Intune – You can now use a device-based certificate for all operating system

As you may already know, you are able with Intune to provide a PKCS certificate for user when connecting to WiFi or VPN networks (see for more details).

If you wanted to use a PKCS certificate for device based authentication, this was only possible for macOS based devices.

Well, good news, the latest update of Intune (service release 1912) now offers this capability (device-based certificate) for all operating system (Windows, Android for Work and iOS; off course macOS is still supported)

When creating or editing the SCEP certificate profile type, you now have the choice for these OSes to choose between user or device
