Disable-WSManCredSSP - Powershell 2.0 CmdLet
Microsoft Windows PowerShell is a command-line shell and scripting tool based on the Microsoft .NET Framework. It is designed for system administrators, engineers and developers to control and automate the administration of Windows and applications.
More than hundred command-line tools (so called "cmdlets") can be used to perform system administration tasks and Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI). These cmdlets are easy to use, with standard naming conventions and common parameters, and standard tools for piping, sorting, filtering, and formatting data and objects.
Short description Disables Credential Security Service Provider (CredSSP) authentication on a client computer. Syntax Disable-WSManCredSSP [-Role] <string> [<CommonParameters>] Description The Disable-WSManCredSPP cmdlet disables CredSSP authentication on a client or on a server computer. When CredSSP a uthentication is used, the user's credentials are passed to a remote computer to be authenticated. This type of aut hentication is designed for commands that create a remote session from within another remote session. For example, you use this type of authentication if you want to run a background job on a remote computer. The cmdlet is used to disable CredSSP on the client by specifying Client in the Role parameter. The cmdlet then per forms the following: - Disables CredSSP on the client. The WS-Management setting <localhost|computername>\Client\Auth\CredSSP is set to false. - Removes any WSMan/* setting from the Windows CredSSP policy AllowFreshCredentials on the client. The cmdlet is used to disable CredSSP on the server by specifying Server in the Role parameter. The cmdlet then per forms the following: - Disables CredSSP on the server. The WS-Management setting <localhost|computername>\Service\Auth\CredSSP is set to false. Caution: CredSSP authentication delegates the user's credentials from the local computer to a remote computer. This practice increases the security risk of the remote operation. If the remote computer is compromised, when credenti als are passed to it, the credentials can be used to control the network session. To disable CredSSP authentication, use the Disable-WSManCredSSP cmdlet.
