With the introduction of macOS Ventura (v.13) as well as the new iOS 16, Apple has also rolled out the new Passkeys features first introduced at WWDC 2022.
Apple's introduction to Passkeys feature in macOS 13 and iOS 16
While Apple is not the only company going down the passwordless route, nor is it the first, it took a bit of time to bring this new password-free future to its customers. It is still not all there, and in order for this to work, many companies, platforms, and hardware need to become compliant with the technology behind it.
There is much to say on this matter, but this article will demonstrate how anyone can use this method to log into the Synology DSM 7 using the passwordless method.
Now it is worth mentioning that this is not the same as logging into your DSM using the new DSM 7 Secure Sign-in method and a proprietary app, but rather utilizing Apple's iCloud Keychain and on-device end-to-end authentication.
