Disable TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1 and weak certificates on IIS

I have written a few words about SSL certificates and modern browsers in my article back in 2020: SSL issues — how to deal with IIS and modern browsers requirements

In this article, I wrote about the application – Nartac Software IIS Crypto which can take care of your SSL configuration in IIS. However, it is not always possible to use an app, especially an “untrusted” one but you want to adjust settings in a quick way.

In such a case I use this short registry script – the text from the listing below should be saved to the REG file (i.e. “disable-insecure-ssl.reg”) and once saved – you can simply click on it and confirm that you want to implement these additions to the Windows registry.

Once implemented, you have to restart your server in order for changes to take effect. That’s it. Of course, this one is not as granular and not as good as adjusting settings using Nartac IIS Crypto, but it works and helps you automate such tasks in places you don’t want to install additional apps.
