What is TLS?

What is TLS?

Transport Layer Security (TLS) and Secure Socket Layer (SSL) are cryptographic protocols that are used to encrypt data as it is being transmitted across a network or the internet. TLS and SSL are sometimes used interchangeably by users, but TLS is the protocol being used today whereas SSL is its deprecated predecessor. SSL version 3.0 was released in 1996, and TLS 1.0 released in 1999 as a replacement of SSL security constraints.


Why use TLS?

Your company or school may be shoring up their security posture to protect data of their users. For Mediasite users, securing your Platform servers, Video servers, and Recorders will require installation, configuration, and management of Security Certificates that encrypt transmission of your data.


What is TLS 1.2?

TLS 1.2 is currently the most used version of TLS and has made several improvements in security compared to TLS 1.1.

Depending on your configuration, TLS 1.2 may not be enabled on certain versions of Windows Server, SQL Server and the Mediasite Recorder.  The goal of this course is to walk you through enabling the TLS 1.2 protocol so the Mediasite application can begin using it.
