1. Open Terminal Services configuration:
Start -> Administrative tools -> Terminal Services configuration

2. Right click “RDP-Tcp” on the right side and choose properties

3. Click Edit -> choose a already installed SSL -> OK
-If no SSL’s show up here, you can search for instructions on creating a self signed certificate

4. Set Security layer to “SSL”

5. Set Encryption level to “High” and hit OK

Make sure to adjust the settings for your local remote desktop client to allow for this authentication under Options >> Security. If you connect to various servers/computers you can use “attempt authentication” or “require authentication” if every computer you connect to has SSL configured for RDP.
