Client computer

The claims-based authorization mechanism has the following requirements on the client computer side:

  • Domain-joined client computers running supported Windows operating systems are required for claims-based authorization when using device claims. For the list of supported operating system, see System Requirements in the Active Roles Release Notes.

    NOTE: This requirement does not apply to authorization scenarios that employ user claims only.

  • If the client computer does not request user or device claims upon user authentication, you must enable claim support on the client computer via Group Policy. The Group Policy setting that serves this purpose is located in Computer Configuration > Policies > Administrative Templates > System > Kerberos > Kerberos client support for claims, compound authentication and Kerberos armoring. Enable this policy setting in a Group Policy Object applied to the Organizational Unit that holds the computer accounts of client computers.

Managing Windows claims

Claims are statements about an authenticated user or device, issued by an Active Directory domain controller running Windows Server 2016 or later. Claims can contain information about the user or device retrieved from Active Directory.

You can manage claims in Active Roles under the Active Directory > Claim Types container of the Active Roles Console tree.

NOTE: For more information about Windows claims and claims-based Access Rules, see Management of Windows claims in the Active Roles Feature Guide.

Managing claim types

Claim types must be created in Active Directory to enable domain controllers (DCs) to issue claims to users or computers. Claims issued by the DC are sourced from attributes of user or computer accounts stored in Active Directory. Claim types specify the attributes from which the claims are sourced, and contain metadata required for using claims.

New claim types are created in the Claim Types container under the Active Directory node located in the Active Roles Console tree. If you have domains from multiple forests registered with Active Roles, then the Console displays an individual Claim Types container for each forest that has DCs running a Windows Server operating system supported by (see System Requirements in the Release Notes for more information). To identify the forest of a given Claim Types container, the container name includes the name (or a part of the name) of the forest root domain.

To create a new claim type

  1. Right-click the Claim Types container, and select New > Claim Type.

  2. On the Source Attribute page, select the desired source attribute for claims of this type.

  3. Review the auto-generated display name and description, and change them if needed.

  4. Under Claims of this type can be issued for the following classes, select:

    • The User check box to enable issuance of this claim type to users.

    • The Computers check box to enable issuance of this claim type to computers.

  5. Select the Set ID to a semantically identical claim type in a trusted forest check box if the claim type must match an existing claim type in a different forest. Type the claim identifier. Clear this check box to generate the claim identifier automatically.

  6. Select the Protect from accidental deletion check box to ensure an administrator cannot accidentally delete the claim type. Clear the check box to remove accidental deletion protection.

  7. Click Next to proceed to the Suggested Values page.

  8. Click the option you want for suggested values. Create suggested values as needed.

  9. Click Finish.

To modify an existing claim type

  1. Right-click the claim type you want to modify and then click Properties.

  2. On the Source Attribute page, view or change the source attribute, the display name, description, user or computer claim issuance options, and the option to protect the claim type from accidental deletion.

  3. Click the Suggested Values tab to view or change suggested values.

  4. Click OK to save the modified claim type.

To delete a claim type

  1. Right-click the claim type, then click Delete.

  2. Confirm the claim type deletion.

If you encounter a message stating that you do not have permission to delete the claim type, then modify the claim type and clear the Protect from accidental deletion check box. If this check box is cleared, verify that you have sufficient rights to delete claim type objects.

Enabling and disabling claim types

Windows claim types have two states: disabled and enabled. Disabled claim types are valid claim types, but are unavailable for use in production. Claims of disabled claim types are not issued by domain controllers and disabled claim types are filtered from view in the access rule condition builder. A claim type becomes available for production use once you enable it. Active Roles creates enabled claim types, and allows you to disable and enable claim types as needed.

To disable an enabled claim type

  1. In the Active Roles Console, navigate to the enabled claim type you want to disable.

  2. Right-click the claim type object and click Disable.

To enable a disabled claim type

  1. In the Active Roles Console, navigate to the disabled claim type you want to enable.

  2. Right-click the claim type object and click Enable.
