Kerberos Authentication - the easiest way to integrate with Active Directory
In this session we focused on Kerberos authentication. We started with some basic background on Kerberos and demonstrated the use of Kerberos in an Oracle Database environment. Then we discussed the implementation of Kerberos with the Oracle Database including the different files and components involved in the configuration of the service. We moved from implementation to troubleshooting, discussing techniques for locating issues in a Kerberos setup. We finished with a demonstration of troubleshooting a typical Kerberos configuration issue.
