Authorize Net TLS 1.0 and 1.1 Disablement Date Extend
Previously Authorize Net might have sent you information about the plan to disable TLS 1.0/1.1 on the following date:
September 18, 2017
And today Authorize Net has sent another announcement that they have decided to extend their deadline to :
February 28, 2018
With this delay, it will provide you with additional time to change your VPCart Authorize Net gateway module to latest version compatible for TLS 1.2 (if you have not yet).
We would recommend you to use our Authorize Net DPM or Authorize Net SIM gateway that already meet TLS 1.2.
For merchants that already using DPM or SIM as payment gateway, then you will not need to worry about this TLS change.
Who needs to worry about ?
For merchants that are still using older shopping cart versions (eg v7, v650, v6, v5.5 etc.) and are still using Authorize Net AIM gateway, we would highly recommend you to upgrade to our latest VPCart version and use Authorize Net DPM or SIM as your payment gateway.
The Authorize.Net AIM gateway for our older versions of shopping cart is still using XML to communicate and it is not supporting TLS 1.2 yet, that is the reason for you to upgrade and use DPM or SIM.
If you have any questions regarding this, please post a helpdesk ticket to us.
