The MutualAuthentication property tells the client whether to request that the server authenticate itself to the client. You can use mutual authentication to avoid man-in-the-middle attacks, which could allow the attacker to divert a network transmission to an unauthenticated third party.

Valid Settings

Setting Description
yes (default) The mechanism supports mutual authentication.
no The mechanism does not support mutual authentication.

Editing Guidelines

  • Edit this property on Vantage clients.
  • You must set MutualAuthentication to yes for KRB5 or SPNEGO.
  • If you edit the preset value of this property on a mechanism that does not currently support it, TDGSS ignores the edit.
  • Do not modify the TDNEGO setting for this property.
