Single sign-on allows users that are logged on to the Kerberos realm to subsequently logon to the Teradata Database without submitting a Teradata Database username and password.

There are two variations of single sign-on, which are based on the authorization method.

If a logon to Teradata Database does not include a username and password, the system assumes it is a single sign-on, and defaults to the KRB5 mechanism.
