Configure authentication and delegation

Depending on your requirements, there are several authentication and delegations methods.

Method Detail
Configure the authentication service The authentication service authenticates users to Microsoft Active Directory, ensuring that users do not need to log on again to access their desktops and applications.
XML service-based authentication When StoreFront is not in the same domain as Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, and it is not possible to put Active Directory trusts in place, you can configure StoreFront to use the Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops XML Service to authenticate the user name and password credentials.
Smart card authentication Set up smart card authentication for all the components in a typical StoreFront deployment.
Password expiry notification period If you enable Citrix Receiver for Web site users to change their passwords at any time, local users whose passwords are about to expire are shown a warning when they log on.
