Microsoft Entra ID and FIDO2: A Powerful Alliance
Entra ID, Microsoft’s multi cloud, multiplatform offering, delivers significant security enhancements with the incorporation of FIDO2 support. This industry-leading zero-trust solution addresses the persistent password problem, offering a robust defense against phishing, account takeovers, password theft, and replay attacks.
Why Choose FIDO2?
FIDO2, based on public key cryptography, stands as a beacon of security, surpassing traditional two-factor authentication methods. Here’s why it’s the optimal choice:
- MFA is more secure than 2FA and adding FIDO2 enhances MFA security when implemented with FIDO-certified hardware keys.
- Protects against phishing attempts, a prevalent threat in the digital landscape.
Simplified User Experience:
- Faster, simpler, and less costly to deploy and maintain.
- Provides a modern and user-friendly experience, aligning with Microsoft’s endorsement of FIDO2 security keys as the most modern, secure, and least complex MFA option.
Certificate-based Authentication (CBA) or FIDO2, or Both?
While CBA has been a legacy solution, regulations now allow FIDO2 as a credible alternative. The FIDO Alliance supports organizations leveraging FIDO to extend PKI security, offering flexibility and additional security for high-assurance solutions. FIDO2, with its speed, simplicity, and modern user experience, stands out as the preferred choice.
Software vs. Hardware Passkeys: Unveiling the Security Advantage
Choosing between software and hardware passkeys involves considering where the private key resides. Hardware keys, store their private encryption keys internally, ensuring a higher level of security. Software-based solutions, while familiar to users, are vulnerable to stolen devices and software attacks. An additional consideration is that hardware keys hold the associated passkeys for relying parties as device-bound passkeys making them fundamentally more secure.
