Policy CSP - CredentialsDelegation


This is an ADMX-backed policy and requires a special SyncML format to enable or disable. For details, see Understanding ADMX-backed policies.

You must specify the data type in the SyncML as <Format>chr</Format>. For an example SyncML, refer to Enabling a policy.

The payload of the SyncML must be XML-encoded; for this XML encoding, there are a variety of online encoders that you can use. To avoid encoding the payload, you can use CDATA if your MDM supports it. For more information, see CDATA Sections.

Remote host allows delegation of non-exportable credentials

When credential delegation is being used, devices provide an exportable version of credentials to the remote host. This version exposes users to the risk of credential theft from attackers on the remote host.

If you enable this policy setting, the host supports Restricted Admin or Remote Credential Guard mode.

If you disable or don't configure this policy setting, Restricted Administration and Remote Credential Guard mode aren't supported. User will always need to pass their credentials to the host.
