Integrating with SPNEGO for Desktop SSO

Another possible scenario for integrating GateIn using SSO in several infrastructures is related to the use of the SPNEGO mechanism. We will see how to configure GateIn for this type of integration.

SPNEGO stands for Simple and Protected GSSAPI Negotiation Mechanism and it provides an automatic way to check if the operating system or the application server supports NT LAN Manager (NTLM) or Kerberos to authenticate user sessions.
