Booking a meeting? Need to find available times? We work with a multitude of different clients from the pre-sales process, thru to implementation and project closure.

One of our clients recently asked to present all their options for Remote Support to their end-users. This organisation, like many others is always keen to keep costs down and has opted not to use a third-party solution, but instead to leverage existing native tools.

Privilege Access Certificate The Privilege Access Certificate or PAC is a Microsoft extension to Kerberos utilizing the Authorization Data field in the tickets. This is sometimes referred to as the Access Token, however strictly speaking the Access Token is the structure generated […]
Ok I think we have talked enough about SIDs in the previous two parts on SIDs and SIDHistory. Let’s move on to Kerberos tickets… Luckily in Kerberos there are really only two tickets (which confusingly are sometimes also referred to as Tokens) Ticket Granting Ticket (TGT) Service Ticket (ST) Both of these tickets are issued […]
