New ADAL hopefully means Outlook MFA coming soon

Remember back in April when I wrote this post on multi-factor authentication (MFA) for Office 2013? (It’s OK if you don’t, because you can go read it now.) Good news: one of the things required to ship MFA in office is an updated version of the Active Directory Authentication Library, or ADAL. Well, guess what? A couple of days ago, Microsoft announced a major Azure AD update that includes a new release of ADAL. The release notes don’t specifically mention MFA support in ADAL, but they do say that ADAL 2.0 supports “new authentication flows” so I am hopeful that this is the release required to unlock Office 2013 MFA support. I guess we’ll see; it wouldn’t surprise me to see Microsoft announce its availability at TechEd Europe, since that’s the next major event on their schedule. Stay tuned…
