Altair® Panopticon


Windows Authentication

Panopticon Streams supports Windows authentication. Panopticon Streams will authenticate a user towards the local machine and verify its credentials with the existing and configured users on the Windows machine. The Windows authentication operates similarly to the Basic authentication function. Both the username and the password are sent to Panopticon Streams which they are then verified.

To enable Windows authentication, set this property in the  file:




Single Sign On is currently not supported with the Windows authentication. In addition, Windows authentication only supports authentication towards the local machine. This means that the machine where Panopticon Streams is deployed on also has to manage all of the users.
