    Kerberos????You can set up IBM Cognos TM1 Web to use Integrated
    Login with the Kerberos security protocol. This is the type of
    authentication works with TM1
    IntegratedSecurityMode=3.??????About this task????In Cognos TM1
    Web version 10.2, you must enter your Microsoft Windows
    authentication in the Cognos TM1 Web login dialog box. The login
    dialog box allows you to choose either native TM1 or Microsoft
    Windows login.????In order to run Cognos TM1 Web in a Kerberos
    environment, you must properly configure that environment for
    Kerberos to work with the Java? Runtime that is running the
    Cognos TM1 Web service.????Cognos TM1 Web version 10.2 uses Java
    Generic Security Service (JGSS) to support Kerberos Windows
    Authentication. This is the type of authentication you get when
    you use the TM1 IntegratedSecurityMode=3. Additional information
    on how to set up a Kerberos Windows Authentication to work in a
    Java environment is available at the following link:????IBM
