What is TLS?


Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a protocol for privacy and data integrity between two communicating applications. Its encryption and endpoint identity verification establish a secured connection between two networks. It’s the most widely spread security protocol and its used by a wide array of applications, including web browsers, requiring a secure data exchange. There have been 3 versions of TLS: 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2.

What’s new?

Beginning 2 December 2017 StoneShot will discontinue support for TLS 1.0. Moving forward, we’ll require TLS 1.1 or higher. Past the above-stated date, clients with TLS 1.0 encryption will not be able to access the StoneShot application.

How to avoid a service interruption?

Depending on your organisation’s structure and services you may or may not experience disruptions. Contact your organisation’s respective IT department and ensure a smooth transition.

Why the change?

StoneShot highly values security and we’re determined to put our clients’ data security above all else, hence the improved security protocols. Starting 28 October 2017, your data will be safer than ever before.
