Are the encryption levels in TS 2008 the same as TS 2003?

After reviewing the specs on RDP 5.4 and 5.3, they do contain the same encryption levels as RDP 6. These levels are:
  • Low: All data sent from the client to the server is protected by encryption based on the maximum key strength supported by the client.
  • Client Compatible: All data sent between the client and the server is protected by encryption based on the maximum key strength supported by the client.
  • High: All data sent between the client and server is protected by encryption based on the server's maximum key strength. Clients that do not support this level of encryption cannot connect.
  • FIPS: All data sent between the client and server is protected using Federal Information Processing Standard 140-1 validated encryption methods. Clients that do not support this level of encryption cannot connect.
