 Disabling TLS 1.0 for client and server connections on Windows machines and removing 3DES (12/19/2017 5:00:00 PM)

The encryption protocol TLS 1.0 is nearing a point where it is end of life. Some compliance groups are starting to require disabling TLS 1.0 where possible.

In addition to disabling TLS 1.0, this cipher suite will be disabled due to it being listed as at risk by multiple security organizations:

In order to get to this new level of protection of only using TLS 1.1 and 1.2, we will disable TLS 1.0 for client and server connections on Windows machines over the semester break. This will be started for machines rebooting on December 19th after 5pm, so that we start after the grade submission deadline.

We will have a group policy that can re-enable TLS 1.0 on workstations or servers which still need this functionality due to vendors failing to update their web sites or software. Windows Vista and newer supported TLS 1.1 and 1.2, and it is now end of life, so most sites should be supporting TLS 1.1 and 1.2 as this was available nearly 10 years ago.

Those who manage Apache, Tomcat, and other non-Windows web servers will need to disable TLS 1.0 manually on their systems.
