Vista Server Cryptographic Protocols

Issue

Knowing the type of cryptographic protocols that Vista uses for communication security.

Product Line

TAC Vista

Environment

  • Vista Server
  • Xenta Server
  • SSL

Cause

Some systems will require to know the security protocols that Vista uses in order to ensure communication across their network. 

Resolution

At this time Vista only supports Secure Socket Layer version 3 (SSLv3) to ensure data integrity and security for network communications. More specifically the SSLv3 cryptography algorithm is:

SSL_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_SHA

 

Note: This security protocol is hard coded into the server and is not adjustable.
