Windows SSO authentication is a more conservative approach for user authentication than SSO authorization. In the case of authentication, only the username and password will be checked against the AD.
To activate, add windows-sso-authentication in the palo.ini.
Neither group assignment nor the creation of users will be done automatically.
|Pros: more flexibility||Cons: higher risk, more maintenance|
