Mar 29, 2023 ‚ÄĒ Extensionless FIDO2 Phone Security Key and new integrations

New features and enhancements

FIDO2 Phone Security Key can now be used without requiring the browser extension. This new feature makes it easier and more convenient to use the roaming FIDO2 Phone Security Key authenticator, as users no longer need to install a browser extension to use their mobile device as a security key. This new capability is being enabled across the customer base in phases; if you do not yet see this in your ‚ÄčAkamai MFA‚Äč portal (Enterprise Center), please reach out to your ‚ÄčAkamai‚Äč representative.

Integration with PingFederate. With this SAML-based integration, you can connect your PingFederate solution with ‚ÄčAkamai MFA‚Äč to provide users with strong multi-factor authentication before they can access applications and resources.

Integration with Keycloak. This integration lets you connect ‚ÄčAkamai MFA‚Äč with Keycloak to create an additional layer of security and protect your user accounts with strong multi-factor authentication.

The latest enhancements to the My Devices page let you manage your authenticators more effectively.

Known issues

  • Users using the Windows Logon plug-in and attempting to unlock the Windows locked screen may sometimes encounter errors entering just the username.
    Workaround: Users may try entering domain\username in the username field to unlock the screen.

  • Clicking the ‚ÄúHelp‚ÄĚ link present in the ‚ÄčAkamai MFA‚Äč authentication prompt may not open the link in the webview presented inside an application‚Äôs client, such as the WebEx client, that is used to authenticate with MFA for that application. As an alternative, the user may enter <<MFA_DOMAIN>>/help in a standard web browser and reach the same destination.
