SSL/TLS authentication

For conceptual information about certificates and Transport Layer Security (TLS)/Secure Socket Layer (SSL) connections and authentication, see Certificates Technical Reference and TLS/SSL Technical Reference in the Windows Server 2003 Technical Reference.

With Secure Socket Layer/Transport Layer Security (TLS/SSL), you have the ability to control what ciphers or cryptographic algorithms are allowed. By default, all ciphers can be used; however, you can control what ciphers your computer can use. For more information, see article Q216482, "How to Control the Ciphers for SSL and TLS," in the Microsoft Knowledge Base (

For instructions on how to map certificates to user accounts in Internet Information Services (IIS), see "Mapping Client Certificates to User Accounts" in the Internet Information Services (IIS) 6.0 documentation.
