Kerberos Auth + SSO with Sharepoint 2010




We have a special request:



Build an authentication page blocking all access to sharepoint before Kerberos authentication is done in a nice company branded page.

Arrange F5 Kerberos authentication integration with Sharepoint to support Single Sign on.


After authentication keep session active (timer ? managed by the F5 ? by the Sharepoint ? Until logged out of sharepoint ?)



I don't really know where to begin.


It seems I have to play with Kerberos delegation



I've already asked to client to see if he has the ADD CLIENT AUTHENTICATION license.




Any info would be nice. Is this scenario even possible ? (client has 10.2.1)

  • This will be possible in v11(due out this quarter) while leveraging APM(Access Policy Manager) product on top of the LTM. The beta of v11 is available now at - feel free to sign up, download beta, and start playing with it. Kerberos use case documentation is available on the beta site as well. This is definitely a great use case for leveraging F5 technology in front of Sharepoint. Please post your feedback and follow-up questions if needed.


  • Thanks for that reply. But is the APM layer in v11 absolutely necessary to do this ?


    Can't we go with ACA and v10.2.1 ?



    I just need to be sure, cause i have to explain my client to postpone everything 3 months if we need v11.
