Get the Credential Security Service Provider-related configuration.

      Get-WSManCredSSP [CommonParameters]


When CredSSP authentication is used, the user's credentials are passed to a remote computer to be authenticated. This type of authentication is designed for commands that create a remote session from within another remote session. For example, running a background job on a remote computer.

Caution: CredSSP authentication delegates the user's credentials from the local computer to a remote computer. This practice increases the security risk of the remote operation. If the remote computer is compromised, when credentials are passed to it, the credentials can be used to control the network session.
