The TLS v1.0, v1.1 encryption protocol is planned to be disabled across Repsly endpoints, including internal services and APIs. The more secure protocol TLS v1.2 is to be used to make a secure connection.
We are requesting all of our Customers to enforce TLS v1.2 before December 1st, 2020.
What is TLS?
Repsly supports secure communication between services components using TLS.
TLS stands for Transport Layer security, it is designed to keep sensitive information like username, password and internal information safe from malicious attacks. It works by encrypting data and keeps data secure when transferred over a network. This guarantees privacy and data integrity or in other words that your data in transit cannot be intercepted.
Why are we upgrading to TLS v1.2?
Due to several weaknesses found in TLS v1.0 and TLS v1.1, many internet services are now starting to require the use of TLS v1.2.
TLS 1.2 is more secure than the previous cryptographic protocols such as SSL 2.0, SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0, and TLS 1.1 and in many cases is more efficient.
For highly secured communication it is strongly recommended for clients to implement this version of TLS.
What do I need to do?
Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to this question. Every business has a different configuration, and there is no general procedure that works in all cases.
At a high level, you will need to ensure that the following platforms and connections are compatible with TLS 1.2:
- Web Server
- .NET Framework
- Operating System, client applications sometimes default to OS configured TLS version.
