For those of you who use smart cards to help increase the security of your environment, Azure Virtual Desktop now support signing in to Azure AD with smart cards. While this isn't a new feature for Azure AD, configuring Active Directory Federation Services to sign in with smart cards is now supported in Azure Virtual Desktop.

 

To get started, have a look at the newly updated Authentication page for Azure Virtual Desktop.
