SSO Wrapping for Third-Party Credential Providers on Windows Endpoints

On Windows 7 and Windows Vista endpoints, the GlobalProtect agent utilizes the Microsoft credential provider framework to support single sign-on (SSO). With SSO, the GlobalProtect credential provider wraps the Windows native credential provider, which enables GlobalProtect to use Windows login credentials to automatically authenticate and connect to the GlobalProtect portal and gateway.
In some scenarios when other third-party credential providers also exist on the client, the GlobalProtect credential provider is unable to gather a user's Windows login credentials and, as a result, GlobalProtect fails to automatically connect to the GlobalProtect portal and gateway. If SSO fails, you can identify the third-party credential provider and then configure the GlobalProtect agent to wrap those third-party credentials, which enables users to successfully authenticate to Windows, GlobalProtect, and the third-party credential provider—all in a single step—using only their Windows login credentials when they log in to their Windows system.
Optionally, you can configure Windows to display separate login tiles: one for each third-party credential provider and another for the native Windows login. This is useful when a third-party credential provider adds additional functionality in the login tile that does not apply to GlobalProtect.
If you want to remove the GlobalProtect credential provider from your Windows client, execute the
GlobalProtectPanGPS.exe -u
command in the Command Prompt.
Use the Windows registry or the Windows Installer (Msiexec) to allow GlobalProtect to wrap third-party credentials:
