Getting Started With SQRL

If you are new to SQRL, this page will help to get you started.
  • SUCCESS!! We have a nice site-wide performance boost!
    More recent editions of PHP (since v5.5) incorporate a built-in post-compilation interpreter opcode caching facility. That facility is disabled by default, and it had been. It's now up and running, configured and tuned. I've been monitoring its performance counters and it appears to be working very nicely. Our pages feel snappier such that it no longer feels laggy, and I think this will allow the site to scale well.
  • SQRL Has Reached Pre-Launch Countdown
    Welcome to the SQRL Forums!
    Although we are getting close to official formal release, there is no counter counting down. The SQRL clients are working and are becoming feature complete, this site is being fleshed out and readied to handle SQRL newbies who are interested and wishing to know more, and GRC is working to update the original SQRL documentation for those who want to understand what's under the hood. If you are new here, we recommend the following resources which you can also find on the main Forum list page:(This notice will remain here for your convenience as you wander around until you close it with the [X] at the upper right. )

What exactly IS SQRL?
SQRL is a system to completely replace the usernames, passwords and eMail addresses commonly used for logging into websites. It requires the use of a SQRL app which first creates and then securely contains and presents your unique SQRL identity to any website which supports SQRL logon.
