Google Chrome and Kerberos on Linux

November 24, 2012

So we all know you can enable Kerberos by adding the “–auth-server-whitelist” to the command line:

google-chrome --auth-server-whitelist="*"

But you can also make it permanent. Simply create a directory (in Linux) called /etc/opt/chrome/policies/managed/ and within it drop a json file such as example-corp.json with the following contents:

{ "AuthServerWhitelist": "*",
"AuthNegotiateDelegateWhitelist": "*" }

And voila, no need to fiddle the command line options every time you start Chrome. Plus as an administrator you can simply deploy that file automatically across all your workstations and not have to bother the users, things will just work.
