How to enable SSL V3 on Windows 2008? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all!

    I need to enable, only SSL V3 on my Windows 2008. I've seen a lot of articales about how to do it and found, that the way is to create value Enabled and to set 1 in following registry key: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Protocols\SSL.3\Server.

    In my case in regestry i have, only:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Protocols\SSL 2.0\Client

    What i have to do?

    Thanks!

  • If SSL 3.0 key does not exist, you can manually create it and enable SSL 3.0 according to the following steps:

    1.    Click Start, click Run, type regedt32 or type regedit, and then click OK.

    2.    In Registry Editor, locate the following registry key:

    HKey_Local_Machine\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders \SCHANNEL\Protocols

    3.    Right-click Protocols, click New, click Key and name it as SSL 3.0.

    4.    Right-click SSL 3.0, click New, click Key and name it as Server.

    5.    Right-click Server, click New, click DWORD (32bit) Value and name it as Enabled.

    6.    Double-click Enabled and make sure its value is 1.

     

    Backup your system state before proceeding.

    You'll need to create the SSL3 key, the Server key, and then the Enabled
    value.
