Remote Desktop Services Security & Encryption Question

Hi All - I need to give users access to an application over the Internet that contains sensitive information.  I am using Server 2008 R2, and remote desktop services. The specs that I have to adhere to require the use of 3DES or AES AND an open protocol such as TLS or SSL.

The TLS portion of this requirement is easy enough, however, I'm not sure about the 3DES/AES portion of this.  How can I use both of these to encrypt data over the internet?

Any helpful advice here?

If you enable "System cryptography: Use FIPS compliant algorithms for encryption, hashing, and signing" security setting the RDP-connection will be 3DES encrypted.
