Hardening Windows Server 2008/2012 and Azure SSL/TLS configuration

SSL Labs A grade symbol
I guess it was long overdue for me to follow up on my Hardening Windows Server 2003 SSL/TLS configuration and Windows server 2003 vs 2008, SSL/TLS comparison posts. They were two of my very first blog posts and they still receive a decent amount of traffic. The world has fortunately moved forward since then, so in this blog post we’ll have a look at the default configuration of recent Windows Server (WS) versions in light of the latest recommendations from SSL Labs. We’ll keep the discussion at a reasonably high level, but I’ve included references to more in-depth information along the way for those who want to dig into the details. We’ll finish off with an announcement (Hint: it might have something to do with TLS configuration and Windows Azure).
