Using Windows Authentication

Commerce Server 2002

Commerce Server supports Windows Authentication to SQL Server. This is also known as Windows Integrated Security.

Windows Authentication is the recommended configuration for a Commerce Server installation. In Windows Authentication, Windows user accounts are used to authenticate to SQL Server. Commerce Server sets a tag in the connection string that tells SQL Server to use Windows Authentication when checking the security context of the user attempting to access a given database.

When you use Windows Authentication, user names and passwords are not stored in the SQL Server connection string, and are not changed when the SQL Server password is reset.
