Using Windows Authentication to Achieve Single Sign-On

Back to Single Sign-On again.  Today, we are not talking about Serena Single Sign-On so much, but having the user automatically authenticated using the user credentials logged on to the workstation.  I refer to this as auto-logon using Kerberos or NTLM credentials of the workstation user. 

The browser needs to be capable of auto-logon using the WWW-Authenticate header; it is the browser that makes auto-logon possible.  Chrome has this ability built in, and you can specify sites to do this auto-logon in Firefox.  Neither Firefox nor Chrome use the Security Zones that Internet Explorer uses.

Running down the trail of SBM Inheritance


SBM Inheritance

If there is one thing that causes some folks heartburn, it is the built in inheritance in SBM.  If you started with SBM back in the day when it was called TeamTrack, you may be familiar or you may have the most heartburn.  J  SBM has addressed some of the headaches that comes along with inheritance with the introduction of Composer, but the old saying that we give you enough rope to hang yourself is still in effect.
