Support Ending for TLS 1.0 and 1.1 Protocols

January 28, 2020
On Mar. 23 CalNet fully depreciated TLS 1.0/1.1.

On Mar. 23, CalNet disabled TLS 1.0 and 1.1 protocols from being used to access CAS, Shibboleth, CalGroups, CalNet Account Manager, and LDAP.

TLS 1.0 and 1.1 are insecure and vulnerable to attacks which risk the integrity and authentication of data sent between client and destination. Disabling these protocols will mitigate these issues, adhere to campus policy, and to protect institutional data and IT resources.
