Authentication via Kerberos

Dear experts,

We are using CO virtual appliance 3.02 at client's place and would like to know if the CO authentication can be based on Kerberos; I could not find any information in the doc set except PKI; but due to security and other standard limitations at client's side, kerberos authentication with CO looks like an option here .


Any documentation or steps or guide will be helpful.

Hello Subh,

I apologize for the delay in responding.

Unfortunately, Kerberos authentication is currently not available for Cloud Optimizer.

As you probably saw within the product documentation (Online Help Guide), there is LDAP, PKI Authentication and CAC (which requires PKI).

There appears to be an old enhancement request for Kerberos Authentication.

QCCR8D78961 Kerberos based authentication

You could open support case to have yourself added to that existing enhancement request to have Kerberos authentication added to a future version of the product.

I'm sorry that I could not provide a better answer.
