2021-01-12 11:59:24 – In a first step, we will deactivate the old and weak TLS protocols 1.0 and 1.1 on our secondary site (api2) now on Sunday at 23:00 CET. Customers who are unsure of their systems if they still need these older protocols can then test the APIs located on the secondary site before the change is made on our primary site (www / api) on 31 January.
2021-01-11 09:25:55 – On January 31, 23:00 CET, we will start removing the support for TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1. This change will require a restart of our servers and we will be unreachable for a few minutes. We will start with our primary servers (www./api) and then do so on our secondary servers (api2).
The reason of the removal are that the older TLS protocols have deprecated and are considered as security risks in the Internet community.
It’s the most widely deployed security protocol used today and is used for web browsers and other applications that require data to be securely exchanged over a network.
TLS ensures that a connection to a remote endpoint reaches the intended endpoint through endpoint identity verification, and encryption.
