Description These updates are a collection of fixes in the following areas: application compatibility, operating system reliability, security, and setup. The updates contained in Windows 2000 Service Pack 1 are also included, and this is not considered a required upgrade. To determine whether to install Windows 2000 SP2, Microsoft recommends that customers review the Windows 2000 SP2 documentation found at its Web site. This service pack also upgrades your system to 128-bit encryption. It is not possible to disable or uninstall this feature. If you remove Windows 2000 SP2 after installation, your system will continue to use 128-bit encryption; it will not revert to 56-bit encryption.

Windows 2000 SP2 adds high-encryption support for all Windows 2000 encryption-based services, including Kerberos, Encrypting File System, RAS, RPC, SSL/TLS, CryptoAPI, Terminal Services RDP, and IPSec. High-encryption support improves the security of local data and online transactions, as well as any other content you share over networks or the Internet.
