New Security: SMB signing required by default in Windows Insider

Beginning in Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 25381 (Canary, zn_release) Enterprise editions, SMB signing is now required by default for all connections. This changes legacy behavior, where Windows 10 and 11 required SMB signing by default only when connecting to shares named SYSVOL and NETLOGON and where Active Directory domain controllers required SMB signing when any client connected to them.

This is part of a campaign to improve the security of Windows and Windows Server for the modern landscape.

Eventually, all Microsoft Windows 10-12 will go to this form of security.
