Does IIS 7.0 on a Windows 2008 Server use 128 Bit Encryption by default?  There is no "Require 128-Bit Encryption" check box available anywhere, including in the "SSL Settings" section where it is in earlier versions of IIS.  This is also true of IIS 7.5 on Windows 7.

Thank you

Microsoft has an article on how to configure it:

They don't say whether or not it's by default.

There is a box to require 128bit encryption in IIS 7.0 on Server 2008, however that checkbox is not included in IIS 7.5 on Server 2008 R2 or Windows 7.

Starting with Windows 7/Windows Server 2008 R2 there are no crypto providers that work at less than 128bit cipher strength.
