See KB article End of Availability (EOA) of Workspace ONE Access Cloud-Hosted KDC Service for Hybrid Deployments.
The KDC service hosted in the cloud can be used in Workspace ONE Access cloud-hosted deployment.
When you configure Mobile SSO for iOS authentication, you configure the realm name for the cloud hosted KDC service. The realm is the name of the administrative entity that maintains authentication data. When you click Save, the Workspace ONE Access service is registered with the cloud hosted KDC service. The data that is stored in the KDC service is based on your configuration of the Mobile SSO for iOS authentication method. The data includes the CA certificate, the OCSP signing certificate, and the OCSP request configuration details.
- The Kerberos principal name from the user's profile
- The subject DN, UPN, and email SAN values
- The device ID from the user's certificate
- The FQDN of the IDM service that the user is accessing
To use the cloud hosted KDC service, Workspace ONE Access must be configured as follows.
- The FQDN of the Workspace ONE Access service must be reachable from the Internet. The SSL/TLS certificate used by Workspace ONE Access must be publicly signed.
If you configure Workspace ONE Access with an external firewall, create an allow list with the appropriate IP addresses or URLs. See Adding Allowlist IP Addresses to Your External Firewall for Workspace ONE Access Services.
- An outbound request/response port 88 (UDP) and port 443 (HTTPS/TCP) must be accessible from the service.
- If you enable OCSP, the OCSP responder must be reachable from the Internet.
