TLS (and its predecessor SSL) are cryptographic protocols that provide authentication and data encryption for clients connecting with web servers. As new vulnerabilities are discovered, older cryptographic protocol versions are deprecated to maintain secure environments.

On Tuesday, January 21, 2020, Smarty will require clients to use TLSv1.2 or greater to connect with Smarty APIs without interruption. Clients using TLSv1.0 or TLSv1.1 will no longer be able to connect. Please refer to our documentation for more information: https://www.smarty.com/docs/cloud/requirements#ciphers

To see if your client software is able to properly connect, please use our test page: https://test-tls.api.smarty.com/


The industry in general is removing support for older TLS versions. Please refer to the following announcements from major browser vendors for more information:

We've got records of people described as "lawyers" going back to ancient Greece, Rome, and the Byzantines. These first individuals were folks who were asked to speak for the accused because those under scrutiny were—understandably so—shaken up by the situation. It went from someone who was your friend and did you a favor by speaking on your behalf to someone who knew all of the laws, and you'd hire them to speak eloquently for you.
