The February 2021 release of the Cloud Authentication Service contains the following features.
- Configured SAML applications can assign entitlements dynamically based on the business context, such as the user role, as included in the SAML assertion. In the SAML authentication response, the Cloud Authentication Service can send the constant multivalue attributes that you define, in addition to user attributes from the identity source, to SAML applications. For instructions, see Configure Advanced Settings for a SAML Connection.
- You can install RSA MFA Agent 1.2 for macOS on Intel ® computers running macOS Big Sur (11.1). The agent also provides emergency access for users to sign in to their offline computers when their primary authenticator is misplaced or unavailable. You can customize the agent by disabling MFA for all unlock situations or for up to 12 hours, and by configuring the number of unsuccessful offline authentication attempts allowed with Authenticate Tokencode. For more information, see RSA MFA Agent for macOS.
- Beginning March 16, 2021, the Cloud Administration Console will no longer support Internet Explorer. For an up-to-date list of supported browsers, see Supported Browsers for the Cloud Administration Console.
