YubiKey's 5Ci security keys allows password-less authentication via Lightning connector. It's the first security key that can plug into a iPhone or iPad Lightning port and USB-C port. Several apps supports authentication such as Brave, a browser app based on Chromium.
It would be great if Azure Active Directory and Edge supports the YubiKey for password-less authentication.
There is also an upcoming SDK to support the new NFC authentication capabilities in iOS. This will allow FIDO2 authentication over NFC and Lightning as well.
We’ve found some issues preventing us from enabling this at this time. We are working with Apple to resolve.
The password less sign-in option only works with the authenticator app on the phone and not on the Apple Watch ("Request type not supported on your watch"). It would be most convenient to be able to have this supported on the Apple Watch as well.23 votes
This is something we’ll consider to add in the future if there is more demand for this.
Google has added fingerprint authentication on Chrome including support of Apple's biometric sensors "Touch ID" last year:
This seems to be implemented via Web Authentication API.
It would be awesome to use Touch ID as 2nd Factor or password-less option in Azure Active Directory. Currently you are able to choose between NFC and USB only (tested on lastest build of Chrome).
It would be even better if Edge Chromium supported the built-in fingerprint of MacBooks. :)
However, it seems to be a limitation of Azure Active Directory.12 votes
We will look into the feasibility of doing this in the future.
We'd like the capability to login with printable badges for K-3 students to SSO applications in Azure AD. So that they can simply scan their badge that the teacher made for them and get into the application. Similar to the https://clever.com/products/badges. This would fit into the passwordless signon but not require phones as students may not have phones.3 votes
This is something we are currently investigating. Please feel free to add your use cases for this scenario in the comments.
