Syntax

Enable-TlsSessionTicketKey
      [-Password] <SecureString>
      [-Path] <String>
      [-ServiceAccountName] <NTAccount>
      [-Force]
      [-Confirm]
      [-WhatIf]
      [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Enable-TlsSessionTicketKey cmdlet configures a Transport Layer Security (TLS) server with an administrator-managed TLS session ticket key, created with New-TlsSessionTicketKey, and configures the rule that uses the key for the application service account. For example, Internet Information Services (IIS) runs under System account so the ServiceAccountName parameter should be System.

TLS creates a session ticket by using the TLS Session Resumption without Server-Side State mechanism. For more information, see New-TlsSessionTicketKey or type Get-Help New-TlsSessionTicketKey.

Examples

Example 1: Configure a TLS server with a TLS session ticket key for the NetworkService account

PS C:\>$Password = Read-Host -AsSecureString
PS C:\> Enable-TlsSessionTicketKey -Password $Password -Path "C:\KeyConfig\TlsSessionTicketKey.config" -ServiceAccountName "NetworkService"

The second command configures the session ticket key for the TLS server. The command specifies the path for the configuration file on the TLS server, and specifies that the TLS session use the password stored in $Password to access the configuration file and configure the key for the specified service account.

Example 2: Configure a TLS server with a TLS session ticket key for System account

PS C:\>$Password = Read-Host -AsSecureString
PS C:\> Enable-TlsSessionTicketKey -Password $Password -Path "C:\KeyConfig\TlsSessionTicketKey.config" -ServiceAccountName "System"

The second command configures the session ticket key for the TLS server. The command specifies the path for the configuration file on the TLS server, and specifies that the TLS session use the password stored in $Password to access the configuration file and configure the key for the specified service account.
