RSA September 2023 Release Announcements

Cloud Authentication Service (CAS) Updates

The following subsections provide the highlights of the new and enhanced features of the Cloud Authentication Service (CAS):

Disable FIDO Synced Passkeys

In the past, FIDO only allowed a single copy of each FIDO credential. FIDO Synced Passkeys are a new type of FIDO credential that are automatically synced to multiple computing devices (e.g., computer, mobile, and tablet) owned by a user.

The Cloud Authentication Service now provides a mechanism to disable the use of FIDO Synced Passkeys in the registration and use for authentication in the Cloud Administration Console on the Access > FIDO Authentication page. Once synced passkeys are disabled, it is possible to set a grace period, so authentication will still work for users who have previously registered FIDO synced passkeys, and this will enable them to log into My Page > My Authenticators and register a new credential that is not a FIDO Synced Passkey.

RSA recommends that customers with high security use cases carefully consider the security reduction and potential regulatory implications of using FIDO Synced Passkeys in their deployments. FIDO Synced Passkeys offer convenience, but the security implications need to be fully understood before using them.

Note: In a future release, this setting will be disabled by default with a grace period set to allow time for existing users to register new authentication methods.

View Admin Event Monitor from the Cloud Administration Console

You can now view the audit log messages that describe Super Admin activities and their details from the Cloud Administration Console. You no longer need to use the Event Log API to retrieve audit log events. You can track and search for admin events for the past 90 days from Platform > Admin Event Monitor.

Configure Enrollment Settings for My Page

In the Cloud Administration Console, you can now configure the Enrollment settings for My Page. You can generate a one-time code and provide an enrollment URL to users to enroll their first authenticator device in the Self-Service Console.

Set Up your RSA Mobile Lock Console Account

You can use the Cloud Administration Console to create an account to access the RSA Mobile Lock Console. After you verify your email address or corporate email ID, you will receive an email from Zimperium, RSA Partner for delivering the RSA Mobile Lock capability, to activate your account and set your password.

Note: This feature will be available if you have the Mobile Lock add-on included in your plan.

Updated Titles in the Cloud Administration Console

In the Cloud Administration Console, a couple of titles have been changed for clarity and consistency. In the Cloud Administration Console, click Platform, the Audit Logging page has been renamed to IDR Audit Logging. The SSO Service Identity Providers title has been renamed to IDR SSO Service Identity Providers on the Users > Identity Providers page.

Rate Limiting the Cloud Administration APIs

API throttling controls the amount of traffic that Cloud Administration APIs can handle and limits how many calls can be made per second. When a request exceeds a rate limit, the request is throttled, and an HTTP 429 (too many requests) status code is returned.

RSA Authenticator 4.3 for iOS and Android - Coming Soon!

RSA Authenticator app V4.3 for iOS and Android will be released shortly. The new release is rebranded with the RSA logo and color schemes, and it supports code matching feature for Approve push notifications.
