In my earlier blog, I explained how Azure AD identity federation works under-the-hood. In this post, I’ll be doing the same with Azure AD pass-through authentication (PTA).
Microsoft has published a PowerShell module for their partners to ease and automate operations with their customers. This module is (quite intuitively) called Partner Center. While the module does well what it’s meant to do, it also tells Microsoft what the partners are doing.
On October 25th, I’ll be talking at t2.fi infosec conference in Helsinki. In this blog, I’ll tell what to expect in my Abusing Azure Active Directory: Who would you like to be today? presentation.
In 2017, Oliver Morton introduced a feature he found in Office 365 Active Sync, allowing enumerating the existence of the users based on http status codes. (Update: The “feature” was fixed by Microsoft on mid November 2019). In this blog, I’ll introduce my similar findings on using Microsoft API to enumerate users when Seamless SSO is enabled in Azure AD tenant.
I was honoured to hear that I was accepted to present my AADInternals toolkit at the most respected information security event in the world: Black Hat USA 2019. This is clearly one of my greatest professional achievements so far! In this blog, I’ll briefly introduce what to expect in my demo at Black Hat Arsenal.
Identity federation is regarded as the most secure way to authenticate users to Azure AD. In this blog, I’ll deep-dive to identity federation implementation of Azure AD and point out some serious security issues.
Microsoft (finally!) announced in April 2019 the support for 8-256 character passwords in Azure AD/Office 365. This limit does not apply to users whose passwords are synced from the on-prem Active Directory (or for federated users). In this blog, I tell how to set insanely long passwords (64K+) also for cloud-only users!
On November 2018 Azure AD MFA was down over 12 hours preventing users from logging in to Office 365. Same happened in October 2019 in US data centers. As MFA is usually mandatory for administrators by company policy, they couldn’t log in either. In this blog, I’ll show how to create a backdoor to Azure AD so you can log in and bypass MFA.
