It's authenticated by whatever Windows decides to authenticate with,
which can be domain, AD, kerberos ticket, etc.

Windows thinks your username is not 'keys', and you haven't got a
cached login for that user.  It's best not to specify the username
with sspi as it allows the system to work it out (the exception being
XP Home which has a habit of being 'guest').
