How To Verify TLS Options in Windows


End of Life for TLS 1.0

June 30, 2018 is the deadline for payment processors to disable support for SSL/early TLS and to implement a more secure encryption protocol.  TLS 1.0 will no longer be supported as it will have reached its end of life.  TLS 1.1 or higher (TLS v1.2 is strongly encouraged) will be required in order to meet the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) for safeguarding payment data.  

Windows 10

Windows 7

Windows XP
