Gets the Credential Security Support Provider-related configuration for the client.
The Get-WSManCredSSP cmdlet gets the Credential Security Support Provider-related configuration of the client and the server. The output indicates whether Credential
Security Support Provider (CredSSP) authentication is enabled or disabled. It also displays configuration information for the AllowFreshCredentials policy of CredSSP. When
you use CredSSP authentication, the user's credentials are passed to a remote computer to be authenticated. This type of authentication is designed for commands that create
a remote session from within another remote session. For example, you use this type of authentication if you want to run a background job on a remote computer.
The cmdlet performs the following actions:
- Gets the WS-Management CredSSP setting on the client (<localhost|computername>\Client\Auth\CredSSP).
- Gets the Windows CredSSP policy setting AllowFreshCredentials.
- Gets the WS-Management CredSSP setting on the server (<localhost|computername>\Service\Auth\CredSSP).
Caution: CredSSP authentication delegates the user's credentials from the local computer to a remote computer. This practice increases the security risk of the remote
operation. If the remote computer is compromised, when credentials are passed to it, the credentials can be used to control the network session.
To disable CredSSP authentication, use the Disable-WSManCredSSP cmdlet. To enable CredSSP authentication, use the Enable-WSManCredSSP cmdlet.
