Defaults
Enabled by default on DC's, Disabled on Member Servers

Administrative Tools|Local Security Policy.
Local Policies  | Security Options | Microsoft Network Server
Digitally sign communications (always) properties set to enabled

you can also use group policy (the drawback is a 15% network overhead)

signing of packets will incur about a 15% overhead, if you need this to comply with an audit then that is what you need to do.
