Configuring ELM clients for Kerberos/SPNEGO SSO

Some configuration is required to allow ELM clients and, in some cases, their host operating systems to authenticate with a Jazz® Team Server that uses Kerberos/SPNEGO authentication.

About this task

The Kerberos authentication protocol relies on a ticket system to permit users to authenticate in a secure manner. When a client authenticates with the Kerberos Key Distribution Center (KDC) in a Microsoft Active Directory domain, the client is granted a ticket-granting ticket (TGT) and a session key. To use an application that accesses a service that is registered in the same domain, the client requests a separate session ticket for the service.
