Is it possible to use Custom Credential Provider for Remote Desktop Connection in Windows 10? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I found a blog posted in 2009 with title "RDC and Custom Credential Providers".

    It say: In nutshell, you will get double logon when authenticating via RDP and using custom credential provider.  This behavior is by design.  You will not get double logon when using the Microsoft built-in credential providers, i.e. password and smartcard.

    Now 8 years past, is this behavior still the same in windows 10?

    Is it possible to create a credential provider for RDC in order to get SSO user experience on the target machine?

    I search a log of pages, but can't find a document which can clarify this issue. Hope somebody have a clue about it. Thanks ahead.
