Tech Tip : CA Single Sign-On : Integrated Windows Authentication Question

Discussion created by Patrick-Dussault Employee on Aug 31, 2018

Question:


We're running a Web Agent to offer Kerberos Authentication Scheme. We'd like to know if it is
supported to have 2 Kerberos Authentication Scheme on the same Web Agent ? The Web Agent acts as cookie provider.

 

We'd like to know also if this has been tested internally.

 

Answer:


At first glance, as this is not a scenario offered in the
documentation, that might work having probably some customization. As
you know, we provide out of the box configuration of Kerberos Authentication Scheme.

You should note that we support multiple Kerberos Domains in the same
krb5.conf file. As such, having different instances of Web Agents, you
might probably be able to achieve your goals.

In order to have more concrete experience feedback about this, we
strongly suggest you to consult CA Services. This team manage to do
implementation of CA Single Sign-On in companies, and as such, they
are the best positioned to tell you if this specific setting has once
been implemented successfully.

But here I cannot guarantee you 100% that this will work. In order to
get this setting fully QA'd, we'd like you to open and Idea on the
Security page :

 

1. Go to the CA Security Overview Page :
