MWG NTLM authentication about CVE-2020-1472

Hi All

For CVE-2020-1472, we will enable secure RPC on DC and upgrade MWG to 9.2.8.

Is there any configuration change on MWG to support secure RPC?

Or it's better to change authentication method to kerberos?

there is no need to change to Kerberos. If you are using NTLM successfully I would not recommend to change it. When using Kerberos you need to make sure to translate group memberships, since they come in as ID rather than group names. Also the deployment needs to be carefully tested, so this is not a lightweigth change but a change of fundamentals.
