There has been some changes in the security protocols that run a lot of our online and offline lives. Such services as online banking, secure connectivity, applications and emails will be affected. The changes relates to the Transport Layer Security protocol (TLS) and the retirement of versions 1.0 and 1.1 and the migration to 1.2+. TLS provides the encryption between devices and services (that Secure Socket Layer – SSL stuff) and is critical in providing best-in-class encryption, and to ensure our data is more secure by default.
What Specifically is Transport Layer Security (TLS)?
TLS is a protocol that provides end-to-end communications security over networks and the Internet. It is used with online services, communications and online transactions. It’s job is to prevent communication tampering and message forgery.
