Ceramic tile over vinyl floor

I would like to tile my kitchen floor. I have a one piece vinyl floor currently down. Can I tile right over the vinyl or would I have to rip it up to expose the OSB underneath? What about concrete board.Do I need to use this or can I tile directly onto the OSB?

Concrete underlayment board

Concrete underlayment board is recommended beneath tile. Any movement in subfloor will tend to result in grout failure and possibly cracked tiles. Install tile on vinyl at your own risk. Do not install over cushioned vinyl.
