Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
To help make LDAP authentication over SSL/TLS more secure, administrators can configure the following registry setting on a Domain Controller:
- Path: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/System/CurrentControlSet/Services/NTDS/Parameters
- Key: LdapEnforceChannelBinding
- DWORD value: 0 indicates disabled. No channel binding validation is performed. This is the behavior of all servers that have not been updated.
- DWORD value: 1 indicates enabled, when supported. All clients that are running on a version of Windows that has been updated to support channel binding tokens (CBT) must provide channel binding information to the server. Clients that are running a version of Windows that has not been updated to support CBT do not have to do so. This is an intermediate option that allows for application compatibility.
- DWORD value: 2 indicates enabled, always. All clients must provide channel binding information. The server rejects authentication requests from clients that do not do so.
- Before you enable this setting on a Domain Controller, clients must install the security update that is described in CVE-2017-8563. Otherwise, compatibility issues may arise, and LDAP authentication requests over SSL/TLS that previously worked may no longer work. By default, this setting is disabled.
- The LdapEnforceChannelBindings registry entry must be explicitly created.
- LDAP server responds dynamically to changes to this registry entry. Therefore, you do not have to restart the computer after you apply the registry change.
To maximize compatibility with older operating system versions (Windows Server 2008 and earlier versions), we recommend that you enable this setting with a value of 1. See Microsoft Security Advisory 973811 for more details.
To explicitly disable the setting, set the LdapEnforceChannelBinding entry to 0 (zero).
