Features, enhancements, and other improvements
Protect SSH servers with Duo Network Gateway 1.3.0
- You can now protect SSH servers using Duo Network Gateway 1.3.0, which was released March 19, 2018.
- This allows you to remotely access your SSH servers by tunneling the connection through DNG using HTTPS. You can group access to a set of servers, after you’ve authenticated you’ll be able to connect all servers in that group. You might decide to group servers by level of security or by departments within your organization. Each group of servers can have its own policies.
- Learn more about protecting SSH servers with DNG in the documentation.
Trusted Endpoints now supports Sophos MDM for Duo certificate deployment to mobile devices
- Sophos MDM can now be used as a Trusted Endpoints mobile configuration. An administrator must have Sophos version 8.0 or higher deployed as their MDM to utilize it as a Trusted Endpoints configuration.
Trusted Endpoints now supports short-lived certificates
- When configuring a Trusted Endpoints integration, Duo administrators may now choose between using seven-day (short-lived) certificates and one-year certificates. This feature can help administrators ensure that their users are still in their management systems. This feature is available for all Trusted Endpoints integrations. Duo suggests using seven-day certificates if using Trusted Endpoints to protect Citrix clients or similar VDI environments.
Admin API now features new bypass code endpoints
- New endpoints for managing bypass codes with Admin API have been added.
Improvements to Duo administrator factor restrictions setup
- When restricting Duo Administrator two-factor methods on the Administrator Login Settings page in the Duo Admin Panel, the methods the admin logged in with will be disabled with a message explaining that this is to prevent the admin from locking themselves out, along with how it can be disabled. Previously, attempting to disable this methods would always result in an error.
- When restricting admin methods on the Administrator Login Settings page, when an admin removes one or more methods and hits save, a confirmation dialog box will ask to confirm that the administrator to remove those factors. It also warns that they may be locking out some administrators.

- Previously if a customer tried to use the Google Drive File Stream with an account protected via a U2F token, Google Drive File Stream would crash. This bug has been fixed. The solution was to disable the U2F option when attempting to authenticate a Google Drive File Stream user. Google Drive File Stream cannot use U2F.
