Hi List,

Does anyone know why the above URL is still using TLS V1.0.

I can’t connect to it unless I enable TLS V1.0 which I was under the impression that it should not be used anymore.

Thanks for any enlightenment.

Steve

  • Stop paranoia? Tlsv1.0 is not recommended when storing credit card data.

  • @Eero: IMHO you are missing some points here. There are more and more browsers that are unable to use SSL{2,3} as well as TLS1.0, not just disabled via config, but this decission was made at compile time. Newer Android and Apple-iOS devices for example.

    And the point is not that the site supports TLS1.0, but that it does not support TLS1.1 and/or TLS 1.2, and as such is incassessible to devices that ask for TLS1.1 as minimum for HTTPS.

    But that is for the admins/webmasters of the servers to resolve.

  • This is not true. it works fine with latest android and ios. I just tested it.

    Many sites are still using CentOS 5 and clones and cannot support tls 1.2
    and tls 1.1 without upgrade.

  • TLS 1.0 is still safe but the server should upgrade to allow TLS 1.2

    For my more sensitive servers I only allow TLS 1.2 because every modern browser supports it, so there isn’t a justification for still allow TLS
    1.0 as it is always possible there is a zero-day.

  • The latest version of Android is Marshmallow and currently is only installed on 2.3% of the devices out there:
    http://developer.android.com/about/dashboards/index.html

    You cannot just support the latest version of a client if your site is accessed by regular users out there.

    Then they might be forced to upgrade to a newer CentOS version. If you only run your personal blog then you can of course whatever you want but if you run a commercial site then the OS you can run depends on what the clients support and not the other way around.

  • actually that isn’t true either. Just install a newer version of firefox or chrome or whatever..then you are independent of the operating system in many cases.

    Something that is already on the TODO list, as that’s actually the only remaining CentOS 5 node, reason why it doesn’t support something higher than tls 1.0
    The whole setup will be reinstalled/migrated to c7 in the following weeks (time permitting).

    Just to close that thread : migration of the website/forums was announced and scheduled for today, and it went live earlier today. So now you should be able to use TLSv1.2
