Winhttp security risk? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a question regarding WinHttp.

    Up until now, we had issues using RDP due to a certificate problem, RDP could not check the revoke list.
    After some digging i come up with the solution to change WinHttp proxy from Direct access to our own standard proxy.

    In the progress i noticed it also helped some other RDP issues we had, with connectivety.

    But, before i request to have this rolled out as a GPO, i would need some feedback in regards of security.
    What would be the worst case senario by doing this?

    My network knowledge is not that great, but as i understand it, redirect the traffic over our proxy would probably raise the level of security right? 

    Thanks in advance
