If you upgrade to Release 14.10 or above from a new installation of Release 14.0, or if you previously configured the DEFAULT QOP previous to Release 14.10, the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml contains the LEGACY and DEFAULT QOP entries.

If you want to use the HIGH, MEDIUM, and LOW QOP entries (as the basis for QOP policy) you must import them into the TdgssUserConfigFile.xml.

<!-- To disable legacy (pre 14.0) security,
     uncomment the MechQop Value="0" directly below. -->
<!-- LEGACY QOP
<MechQop Value="0"/>
  -->
<!-- To update security to a common level,
    uncomment "DEFAULT QOP" and edit. -->
<!-- DEFAULT QOP
<MechQop Value="Default">
    AES-K128_CBC_PKCS5Padding_SHA1_DH-K2048
    AES-K192_CBC_PKCS5Padding_SHA1_DH-K2048
    AES-K256_CBC_PKCS5Padding_SHA1_DH-K2048
