Removing Support for TLS 1.0 and 1.1 Protocols

In October of 2018, all of the major browsers made announcements that they would be disabling support for the TLS 1.0 and 1.1 protocols in the first quarter of 2020. TLS 1.0 and 1.1 are old encryption protocols that are no longer considered sufficiently secure. In our on-going mission to keep our Crowdstack and Eve Community platforms secure we will be doing the same. Don't worry though, because we have supported TLS 1.2 for years and it is likely the protocol your browser has been using to access our platforms already.

When is this change happening?

We will be implementing this change on Tuesday, March 3rd, 2020.

How will this change impact you?

As long as you are using an up-to-date browser that supports TLS 1.2 it will not impact you at all. If you have any concerns that your browser does not support TLS 1.2 you can check by using this browser test: https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/viewMyClient.html

Under the Protocol Support section, you should see a message that says Your user agent supports TLS 1.2. If your browser does not support TLS 1.2 you will need to update it or install one that does.

Here are download links for the major browsers.
Chrome  -  Microsoft Edge  -  Firefox  -  Safari
