Key File Authentication

This policy setting allows you to enable or disable Key File Authentication between master and clients.

If you Enable this policy setting Key File Authentication will be enabled on the iTALC service

If you Disable this policy setting Key File Authentication will be disabled on the iTALC service

The default setting for iTALC is to be Enabled.

NB. If both Key File and ACL-based Logon Authentication methods are disabled then an iTALC Master will not be able to contact the client

When this policy is Enabled you must also configure a public and private key base directory. By default the keys are stored on the local client

Supported on: At least Windows Server 2003 operating systems or Windows XP Professional
