The DirTeam.com / ActiveDir.org Weblogs now only offer TLS 1.2 and strong ciphers

Cryptography

As per today, the DirTeam.com / ActiveDir.org Weblogs are only available to browsers and integrated applications that communicate using TLS 1.2 and using strong cipher suites.

  

Our announcement

We announced this change three months ago, when Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 and Windows Server 2008 R2 went out of support.

 

Why we are doing this

We value your visits. We hope the information on this website helps you and your organizations to make the best choices in terms of identity and security. As a role model, we feel obliged to update our security, security algorithms through our plan-do-check-act cycle.

 

What others are doing

We based our initial decision to disable TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1 and weak cipher suites on the recommendations from several organizations.

Microsoft, Mozilla and Google are backtracking on there mutual decision to  disable TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 in their browsers, to allow for communications with government and healthcare websites in the light of the current crisis.

However, as a website, we don’t want to be part of the problem, but part of the solution.

Thank you,

DirTeam CTO
