Overview/Description

Device authentication is a security mechanism used to prevent unauthorized devices from connecting to a service, network, or site. In this 14-video course, learners explore Windows 10 device authentication techniques, features, and best practices. Begin with an overview of the basics of Windows authentication and authorization, and a look at the basic architectural scheme for Windows authentication. Next, learn about authentication concepts such as credentials, security principals, and delegated authentication. Recognize when to use different logons: interactive, network, biometric, and smart cards. Learn how to access group policy settings related to authentication; add sign-in options in Windows 10; and enable the secure sign-in feature. Explore Windows Hello for Business and its prerequisites; learn why a pin is better than a password, and examine the four-step approach to a password-less strategy. Take a look at benefits of using Azure Active Directory (AD) joined devices and join and register a Windows 10 device to Azure AD. Close the course with an exercise working with Windows authentication. This is one course in a series to prepare for the MD-101: Managing Modern Desktops certification exam.
