TLS 1.1 support
With this release, IBM Personal Communications supports TLS 1.1 security protocol. This is supported by both IBM Global Security Kit (GSKit) and Microsoft CryptoAPI (MSCAPI).
The Security Protocol drop-down box on the Security Setup tab now enables you to select - TLS1.1, TLS1.0, or SSL only - as the security protocol for a session. If the host does not support the selected security protocol, Personal Communications will drop down to the next lower level of security protocol, and continue negotiations to establish a secure session. For example, if TLS1.1 is chosen from the Security Protocol drop-down box, and the host supports only up to TLS1.0, then the negotiation is carried out at TLS1.0.
FIPS mode is supported by both TLS1.1 and TLS1.0.
