    Default Alpha 5 V10 Application server and SSL/TLS

    I am currently running an Alpha 5 V10 Web applications on a Windows 8 Server. It is at present secured across the web using SSL/TLS 1.0
    Is it possible to upgrade to TLS 1.2 level of security with this version of Alpha 5?

    You should be running the latest release of the Alpha Anywhere Application Server in order to maintain the highest level of security. Alpha Five Version 10 is very old and simply does not have the latest security available as it didn't necessarily even exist at the time that V10 was developed.

    V10 used OpenSSL 0.9.8 to provide SSL/TLS encryption. OpenSSL ended support for 0.9.8 on December 31, 2015 so it isn't even possible to update the encryption independent of Alpha Five V10 releases any more. I strongly urge you to upgrade your server(s) as soon as is practically possible.

    Thank you Lenny for your prompt detailed reply.
    I enquired with one of the companies providing (selling) TLS certificates and their reply was that it would work. However, I was not fully convinced and decided to post a thread on this forum.

    Once again thank you.
