Kerberos Explained - Taming the Beast: Kerberos for the SQL Server DBA

David has a talk that he delivers at SQL Saturdays, all about Kerberos authentication.  What it is, how it works and the impact it can have on databases administrators if things sometime go awry with what is needed for it function correctly.

The talk  is called  “Taming the Beast: Kerberos for the SQL Server DBA” if you have ever encountered the Kerberos double hop issue –David’s talk provides a great explanation about the cause – missing or duplicate service principal names (SPNs).  David’s talks explains how Kerberos works and what you need to do to fix any SPN issues.

David introduces a great tool to help the SQL Server DBA work with SPNs. The tool is called Microsoft Kerberos Configuration Manager for SQL Server. This is really useful tool for helping you identify if you have the correct SPNs created. David explains how to use it in his talk.

David records a lot of his SQL Saturday presentations and he has recorded this one too. You can watch it here. When he first the YouTube video about a year ago it was very well received on LinkedIn. If you have any feedback on the talk feel free to leave a comment
