Depending on the security requirements for your application, you may need to use attestation to do business.

Attestation is a method for software to prove its identity during normal operations. The goal of attestation is to prove to a remote party that your operating system and application software are intact and trustworthy.

The best method of implementing attestation is through Security policies, specifically using the policy type drop-down and selecting Multi-factor authentication or User consent.

The Policy type selector options: Multi-factor authenticaiton or user consent
