  2. Configure these settings.
    Setting Description
    Require AES Encryption for Calls Specifies how to encrypt calls with other participants who support AES encryption.
    • Off—AES encryption is disabled.
    • When Available—AES encryption is used with systems that support it, but unencrypted calls from systems that don't support it are allowed. For multipoint calls, this means some systems might be connected through AES encryption while others are not.
    • Required for Video Calls Only—AES encryption is used in all video calls. Calls with systems that do not support it are disconnected. Audio calls using an attached SoundStation IP 7000 can connect.
    • Required for All Calls—AES encryption is used in all calls. Systems that do not support it are disconnected. Audio calls using an attached SoundStation IP 7000 are not allowed to connect, since these calls are not encrypted.
    Require FIPS 140 Cryptography When set, the system uses only FIPS 140-2-approved cryptographic modules. Protocols and ciphers such as SSLv2, SSLv3, and TLS cipher suites not approved by FIPS 140-2 are disabled.
    Disable TLS v1.0 Disables the TLS v1.0 application. By default, Disable TLS v1.0 is enabled in Maximum, High, and Medium Security Profiles, which means that TLS v1.0 is disabled. The default for the Low Security Profile is disabled, which means that TLS v1.0 is enabled.
