    What is an active directory authentication? I want to know about identity services that can centralize authentication for linux. I've read it can help reduce risks and the compliance burden. I want to understand more. Please share your ideas about managing privileged access efficiently.

    Hi. An Active Directory authentication allows users to log in to SGD if they have an account in an Active Directory domain. Active Directory authentication offers users a more secure, faster, and more scalable authentication mechanism than LDAP authentication. By using the Kerberos authentication protocol, SGD can securely authenticate any user against any domain in a forest. I hope this one helps. :)
