KB-6142: Can Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA) work with Web Proxy?

Centrify Identity Service, App Edition ,  

12 April,16 at 10:57 AM

Applies to: All versions of Centrify Identity Service

Question:

If a Web Proxy is configured between user's browser and the Internet, will Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA) still work? 

Answer:

Integrated Windows Authentication (IWA) uses negotiation between a user's web browser and an online Cloud Connector instance to validate the user's identity.

If connectivity between the users web browser and an online Cloud Connector is not possible (e.g. the user is not on premise) or if that connectivity flows through a web-proxy, then IWA will silently fail and the user will be presented with the standard login process.

A Web Proxy set between the client browser and the internet will not affect the IWA process.
