Extending and Monitoring Microsoft Entra ID MFA
Extending and Monitoring Microsoft Entra ID MFA looks at how on-premises infrastructure can utilize Entra ID to provide multi-factor authentication. MFA is almost taken for granted in cloud-only scenarios and provides added security in an online world. This Lesson focuses on how existing Entra ID MFA can be integrated into an on-premises network. We start with a general overview of the external or remote user login process before moving on to a Microsoft-specific implementation. Then, we see what’s required to integrate Entra ID MFA with Active Directory authentication.
- Learn about the technologies involved in cloud-based MFA and on-premises Active Directory
- Learn the process flow of multi-factor authentication with on-premises infrastructure
- Set up the software to implement on-premises MFA
- Those that want to know how to set up Entra ID verification with Active Directory
- Students preparing for the SC-300: Microsoft Identity and Access Administrator exam
- Have a basic understanding of multi-factor authentication in the context of Entra ID
- The demonstration involves setting up and configuring software on a Windows Server machine. While not essential, familiarity with the Windows Server dashboard would be helpful
Hi, and welcome to this Extending and Monitoring Microsoft Entra ID MFA lesson. My name is Hallam Webber, and I'm an Azure instructor with 25-plus years of experience in the IT industry, and since 2014 I've focused on Microsoft Azure and related technologies.
This lesson is for those students wanting to know how to add multi-factor authentication to on-premises Active Directory logins, as well as students preparing for the SC-300: Microsoft Identity and Access Administrator exam.
We start the lesson by looking at the underlying technologies that support the workflow of MFA with on-premises infrastructure. Then we see how to set up the key on-premises software components used to implement MFA with Active Directory.
This lesson is atypical of most Azure content as it focuses primarily on non-cloud elements. Students should have a basic understanding of multi-factor authentication in the context of Entra ID. While the installation demonstration is on Windows Server, it’s easy to follow without in-depth knowledge of the platform.
