Hi, This is a pre-release document that I am working on and hope this will help many people who are having difficulty setting up a sample kerberos authentication.


This is Part 1, it is based on pure Windows Environment.


OS: Windows 2008 R2

SiteMinder Version: R12.52SP1

Web Server: IIS 7.5

All servers are joining the AD Domain.


So, this is going to be a very direct approach to setup a working sample environment and the purpose is to allow you to setup a sample working environment.

Hopefully then you will be able to further explore to setup that meets your enterprise requirement.


I am also preparing a Part 2 which would be including the following use case.


KDC is Windows 2012.

Policy Server is on Windows which is not joining the AD Domain.

Web Server is ASF 2.2.29 running on RHEL6.5.

It will be covering 2 use cases as below.


1. Kerberos Realm = AD Domain = Cookie Domain

2. Change of Cookie Domain from above setup


If you find any errors or have any comments, please do let me know and I will incorporate them in when submitting official technote.
