Many big organizations that have certificates have been using the
certificate-based authentication feature
while it was in preview and giving us feedback. Thank you for your input! Today, I’m excited to announce the GA of certificate based authentication.
This announcement enables two key scenarios:
1. Federated Azure AD customers can sign in using certificate-based authentication (performed against the federation server) with Office applications on iOS and Android. The chart below outlines the support for certificate-based authentication across Office applications:
2. Azure AD customers can sign in using certificate-based authentication with Exchange ActiveSync mobile apps in iOS and Android when signing in to Exchange Online.

documentation to get started with these scenarios
Of course, we always love to hear your feedback and suggestions, and look forward to hearing from you!
