What is SharePoint Kerberos and How Does It Enhance SharePoint Authentication?
SharePoint Kerberos is a Microsoft-native SharePoint authentication protocol that uses tickets provided by a trusted source provider to authenticate users. Kerberos is designed to validate authenticity of a user by validating a ticket provided by the authenticated client computer that the user is associated with. In doing so, the Kerberos protocol can assess things like the access control delegated to that user through their network credentials and control what network resources that user has access to.
Kerberos is known as the strong Microsoft-native SharePoint protocol supporting AES encryption and mutual authentication of network-connected machines and devices. This protocol can greatly benefit an organization's security measures by enhancing user authentication while also minimizing network traffic, page latency, and increasing the number of pages SharePoint can serve.
