Scheduled Maintenance
Non-disruptive SAN Maintenance Apr 24, 01:00-03:00 EDT
During this maintenance window, LuxSci will be performing non-disruptive maintenance on the shared storage array network used by our Dallas Texas Enterprise Class environment. We will be adding additional storage devices. No impact on any live systems or services is expected.

LuxSci will be removing support for TLS v1.0 and TLS v1.1 from its services starting July 1st, 2019. This update will be a rolling change to all servers that will take place between July 1st and August 31st, 2019.

TLS v1.0 and TLS v1.1 are very old transport security protocols that have been succeeded by the much more secure TLS v1.2, which came out way back in 2008. All major web browsers released in the last 6+ years support TLS 1.2. Older web browsers may or may not support it (check your browser - https://www.projectdatasphere.org/projectdatasphere/html/tls/faq); however, less than 1% of web traffic across the world actually use the older protocols TLS 1.0 and 1.1.

TLS 1.0 and 1.1 are showing their age and security weaknesses have been cropping up for a while. Requirements for PCI compliance have mandated using TLS 1.2+ only since last summer and NIST best practices for TLS usage suggest moving away from older versions of TLS soon. LuxSci has been locking down dedicated customers that require use of only TLS 1.2+ for some time as well. In 2020, most major web browser vendors will be completely dropping support for TLS 1.0 and 1.1 as well. See: https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/tls-10-and-tls-11-being-retired-in-2020-by-all-major-browsers/

So, it really is time to give up the ghost. During the rolling maintenance period of July and August, LuxSci will be removing TLS 1.0 and 1.1 support on all dedicated and shared servers. This change affects:

* Web site hosting (i.e., what TLS versions your LuxSci-hosted web site will accept).
* Email sending via SMTP
* Email checking via POP and IMAP
* LuxSci's WebMail and administration portals
* LuxSci's Spotlight Mailer interface
* LuxSci's SecureForm for posting services
* Connections to LuxSci's APIs
* Email open and click tracking
* SMTP Forced TLS. We will only support forced outbound TLS with SMTP servers that support TLS v1.2+. We may still support opportunistic TLS with legacy SMTP servers; however, we will no longer consider such communications to be secure enough for compliance.

In general, most customers will not notice any difference. However, if you use old, legacy systems, you will want to be sure that you either (a) upgrade your systems, or (b) ensure that your systems will support TLS 1.2 for connections to LuxSci's servers.

For customers with dedicated servers that do not have specific compliance requirements (i.e., HIPAA or PCI), LuxSci can leave your server supporting TLS 1.0 and 1.1 through December 31st , 2019. If you require this extension, please contact LuxSci technical support.
