Re: Secure Remote Connections

What version of Windows, RDP client, term server, and domain do you have?

RDP 6.X and above supports 128 bit SSL (while not perfect certainly
better than earlier versions- See classic paper on older version here
http://www.oxid.it/downloads/rdp-gbu.pdf ).

You really should encrypt those laptops. Also an IPSEC tunnel would be better.

Saving creds may be able to controlled via registry or GPO but without
hardening the end point, meh

Are these system hardened at all, services, patch mgmt, host firewall, etc... ?

You mentioned you failed an audit. Audit for specific regulatory body?
Or just internal?

Just my 21/2 cents, I am sure others will have input 2

being remote devices and policy. Currently there are mobile devices
unencrypted, and with cheesy passwords out on the road using unsecured RDP
to connect back to our terminal server to use apps, My question is what is
going to be an easy to roll out solution to make this situation secure I
worry that one of these devices will get stolen or sniffed and the terminal
server is on the LAN with the rest of everything , it’s a flat domain… so> how to I allow remote connections securely 
without allowing them to save
there stupid RDP Connection credentials(set to autologin) on an unpassworded
desktop. Any ideas or suggestions I have one year to plan, implement and
change this broken system, over about 10 corps all releated and setup the
same….

Thanks as always to everyone,
