AsdeqServer

TLS 1.0 and 1.1

As of Asdeq Server 6.3.0, TLS Protocol versions 1.0 and 1.1 are deprecated and will be switched off by default after upgrading the server.

Windows Clients and TLS v 1.2

The transition to TLS 1.2 and 1.3 will be automatic and seamless, however AsdeqDocs Windows clients on version 6.2.0 and below will need to be upgraded to 6.3.0 in order to connect to the server.

If it is not be possible to upgrade windows clients prior to upgrading the server, it is possible to temporarily re-enable TLS 1.0:

  • Navigate to https://<your-asdeq-server>/admin/SystemProperties
  • Locate the system property entry for aes.tls.ciphers, and click the edit button
  • Paste the following additional ciphers to the end of the cipher list:
        TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA,TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA,TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA
  • Navigate to the Network Settings page, check the TLSv1 checkbox, and click the Save Settings button

Please note that TLS 1.0 and these ciphers are no longer considered secure, and should be disabled as soon as windows clients are upgraded past 6.2.0


Job Management

The new AsdeqServer features many bug fixes and major expansion to the Job Management system.

  • Improvements to Server Functions and Job Management screens make them easer to use.
  • Source Location scanning & indexing may now be monitored and controlled from the Job Management screens.
