This battle round, err, I mean session, will cover the topics of Kerberos authentication and delegation requirements for many of todays widely used and leveraged applications that interface with SQL Server services. Along with a primer on Kerberos security basics, we'll talk about the specific requirements of open and constrained delegation, which often land knock out blows to many of us when implementing SharePoint integration with Excel Services connecting to SQL Server Database Engine and Analysis Services.

Come and network with other database professionals (DBAs,Analysts,BI Specialists,and Developers just like you)!
