The integrated Kerberos Token Processor accepts and validates Kerberos tokens via a configured Kerberos realm. Moreover, it supports authentication mechanism assurance from Active Directory domain service, thus making it possible to restrict access to users authenticating through specific mechanisms. For more information, see Authentication mechanism assurance.

  • On the Instance Configuration screen, select the applicable domain from the Domain/Realm Name list.
    An Active Directory domain or a Kerberos realm must be configured for use with the Kerberos Token Processor. If the domain you want does not appear, click Manage Active Directory Domains/Kerberos Realms to add it. (For more information, see Configuring Active Directory domains or Kerberos realms.)

    Kerberos tickets can be accepted from domains other than the domain configured in the Token Processor, provided that there is a transient, two-way trust. This trust exists by default when domains are joined within a single server forest (see Multiple-domain support).
