On November 30th, 2016, we’ll be deprecating some of the older security protocols (TLS 1.0,
TLS 1.1) used to make connections with FireText’s API & App.
Upgrading to TLS 1.2 will generally not involve any changes to your code, but may require that you update your operating systems, system packages, or language runtime libraries. (The exact methodology depends on your technology stack.)
We’d like to stress that TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and SHA-1 are widely considered to be weak and upgrading as early as possible is an important part of keeping your business secure. If you’d like more information about the topic, we’ve written up a blog post here.
If you have any questions about this change, or need help in upgrading your systems, please don’t hesitate to get in touch
