[External] : Re: Windows Credential Guard with MSLSA

I have no data about scenarios with credential guard.

Almost a decade ago, when I was working on KfW, I was able to use the MSLSA cache
with AllowTgtSessionKey=false, with the KfW logic essentially being "if the
application asks for a ticket, assume that if the LSA shows anything at
all, we have some credentials, so ask the LSA for the specific (session)
ticket we want".  (IIRC the triggering condition at the time was that
AllowTgtSessionKey stopped having an effect for users that are local
administrators, but I could be misremembering.)

This was of course on native Windows, not using a MSLSA library for linux.

Even with just the MSLSA configuration without the credential guard,  without the AllowTgtSessionKey setting in the KDC host registry key setting the MSLSA Kerberos configuration would not work.  Please let me know if you have a way around for this as well as the credential guard.  Please keep in mind that this a Linux with MSLSA Library for Linux and not windows
