Configuring the Diffie-Hellman ephemeral (DHE) key size in Microsoft Server to 2048 bits

A situation arose that i had to toughen the Diffie-Hellman key size up. 

I was able to achieve that by following the below steps.

Step1: Navigate to this registry entry

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\KeyExchangeAlgorithms\Diffie-Hellman\ClientMinKeyBitLength

Step2: change the ClientMinKeyBitLength to 00000800

Happy Remediation.
