Reference Material | Configure Integrated Authentication

Windows Integrated Authentication allows a users’ Active Directory credentials to pass through their browser to a web server. Configuring Integrated Authentication for the user will automatically authenticate the user with Windows Identity, and grant the Windows Identity authentication token.

To authenticate a user automatically, you will need to configure local intranet sites or trusted sites for the browser:

https://login.specopssoft.com

https://js.specopsauthentication.com

https://trust.specopsauthentication.com

Windows Integrated Authentication is enabled by default for Internet Explorer, but not Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.

Configuring Delegated Security for Mozilla Firefox

To configure Firefox to use Windows Integrated Authentication:

  1. Open Firefox.
  2. In the address bar type about:config
  3. You will receive a security warning. To continue, click I’ll be careful, I promise.
  4. You will see a list of preferences listed. Find the settings below by browsing through the list or searching for them in the search box. Once you have located each setting, update the value to the following:
    SettingValue
    network.negotiate-auth.delegation-urishttps://login.specopssoft.com, https://js.specopsauthentication.com, https://trust.specopsauthentication.com

    network.negotiate-auth.allow-proxiesTrue

Configure Delegated Security in Google Chrome

The latest version of Chrome uses existing Internet Explorer settings. Older version of Chrome require additional configurations. Start Chrome with the following command:

Chrome.exe –auth-server-whitelist=”login.specopssoft.com, js.specopsauthentication.com, trust.specopsauthentication.com” –auth-negotiate-delegatewhitelist=”login.specopssoft.com, js.specopsauthentication.com, trust.specopsauthentication.com” –auth-schemes=”digest,ntlm,negotiate”
