Question regarding SPN's RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a very limited knowledge of SPN usage and I would like to get a grasp on when exactly to use them.  I think I understand that they enable Kerberos authentication in the negotiate process but let me provide a scenario that I would like clarification on. 

    Lets say I am installing an application on Server01 that runs a service.  I have created a new service account in AD for this application because it requires rights to other resources in my domain.  Is there a reason to create an SPN for this user account?  Will it be a more secure configuration?

    Thanks to the community in advance!
