Tools

Kerbtray - This tool is used to display ticket information for a given computer running the Kerberos protocol.
KList
 - View and delete the Kerberos tickets granted to the current logon session.
Kerberos PowerShell Module - This module gives access to the Kerberos Ticket cache like klist.exe.
Kerberos Authentication Tester -

  • It shows what authentication method is used in a web request: None, Basic, NTLM or Kerberos
  • It shows the SPN used in case of Kerberos
  • It shows the HTTP status
  • It shows the HTTP Headers of the request.
  • It shows the version of NTLM used (v1 or v2)
  • It has a detailed view with a complete breakdown of the Authorization header. (Yep, went through all the RFCs to dissect the Kerberos and NTLM packages)
  • It shows your current Kerberos tickets and allows you to remove them (like klist.exe)
