Description

With Windows 10 strong authentication and biometrics we’re poised for mainstreaming on Windows devices with Microsoft Passport and Windows Hello. These solutions are about to become more flexible than ever with the companion device framework that will enable IHV’s to build a broad range of devices (e.g.: wearables, NFC cards, etc) that can be used to remotely unlock or even authenticate on your Windows 10 devices.

    What happens when this happens? PC has multiple user accounts. Each user has a registered Band or other BT companion device for their own login authentication. Several users then come near the PC.

    Also, does the authentication protocol use D-H key exchange and message sequence security or some other method to secure the communication so that outside devices cannot intercept and potentially spoof the authentication?

    There is Note attached to this article/video:
    Note The Windows Hello companion device framework is a specialized feature not available to all app developers. To use this framework, your app must be specifically provisioned by Microsoft and list the restricted secondaryAuthenticationFactor capability in its manifest. To obtain approval, contact cdfonboard@microsoft.com.

    When I emailed to the above email address for approval - the email bounces...
    Anybody has an idea of what's going on?
