- The major browsers are moving beyond SSL3.0 and TLS1.0 .
- The PCI Security Council has declared an end-of-life date for these protocols to be considered sufficiently strong encryption.
We need to move away from these protocols, to use newer and stronger ones. On Windows servers, you can very easily disable these old protocols, and instead offer only TLS1.1 or greater. However, as noted elsewhere, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 and SQL Server 2012 (Standard, at least) both will not start if those lower protocols are disabled. However, there are a growing number of versions of MS SQL Server. There are SQL Server Standard, Business Intelligence, Enterprise, Express, Web, and Compact editions. And of course there is SQL Server 2008, 2012, 2014, and (in pre-release) 2016.
Which of these editions support or will support the use of only TLS1.1 or greater protocols?
