Dropping support for older TLS protocols


We have decided to drop support for SSLv3, TLS1 and TLS1.1 in FreedomBox. This will happen in version 21.9 which will reach all users in about 2 weeks time. This change should not effect you unless you are using a very old web client to access FreedomBox web server.

The following versions of client software will be needed to connect to FreedomBox web server:

  • Firefox: 27
  • Android: 4.4.2
  • Chrome: 31
  • Edge: 12
  • IE: 11 (Win7),
  • Java: 8u31
  • OpenSSL: 1.0.1
  • Opera: 20
  • Safari: 9

Thanks to Joseph Nuthalapati @njoseph for driving and implementing the change.
