Category: Home > Security > System
Windows supports accessing a remote registry via the Registry Editor across a network. The default setting allows for users to connect and modify data within the remote registry.
By creating the new key listed below, or modifying the existing key if it already exits, it is possible to control access to the registry remotely.
Use REGEDT32 to modify the permissions on the key below to suit your security requirements, the permissions on this key represent the remote access permissions to the registry.
System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurePipeServers\|
Disclaimer: Modifying the registry can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. We cannot guarantee that problems resulting from modifications to the registry can be solved. Use the information provided at your own risk.
