Support for Single Sign-on Support with Citrix Gateway

Single Sign-on lets you authenticate to a domain and use Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops delivered by that domain without having to re-authenticate to each app or desktop. When you add a store using the Storebrowse utility, your credentials are passed through to Citrix Gateway server, along with the Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops enumerated for you, including your Start menu settings. After configuring Single Sign-on, you can add the store, enumerate the Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, launch the required resource without having to type your credentials multiple times.

This feature is supported on Citrix Gateway Version 11 and later.
