Configure encryption levels on the Dameware client agent

Table of contents

Updated: September 19, 2017

Mini Remote Control uses the Microsoft built-in Cryptographic Service Providers and CryptoAPIs to encrypt credentials and other session negotiation (key exchange) information. Mini Remote Control uses multiple encryption algorithms and tries to negotiate the strongest keys possible based on what the local and remote system Crypto Subsystems can agree on.

You can choose to encrypt the following:

  • General data
  • Images
  • Simple File Transfers

You can choose your encryption levels in both the Mini Remote Control application and in the remote client agent. The encryption level selected on the client agent overrides selections made in the Mini Remote Control application. Choosing an encryption level enables you to comply with government regulations or your organization's security policy. It also provides a convenient default level of security for your remote computers.

  1. Ensure that the Mini Remote Control client agent service is running.
  2. On the General tab, click Sessions.
  3. Select Force Encryption.
  4. Choose an encryption level.
  5. Restart the service on the client.

If you want to force encryption levels on all your client agents, you can export the client agent settings to the remote computers using an MSI installer. See Install DameWare Mini Remote Control client agent service for more information.
