Summary:
Symmetric keys for Microsoft Entra first-party applications' Service Principals will be disabled to enhance security. Organizations must switch to Asymmetric keys by June 15, 2024, to avoid authentication failures. Preparation involves replacing Symmetric with Asymmetric keys as detailed in the provided link.

Details:
Symmetric keys authentication relies on a shared key being sent by the client in its request to security token service. In the event the key is intercepted, it is permanently compromised.

To improve security posture of Microsoft first-party Applications and better protect customer data, client applications will no longer be able to use Symmetric Keys on Service Principals for First-Party Applications and must move to Asymmetric keys.
