Will constrained delegation using Kerberos be supported?

Regardless of the complexity of SSO we still have customers that want to "secure" everything they do with constrained delegation and in some instances see it as a show stopper.  Is there any plan to bring this into the product?

 

Thanks, James

Waow, this is a very interesting question.

 

I suppose that they want to use KCD in regard to their on-premises data sources otherwise I don't see it makes sense.

And the only on-premises data source that there truely is right now is SSAS Tabular, which supports and uses the EffectiveUserName property.

 

The EffectiveUserName property is a real Kerberos "killer" as it push the username down to the data source eliminating the need for delegating credentials. This way you get row level security without the need for setting up KCD.

 

If it becomes supported you will still need to setup Azure AD and Azure AD Application Proxy and then use an Azure AD Application proxy connector on you on-prem side. If these are 2 different domains you will have even more challenges before it works.

 

So for now, I will stay with the EffectiveUserName property if it's a viable solution for you.

 

Cheers
