We are using JAAS for Kerberos authentication. As a requirement from the customer, we want to make sure that SMB V2 or higher must be used during communication with KDC/AD.
I've few basic questions related to this. Please excuse me if I sound too naive.
- Does SMB protocol come really into picture while using Kerberos authentication and credential delegation (esp with JAAS)?
- If yes, then is there any way we can identify which SMB version is being used? For eg- may be monitoring network traffic?
- Best practice to implement Kerberos + SMB? Any thoughts on latest JCIFS (available on GIT) libraries?
Any pointers are highly appreciated ! Thanks,
