SQL connections to Remote Desktop Server

Hello,

 

We have a 2016 SQL server vm and a 2016 Remote Desktop Server Session Host vm running in Azure.  Are the connections from the RDS to the SQL encrypted ?  How can we know?

 

Thanks,

Joe

Check https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/database-engine/configure-windows/enable-encrypted-connections-to-the-database-engine?view=sql-server-ver15#to-configure-the-server-to-force-encrypted-connections 

If the RDS VM and the SQL server VM is in Azure, why do you want to encrypt the traffic flowing via your own vnet?

Kind regards,

Hello,

 

As part of a SAR Questionnaire, we are being asked this question "Is End2End encryption in place for data in-transit using TLS 1.2 at miniminal?"  I believe this is needed to prevent a man in the middle attack.  

 

Thanks,

Joe
