We are pleased to announce the release of the Curity Identity Server 8.6.
Though minor, this release contains several exciting new features, enhancements and fixes.
Here are some of the highlights:
The 8.6 release introduces a new authenticator, specially designed to make it easier to work with passkeys. The WebAuthn authenticator has been supporting passkeys already, but very often passkeys are all that is used. For this reason, we’ve simplified the usage and setup with this new specialized authenticator. It also shows a more familiar icon to users during the login process which users are more accustomed to.
BankID v.6 for Consentors and New Intent Message Support
The BankID upgrades have been finalized in this release with complete support for the version 6 API. The authenticator has been updated to support the new intent parameter which can either be configured on the authenticator with a static value, or be sent in a signed request or a PAR request to the server for dynamic values.
Improved OAuth Endpoints Editing
Finally, there have been lots of smaller improvements: database clients have received several updates including improved search, the UI for editing endpoints in the OAuth profile has been updated to make it easier to manage the procedures, and plugins on the endpoints and configuration loading times have been improved.
