Azure MFA–Publishing MFA Portals using Web Applicaion Proxy


The goal is to publish on premises Microsoft Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) server portals using Web Application Proxy Service (not Azure Application Proxy!) The Microsoft MFA has the following 3 portals:

1. User Portal - The User Portal section allows the administrator to install and configure the Multi-Factor Authentication User Portal.

2. Web Service SDK - The Web Service SDK section allows the administrator to install the Multi-Factor Authentication Web Service SDK.

3. Mobile App - The Mobile App section allows the administrator to configure settings for the Mobile App.  There is also a Mobile App Web Service which needs to be installed to support mobile app activations.

At the end of the configuration, my goal is to provide a single direction URL for User Portal, Web Service SDK and Mobile App shown below:




Hi. Have you managed to get this working

Yes. Ran in to any issues? What is the issue?

Sorry I thought you said you were going to make a guide.

The ADFS servers sit behind the WAP servers. Where have you installed the user portal? and how have you published this to the outside?

Interesting. I had step-by-step instructions on configuring this. Somehow it got deleted. I will re-post it as soon as I can.

I have dedicated machines for User Portal. Then I published it through WAP. Technically, it doesn’t matter. It is just a URL you can publish it from anywhere.
If you have more than on web services/site/directories running on an IIS, you need to use IIS re-direction.

Hi Santhosh,
How is that different if we publish the MFA portals using AAD Application proxy?

You can publish MFA or any on-premises application using AADProxy. However, most of the enterprise customers are already using ADFA/WAP. So it is easier fro them to add another URL (MFA Portal) to existing WAP

I was very encouraged to find this site. I wanted to thank you for this special read. I definitely savored every little bit of it and I have you bookmarked to check out new stuff you post. Russia
