I have a console application, which uses SharePoint object model to do some business operation, therefore it has been deployed on SharePoint server. Without sharing username/pwd, earlier we allow several users to access this console application by providing
remote desktop file (.rdp) file. This .rdp file (ver5.1) contains username and encrypted password. With recent version 6.0 of .rdp, it still prompts for password. You may argue that it is due to security constraint.
What is the best approach to allow more users to run this console application without sharing user credentials, without modifying the console application.
Thanks in advance
