Chromium + Kerberos

Kerberos authentication for chromium can be enabled by creating the file /etc/chromium/policies/managed/chrome.json and setting the appropriate kerberos realm.

{
  "AuthNegotiateDelegateWhitelist": "*.example.com",
  "AuthSchemes": "basic,digest,ntlm,negotiate",
  "AuthServerWhitelist": "*.example.com"
}

Another possibility is, to start chromium with additional command line arguments.

/usr/lib64/chromium-browser/chromium-browser --auth-server-whitelist="*.example.com" --auth-negotiate-delegate-whitelist="*.example.com"

Note: this approach works only for /usr/lib64/chromium-browser/chromium-browser and not /usr/bin/chromium-browser.
