What is TLS 1.2?

What is TLS 1.2?

Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a computer network security protocol used to secure communications between web services. Its predecessor was the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) protocol, which many will probably be familiar with. Use of SSL was deprecated by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) back in 2015.

Several known vulnerabilities have been widely reported against the SSL protocol and earlier versions of TLS; neither are considered to have strong encryption protocols. To combat this, companies are now rolling out updates to ensure their web services only communicate using TLS 1.2.

So, what are Codeless Platforms doing about TLS 1.2?

  • As Applications Platform is a cloud-based technology it already uses TLS 1.2 “out of the bag”
  • The BPA Platform 2018 release includes TLS 1.2 support for:
    • File Management tool — when using an FTPS connection
    • Send Email (SMTP) tool — when used with Microsoft Office 365
  • The Web Service Connector v1.0 SR9 tool, has the option to use TLS 1.2 with both SOAP and REST services when authenticating with the connecting web server
  • Hotfix KB46432 has also been released for use in BPA Platform installations that make use of a Microsoft SQL Server store, and the Microsoft SQL Server Trigger tool
  • We are currently updating our Sage 50 Accounts Connector tool to include support for TLS 1.2

If you have any concerns or queries about running TLS 1.2, or about using a tool not mentioned above, contact your account manager or business partner in the first instance.
