Yes, that's the idea.  The new method using the official S4U logon
technique runs under the SYSTEM account.  No need to have a special
cyg_server account with potentially dangerous privileges anymore.

No.  Just like the old techniques using an LSA authentication module
or creating a user token from scratch, S4U login does not create
tokens with valid network credentials.  For some weird reason only
Microsoft knows about, you still need a password login for that.

The other method, logging in by stored password, as described in
https://cygwin.com/cygwin-ug-net/ntsec.html#ntsec-nopasswd3 still
works, though.
