You can use the Configure-Passwordless.ps1 PowerShell script to quickly perform the steps required to set up Windows login - passwordless.


Only use this for purposes such as informal testing or demonstrations. Do not use for a production instance.

  • Run Configure-Passwordless.ps1.

    The script carries out the following steps:

    • Creates and installs the CA certificate, also to the group policy
    • Sets externalId to be a unique attribute
    • Creates the authentication policy
    • Creates and configures the passwordless Windows login application
    • Creates a KDC certificate: request creation, issuing of certificate from request, installation of certificate

    You can download the script from GitHub.
