Setting up delegation between servers for Windows authenticated sites

Setting up delegation between servers for Windows authenticated sites

Recently, I heard that someone was having trouble setting up Windows Server delegation and I remembered that I wrote about it a few times several years ago in 2010. That blog and article does not exist anymore and there is little documentation on the process (most IT professionals will give up and use a different solution), so in the spirit of sharing at this time of year, here it is again. What is server delegation? When building a web application you can build your own user administration or use a security mechanism from another system (single-sign-on) or you can use Windows authentication in IIS (there are probably other ways too).
