Creating Kerberos principal

Working with Kerberos requires a SPNEGO service ticket to be granted by the Key Distribution Center (KDC). For example, a web browser always requests a key from the KDC in the format HTTP/service.url@REALM.

If Lenses is hosted at and the realm is EXAMPLE.COM the browser will always ask for a ticket on the principal HTTP/ (The realm can usually be omitted as it is part of the system-wide Kerberos settings).

Note: The Kerberos or Active Directory administrator will have to create a principal HTTP/ and provide a password-less keytab to use Lenses with Kerberos authentication.
