Using programs optimized for Kerberos authentication
As a management platform, Centrify provides its own versions of commonly-used open source programs. For example, the following packages have been optimized to work with Centrify software and Active Directory:
- Standard MIT Kerberos utilities, such as kinit and kdestroy, are installed with the agent to support Kerberos keytab management for accounts in Active Directory.
- Kerberos-enabled client programs such as OpenSSH, support Kerberos authentication and single sign-on for secure connections between Centrify-managed computers.
- An enhanced version of PuTTY supports Kerberos authentication for secure, remote access from Windows computers to Centrify-managed computers.
