One of the most commonly asked questions amongst customers and partners are how-to setup Kerberos Single-Sign-On (SSO) into Horizon Workspace. Therefore I decided I should create this detailed step-by-step blog post on how to configure Kerberos in Horizon Workspace version 1.0 and 1.5.
Configuring Kerberos SSO into Horizon Workspace greatly enhances the end-user experience. If the end-user login to their domain joined desktop and access the Horizon Workspace web portal they will not be asked to sign-in once more, but are allowed access based on their Kerberos token. The Horizon Client version 1.5.2 also makes use of Kerberos SSO. Seamless to the users the Horizon Client will try to authenticate to the Horizon Workspace using Kerberos. If successful no further interaction from the end-user is required. This is especially useful in a Horizon View environment using non-persistent floating desktop pools.
