Signature Level

Determines the level of enhanced security support. Enhanced security includes the use of a message digest algorithm and a per connection/per request session state. Possible values include:

0: Disabled
1: Enabled but not preferred
2: Preferred
3: Required

Setting the value of this parameter to 2 or 3 increases security but decreases performance.

Supported on: Novell Client 2 SP3
