DTBC-0074 - Use of the QUIC protocol must be disabled.

Information

QUIC is used by more than half of all connections from the Chrome web browser to Google's servers, and this activity is undesirable in the DoD.

Setting the policy to Enabled or leaving it unset allows the use of QUIC protocol in Google Chrome.

Setting the policy to Disabled disallows the use of QUIC protocol.

Solution

Windows group policy:
1. Open the 'group policy editor' tool with gpedit.msc.
2. Navigate to Policy Path: Computer Configuration\Administrative Templates\Google Chrome.
- Policy Name: Allow QUIC protocol
- Policy State: Disabled
- Policy Value: N/A
