SSO Menu

The SSO menu provides easy access to useful information about your account and functions of the extension. You’ll see it as a gray or black key in the menu bar on the top right. To get status information about your account, start by looking at the SSO menu icon and noting its color. If the key is gray, you’re not signed in to the extension. If the key is black, you’re signed in. After selecting the key, you’ll see the account you’re signed in with, as well as how many days you have until your password expires. If your password is close to expiring, you’ll get a notification telling you how many days you have until it expires. You can click the notification and change your password.

You must authenticate to the SSO extension, before you can change your password. You can begin this process in several ways: 

  • You’ll immediately be prompted to authenticate whenever you connect your MacBook to our Karnov Group network, either through VPN or from office network.
  • If you use Safari to access a website that accepts Kerberos authentication, or you use an app that requires Kerberos authentication, you’ll be prompted to authenticate.
  • You can select the Kerberos SSO extension menu, then click Sign In(make sure you are on VPN or Karnov Group network). 

You’ll be prompted for AD credentials. Enter your Active Directory user name and password. 

Click Sign In.

Change password

  1. Ensure that you’re signed in to the SSO extension. 
  2. Select the SSO menu and choose Change Password. You may also receive a notification that your password is expiring.
  3. Enter your current password, then your new password. Make sure to use a new password that meets password requirements. Click OK.
  4. After a brief pause, you’ll see a dialog telling you that the password change was successful.
