Group Managed Service Account be used for Windows Integrated Authentication?

When using web-tier authentication with integrated Windows Authentication, can a group managed service account be used for the account that is used to determine the groups in which users reside?

 

ESRI documentation states that one should use an account with a password that does not expire, which is not allowable by my organizations security policy with no exceptions.  In fact account expirations are barely over a month which would make maintaining an ArcGIS server a nightmare unless a group managed account could be used. ESRI docs say that a group managed service account can be used for the service account that ArcGIS server runs as and they provides a tool for doing so, but they do not say for the Windows Integrated Authentication.

 

Many Thanks!
