Microsoft Entra: Expanded support for device-bound passkeys in Microsoft Entra ID

Microsoft Entra: Expanded support for device-bound passkeys in Microsoft Entra ID

Microsoft Entra ID, a secure authentication system, is introducing a new feature that adds support for device-bound passkeys stored on computers and mobile devices, in addition to the existing support for FIDO2 security keys. This feature allows users to use the devices they already have to perform phishing-resistant authentication. The preview release of this feature will be accompanied by changes to the existing FIDO2 authentication methods policy and end-user experiences. Admins will need to enforce key restrictions to allow specified passkey providers in the FIDO2 policy for organizations to opt-in to this preview release. This feature will be available on desktop and cloud platforms, and it is expected to be released in April CY2024. The announcement was made on November 18, 2023 and the roadmap ID for this feature is 182056. For more information, refer to the Microsoft Entra roadmap.
