Release notes

TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 no longer supported

We have removed support for TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 protocols. The only supported protocol on the CGC and the CGC API is TLS 1.2. If you are using a client that does not support TLS 1.2, please perform an upgrade to continue using the Cancer Genomics Cloud.

More about the TLS protocol

The TLS (Transport Layer Security) protocol is a cryptographic protocol that provides communications security in a computer network. It's a successor of the SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol that is now prohibited from use by IETF.

TLS provides both confidentiality and data integrity in transit between two communicating computers. TLS version 1.2 is a modern version of this protocol that enables highest possible communication security between your application/browser and the CGC.

The deprecated versions, TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1, have a number of known weaknesses, and it is in the best interest of our users to use the up-to-date version.

Supported clients

If you are using Internet Explorer, make sure that you upgrade your browser to version 11 or later. If you are using an up-to-date version of Chrome, Firefox or Safari - you are all set.

If you have any follow-up questions, feel free to contact the Seven Bridges Support Team.
