Date Added: Mar 2010
Format: PDF

Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA) support for Web applications provides a Single Sign-On solution in the Windows environment. After examining the Kerberos and Simple and Protected GSS-API Negotiation Mechanism (SPNEGO) protocols, which are the backbones of IWA support for Web applications, this paper explains IWA configuration options for SAS Enterprise BI (EBI) Web applications. There is a significant difference in IWA configuration for SAS 9.1.3 and SAS 9.2. The new logon process for SAS 9.2 Enterprise BI Web applications requires advanced setup for IWA/SPNEGO support in the application servers. This paper presents the major steps involved in configuring support for SPNEGO in the application servers along with information about configuring SAS EBI Web applications with Web authentication in an IWA environment.
