Enable support for a service or activity that uses 256-bit SSL encoding

Change the SSL cipher order so that AES256 precedes AES128 in the cipher list:

Tip: Check with an IT professional before performing the following actions.

  1. Type gpedit.msc at a command prompt to open your group policy editor.

  2. Choose Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Network > SSL Configuration Settings.

  3. Open the only item—SSL Cipher Suite Order.

  4. Select Enabled.

  5. The first item in the list is TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA

    The second item is TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA

  6. Change the first 128 to 256. Then move the cursor forward and change the 256 to 128.

  7. Move the cursor through the list and change the cipher priorities as in the above step.

  8. Close the group policy editor and reboot.
