Requested XAdES level for signature generation

This policy setting allows you to specify a requested or desired XAdES level in creating a digital signature.

If you enable this policy setting, you may specify the XAdES level in creating a digital signature. If the desired XAdES level is not reached, the last highest XAdES level reached is used if the level is higher than the minimum XAdES level (XAdeES-BES).

- No XAdES: XML-DSig - No XAdES
- XAdES-BES: Minimal XAdES (Default)
- XAdES-T: Will fall back to XAdES-BES if minimum XAdES level < XAdes-T
- XAdES-C: Will fall back to XAdES-T if minimum XAdES level < XAdes-C
- XAdES-X: Will fall back to XAdES-C if minimum XAdES level < XAdes-X
- XAdES-X-L: Will fall back to XAdES-X if minimum XAdES level < XAdes-X-L

If you disable or do not configure this policy setting, XAdES-BES will be used.

Supported on: At least Windows 7
