Tip of the Day: Windows Hello For Business Documentation Available

Today's tip...

In Windows 10, Windows Hello for Business replaces passwords with strong two-factor authentication on PCs and mobile devices. This authentication consists of a new type of user credential that is tied to a device and uses a biometric or PIN.

Windows Hello for Business lets user authenticate to an Active Directory or Azure Active Directory account.

Windows Hello addresses the following problems with passwords:

·         Strong passwords can be difficult to remember, and users often reuse passwords on multiple sites.

·         Server breaches can expose symmetric network credentials (passwords).

·         Passwords are subject to replay attacks.

·         Users can inadvertently expose their passwords due to phishing attacks.
