Kerberos SSO to NW Portal via Safari on IOS 6/IOS 7 iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch


Dear experts.

I am trying to get the following SSO scenarios working for a Portal that is access via an Apple iPod Touch/iPad/iPhone device.

All scenarios work successfully using a secure VPN connection and basic authentication, however a, unsuccessful with

attempt so far.

The Portal is ultimately intended to be used as an SSO passthrough to SSO to UI5 applications running on ABAP WAS.
I have 2 test portals at my disposal and need to test the following

1) NW 7.3 EHP1 SP07 - Test 1 - Portal on Device landing page, Test 2 - Direct URL to UI5 iView

2) NW 7.0 SP2 Direct URL to "URL iView" pointing directly to UI5 application

We do not have any SAP NW SSO 1.0 or 2.0 and will not be using this product either.

Kerberos authentication is running perfectly well when accessing Portal via Internet Explorer and Chrome.

However I need to get it working to IO6/IO7 iPad/iPhone/iPod Touch safari browser.

The issue I am seeing at the moment is a blank screen. Authentication trace indicates partial authentication,

so no logon page is thrown

Please note I am aware that SAML 2.0 is the way forward, for now I need to leverage the technology at

my disposal.

Many thanks in advance for any tips and advice for resolving this
