Configure native messaging whitelist

Allows you to specify which native messaging hosts are not subject to the blacklist.

A blacklist value of * means all native messaging hosts are blacklisted and only native messaging hosts listed in the whitelist will be loaded.

By default, all native messaging hosts are whitelisted, but if all native messaging hosts have been blacklisted by policy, the whitelist can be used to override that policy.

Example value:

Supported on: At least Microsoft Windows 7 or Windows Server 2008 family
