Windows is security disaster !
"The Microsoft Windows Kernel Mode Cryptographic Primitives Library -- Cryptography Next Generation (CNG) -- is a general purpose, software-based, cryptographic module which provides FIPS 140-2 Level 1 cryptography."
FIPS 140-2 Level 1 the lowest, imposes very limited requirements; loosely, all components must be "production-grade" and various egregious kinds of insecurity must be absent.
Microsoft Windows 8.1, Microsoft Windows Server 2012 R2, Microsoft Windows Storage Server 2012 R2, Microsoft Windows RT 8.1, Microsoft Surface with Windows RT 8.1, Microsoft Surface Pro with Windows 8.1, Microsoft Surface 2, Microsoft Surface Pro 2, Microsoft Windows Phone 8.1, Microsoft Windows Embedded 8.1 Industry Cryptography Next Generation Cryptographic Implementations Version 6.3.9600
99% BAD HARDWARE WEEK: Windows storage server is thus the lovest level of security, unable even for physical tamper-evidence and role-based authentication.
