Discontinuation of encryption protocols TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 on Monday, 31 July 2018

Post by EPO / OPS Support » Tue Jul 24, 2018 8:24 am

Dear all

As mentioned in our previous OPS announcement, the encryption protocols TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 and older will be disabled as of 31 July 2018.

You should ensure that your client code establishes a TLS1.2 connection with the OPS server to avoid any disruption to your services.

There were two previous announcements related to this topic:
update-discontinuation-of-encryption-pr ... d-tls-7613 discontinuation-of-encryption-protocols ... poned-7686

Also, see the announcement on EPO's home page about internet browsers using TLS 1.2 and above protocols which will now also get implemented on 31 July: http://www.epo.org/service-support/upda ... 80614.html

Kind regards
OPS Support
