  • Hi,

    Thanks for your post!

    When you say Hard Token, does that mean an RSA Hard Token? If so, they're not supported. Because RSA tokens are not OATH-compliant. They use a proprietary algorithm. Tokens that have been tested and are being used by existing customers include Deepnet Security SafeID (time-based) tokens and Gemalto IDProve 100 tokens. Gemalto token secret keys can be imported into the MFA Server if you ask them for the older VeriSign format file. Other tokens can be imported via .csv file if the secret keys are in Base32 format.

    Best Regards

  • Thanks for your reply Sadiqh.

    I'm referring to the cloud based Azure MFA solution (not the on-prem, which I am aware will support 3rd party OATH-compliant tokens).

    I'm just wondering if the cloud offering has any plans to support oath-compliant hard tokens in the future.  Let's say we have an SaaS application integrated with an instance of Azure AD which we want MFA enforced.  The problem is, the users accessing the SaaS application are required to interact with other users over a land phone, and they do not have mobile or smart phones.  Thus, the methods involving a phone may not work.

  • It’s on the roadmap. No timeline to share at this point.
