|Data type||Range||Default value|
|REG_DWORD||0 | 1||1|
Determines whether outgoing secure channel traffic should be signed. This entry is used when negotiating the conditions of a secure channel with a domain controller.
Channel traffic security is determined jointly by the value of this entry and the values of RequireStrongKey, requiresignorseal and sealsecurechannel.
This entry is used only when the value of requiresignorsealis 0. Otherwise, the system requires that traffic at least be signed and does not consult this entry. Also, because encryption is more secure than signing, this entry is superceded when the value of sealsecurechannel is 1.
|0||False. Outgoing traffic on a secure channel need not be signed.|
|1||True. Outgoing traffic on a secure channel should be signed.|
Windows 2000 adds this entry to the registry when you install the system for the first time, or when you change the default value. If you upgrade from Windows NT 4.0 or earlier, the entry does not appear in the registry, but it is still in effect on your system.
