TLS is a cryptographic protocol that enables data to be authenticated and encrypted between different endpoints (e.g. when a user logs on to the BRIDGE back office).
In accordance with the recommendations of industry safety standards, we have decided to suspend support for TLS1.0 and TLS1.1 and to support only the most recent versions: TLS 1.2 and 1.3. Indeed, these latest versions of the protocol work with the most powerful algorithms and encryption.
End of TLS1.0 and TLS1.1 support = January 15, 2021
Check that the web browsers on your computer system are compatible with the new TLS1.2 or TLS1.3 protocol.
Your BRIDGE users who use a non-compatible web browser will no longer be able to access all the Back Office functionalities.
We recommend that you activate TLS 1.2 or 1.3 and remove the TLS 1.0 and 1.1 protocols.
The table below shows the minimum versions of browsers that support TLS 1.2.
In some browser versions the TLS 1.2 protocol is enabled by default, while in others it is necessary to enable it manually in the browser settings.
|Browser||TLS 1.2 enabled by default||TLS 1.2 to be activated|
Check that your PLC connectors are compatible with the TLS1.2 or TLS1.3 protocol.
If you use older generation API connectors, the automatic update of your POS data will no longer be ensured.
We invite you to contact your technical team to check that your API connectors are compatible with the new TLS1.2 or TLS1.3 protocol.
