  • Kerbtray - This tool is used to display ticket information for a given computer running the Kerberos protocol.
  • KList - View and delete the Kerberos tickets granted to the current logon session.
  • Kerberos PowerShell Module - This module gives access to the Kerberos Ticket cache like klist.exe. 
  • Kerberos Authentication Tester - Great diagnostic tool - runs as an executable - no installation required.
    • It shows what authentication method is used in a web request: None, Basic, NTLM or Kerberos
    • It shows the SPN used in case of Kerberos
    • It shows the HTTP status
    • It shows the HTTP Headers of the request.
    • It shows the version of NTLM used (v1 or v2)
    • It has a detailed view with a complete breakdown of the Authorization header. (Yep, went through all the RFCs to dissect the Kerberos and NTLM packages)
    • It shows your current Kerberos tickets and allows you to remove them (like klist.exe)



  • E-Book Gallery for Microsoft Technologies
    • (Includes "Configure Kerberos Authentication for SharePoint 2010 Products".
