Event ID 1063 — Remote Desktop Services Authentication and Encryption

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 enhances the security of sessions by providing server authentication and by encrypting RD Session Host server communications. The RD Session Host and the client computer must be correctly configured for clients to make successful remote connections and for TLS to provide enhanced security. For example, a certificate is needed to authenticate an RD Session Host server when SSL (TLS 1.0) is used to secure communication between a client and an RD Session Host server during Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) connections.
