Does Windows use LDAP or LDAPs or "StartTLS on LDAP" RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    our security manager would like to know if all Windows systems within the same domain/forest encrypted LDAP connections to the DCs or not.

    I am mainly asking for the following dialogbox:

    If I click the "Check Names"-Button, will the connection to the selected domain be encrypted?

    Our DCs have the needed certificate to secure LDAP connections, I tested this with ldp.exe.

    But will Windows use secure connections (LDAPS or STARTTLS) or will it be a plain unencrypted connection?

    Thanks in advance
