Released: 03 Dec 2018 by The DataWA Team

Summary

  • TLS is the acronym for Transport Layer Security; it’s a protocol that encrypts and authenticates secure connections across the web
  • TLS 1.0 and 1.1 will be formally deprecated
  • Apple, Google, Microsoft, and Mozilla have announced they plan to disable TLS 1.0 and 1.1 support in their browsers in the first half of 2020

  • ArcGIS Online will be upgrading to TLS 1.2 in February 2019
