I can confirm that the Kerberos authentication with Active Directory is working smoothly. Though we had hit some issues when setting it up initially that were resolved by installing some additional Oracle patches. Our main goal was to get rid of the cumbersome database password authentication for developers. The upside is that you don’t need any additional Oracle products to that. On the downside, the roles still have to be managed within each individual database separately.

We are in the process of implementing Enterprise User Security<> where the authentication is done via the Kerberos tickets you get at windows logon. That requires a purchase of Directory Services Plus licenses (if you don't already have them or OID licenses). It no longer requires the advanced security option though. Engineering the solution was relatively straightforward once you get your head around the moving parts. The biggest challenge is the need to understand the new security model and to determine the best roles and groups etc for your users. It would also be possible to merely use Kerberos or SSL authentication as strong authentication<> (and SSO) for your individual database users.

Just putting out feelers to see what experiences folks have had with various single-sign-on packages. We have a mix of Oracle and MS SQL Server, and use Active Directory a bit for the MS stuff.

Thanks in advance,
