How to enable Digital Fingerprinting (DFP) Device recognition

    Applies to:
  • Legacy SecureAuth IdP
Deployment model:
  • On Premises
  • SecureAuth version affected: All

    Description: When a User logs into a realm, it is possible to use Device Recognition to prevent them having to MFA every time they access the realm. This article is a quick guide on how to enable this feature.



    Fingerprinting has the following requirements:


    1. The Fingerprint property field needs to be set to an appropriate attribute and marked as writable in the Data tab of the realm. Typically in an AD datastore we use the audio attribute to store the Fingerprint.finger.PNG
    2. The Datastore service account needs permissions to write to the fingerprint property field.
    3. Client Side Control needs to be set to Device/Browser Fingerprinting on the Workflow tab.
    4. Fingerprinting only occurs if Private Mode is selected.
