Migrate legacy MFA and legacy SSPR policies to the authentication methods in Microsoft Entra ID

Microsoft Entra Conditional Access: Block Authentication Flows

The Microsoft Entra Conditional Access for authentication flows regulates the use of the device code flow and authentication transfer. The device code flow is used to authenticate devices that do not have a browser or whose input is restricted, such as smart TVs, IoT devices, or printers. The device code flow represents a high-risk authentication flow, which could be exploited in phishing attacks or to gain access to corporate resources on unmanaged devices. The authentication transfer is a new flow that provides a seamless way to transfer the authenticated state from one device to another. In the desktop version of Outlook, users might be presented with a QR code. When they scan it on their mobile device, their authenticated state is transferred to the mobile device.

Phishing-resistant multi-factor-authentication, such as FIDO2 protocol on a security key in combination with Microsoft Entra Privileged Identity Management (PIM), significantly increases security for the Microsoft Tenant and convenience for the user.
