One of my customers requested to enable encryption on the RDP. For this he would like to enable the group policy option: “Set client connection encryption level” from Not configured to FIPS. (See attached screenshot for more information).
My question is this: is this configuration affect only the RDP/TS connection or it should affect other areas of the server?
If this server run IIS application should we encounter with any issue by enabling this setting?
I am trying to understand what is the risk of enabling this option other than “breaking” the RDP/TS?
