HI All,
I am using Windows server 2012 R2 standard and hosted for the Gateway server. I ran IIS crypto as well , but still overall rating as " B " only.

This server supports weak Diffie-Hellman (DH) key exchange parameters. Grade capped to B

TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384 (0x9f)   DH 1024 bits   FS   WEAK
256
TLS_DHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 (0x9e)   DH 1024 bits   FS   WEAK
128


Can any one help on this.

It may be some apps but if after rebooting the machine and the DH 1024 or TLS 1.0/1 still exist from reading from iiscrypto then A may not be achievable. Maybe useful if you can share the finding so that we understand the B is due to what reason based on the online findings it stated
