White Paper Wednesday – Configuring Kerberos Authentication for Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products

This week we’re highlighting a new whitepaper on  Configuring Kerberos Authentication for Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products. It’s written by Tom Wisnowski and the ret of the SQL CAT team has contributed..  You can get it herehttp://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=196600 and it’s a great resource for getting Kerberos working in your SharePoint 2010 environment. All to often I have heard folks saying “Oh  we have to use Kerberos? Isn’t there another option?” This is because Kerberos can be tricky and challenging to deal with.  This paper has some great insights about multiple SharePoint Scenarios. Just read the Summary

“Microsoft® SharePoint® 2010 Products introduce significant improvements in how identity is managed in the platform. It is vitally import to understand how these changes affect solution design and platform configuration to enable scenarios that require user identity to be delegated to integrated systems. The Kerberos version 5 protocol plays a key role in enabling delegation and sometimes may be required in these scenarios.

This document provides you with the information that will help you:

· Understand the concepts of identity in SharePoint 2010 Products

· Learn how Kerberos authentication plays a critical role in authentication and delegation scenarios

· Identify the situations where Kerberos authentication should be leveraged or may be required in solution designs

· Configure Kerberos authentication end-to-end within your environment including scenarios which leverage various service applications in SharePoint Server

· Test and validate that Kerberos authentication is configured correctly and working as expected

· Find additional tools and resources to help you configure Kerberos authentication in your environment”

Check it out and get some good info on getting this set up in your environment.

I’m looking forward to seeing all of you and speaking to you soon.
