TLS Security Requirements Update

This update will affect customers who are still using browsers that do not support the Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2 protocol. The TLS 1.2 protocol is needed to maintain data security. Customers who continue to use non-supporting browsers will lose access to your DIFS website following the update

Non-supporting browsers are listed below along with instructions for testing the support of your own browser.

How do I know if I am affected?

Most browsers have supported TLS for at least the last few years. A comprehensive list of supported browsers is available here:https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/clients.html
