Set RequireGSSAuth to True to enable GSSAPI authentication mode on the Media Server service port. In this mode, all connections to the service port must be authenticated using GSSAPI and the Negotiate HTTP authentication mechanism.

To use GSSAPI authentication, you must also set GSSServiceName, to define the GSSAPI service name that Media Server must use to identify itself.


This method provides an authentication requirement only. HPE recommends that you use it in conjunction with TLS/SSL to encrypt the authentication data.

You cannot use RequireGSSAuth with GSS ACI encryption (see ACI Encryption Configuration Parameters). If you configure both, Media Server does not start.
