How to activate authenton#1 FIDO2 for Azure
Activating FIDO2 in Azure involves a few steps. Here's a general overview:
- Enable FIDO2 authentication in Azure AD: First, you need to enable FIDO2 authentication in your Azure Active Directory (AD) tenant. This can be done through the Azure AD portal. Go to "Azure Active Directory" > "Security" > "Authentication methods" > "FIDO2 security key" and enable the FIDO2 security key option.
- Register a FIDO2 security key: Once FIDO2 authentication is enabled, you need to register a FIDO2 security key for your Azure AD account. To do this, log in to your Azure AD account, go to "Security info" and select "Add method." Choose "Security key" and follow the instructions to register your FIDO2 security key.
- Configure FIDO2 authentication policies: You can configure FIDO2 authentication policies to suit your organization's security requirements. This can be done through the Azure AD portal. Go to "Azure Active Directory" > "Security" > "Conditional Access" and select the appropriate policies.
- Test FIDO2 authentication: Once you have registered your FIDO2 security key and configured the appropriate policies, test FIDO2 authentication by logging out of Azure AD and logging back in using your FIDO2 security key.
That's it! With these steps, you have successfully activated FIDO2 authentication in Azure AD.
