I need the authentication while using explicit-web-proxy.
The matter of fact is that obviously, it needs Kerberos authentication for authentication of AD-Users but in the documents on the given link below, by Fortinet, it didn't give us the picture clearly. I read the authentication document in which it defines all Kerberos authentication process.
Can I configure the FortiOS 5.6.x authentication settings on FortiOS 6.0, as I'm using this on Fortigate-VM 64 on evaluation period, or I need to set up the only Kerberos environment?
I want to know that is there any good guide or any video that can show us how to configure the process or do you have any kind of notes regarding this.
Hope to see your kind reply soon.
Thnks in advance.
Well, thanks Tomas for your kind reply, yes the document is too complex neither Fortinet made any video on their video library, so its too complex I tried all the things but don't know which thing is missing.
Doing some Kereros + Explicit Proxy testings on v6.0.4.
Simple question, how is a user mapped towards multiple AD groups?? For the moment it seems i'm mapped to the 1st group alphabetically and not multiple groups.
The idea would be multiple AD groups mapped to different Explicit Proxy rules each having different Web Filtering profiles applied. Although, we would want to have the possibility to map users within multiple groups, hence mapped to different Web Filtering profile (Social_Surfers, Sports_Surfers, Hacking_Surfers etc...). You add Bob within Social_Surfers group @AD and it dynamically can surf Social Networks on the fly while keeping it's previous surfing "rights" from say Sports_Surfers where he also belongs.
That scheme is possible with FSSO but couldn't reach my goal with Kerberos. User seems mapped to only ONE group while being members of more than one.
Hey there Khizer,
thanks for the update.. yes i saw that this is working with FSSO but wanted to achieve the same with Kerberos.. the FSSO polling agent at the FortiGate isn't supposed to scale at more than 200 users i think. hence the need for Kerberos..
No no, you are not clear on it. You can add 1000+ AD groups per single FSSO Object, and it's confirmed.
I consult the Fortinet TAC engineer while doing my project of the explicit web proxy. Unfortunately, I lost that table in which exact numbers were given, but I',m 100% sure it's feasible and secure too.
