Powershell Authentication




Exactly how you execute Powershell? Which priviligies do you use? I guess you don't use Windows Credentials or it's because of UAC or "Run as Administrator" thing.

If I use Remote Powershell functionality -especially New-PSSession and Invoke-Command commands- Windows credentials doesn't work.

Could you explain how you do Powershell authentication process?

Interface Definition for EXE/BAT/CMD/VBS/PowerShell Sensors


For PowerShell scripts, make sure that they may be executed by either signing the files or changing the security policy for Powershell.exe accordingly.

Best Regards.
