I think this will resolve your issue - quoted from the following article:  

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc770833.aspx

To configure the server authentication and encryption settings for a connection:

1.  On the RD Session Host server, open Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration. To open Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, point to Remote Desktop Services, and then click Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration.

2.  Under Connections, right-click the name of the connection, and then click Properties.

3.  In the Properties dialog box for the connection, on the General tab, select the server authentication and encryption settings that are appropriate for your environment, based on your security requirements and the level of security that your client computers can support.

4.  If you select SSL (TLS 1.0), either select a certificate that is installed on the RD Session Host server, or click Default to generate a self-signed certificate. If you are using a self-signed certificate, the name of the certificate will display as Auto generated.

5.  Click OK.

You can also configure server authentication and encryption settings by applying the following Group Policy settings:

Set client connection encryption level
Require use of specific security layer for remote (RDP) connections
Server Authentication Certificate Template
Require user authentication for remote connections by using Network Level Authentication

These Group Policy settings are located in Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Windows Components\Remote Desktop Services\Remote Desktop Session Host\Security and can be configured by using either the Local Group Policy Editor or the Group Policy Management Console (GPMC). Note that these Group Policy settings will take precedence over the settings configured in Remote Desktop Session Host Configuration, with the exception of the Server Authentication Certificate Template policy setting.

Oops - forgot to say that you want to set the security to "RDP Security Layer."
