is assumed. If the password field is left blank, the system checks for the existence of a key registration and, if successful, requests the corresponding device. If there is no registration, a login with password is also assumed.
The keys can be easily managed in the My Account area of the frontend and also in the customer account in the backend. The administration includes the registration of new keys (multiple keys per account are possible and recommended). A free text name can be assigned to each key. Furthermore, all registered keys are displayed with their names. Registered keys can also be deleted there.
Since a password is no longer required with a FIDO2-based login, the backup password can also be more complex than passwords suitable for everyday use.
- allows Platform and Cross-Platform Authenticators
- does not define interface restrictions (USB, NFC, ...)
- User verification recommended, but not required
- Not all browsers can e.g. request the PIN from Cross-Platform Authenticators, with User Verification these browsers are excluded from use
- does not request attestation
- no request for user data stored on the device
- Timeout: 60 seconds
All other options can be freely adapted to individual requirements by overloading.
