AAF Improves security

As part of our ongoing improvements to security, we have turned off support for TLS1.0 and  1.1 on all AAF servers.


What is TLS

Transport Layer Security (TLS) is the protocol that provides secure communication when transporting data between your browser and AAF servers. This helps ensure that your communications, identity and web browsing are private and secure.


Why have we disabled TLS 1.0 & 1.1

Modern browsers removed support for Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 and 1.1 protocols in the first quarter of 2020.  AAF has disabled these now unused protocol options and requires TLS 1.2 or above.


Who does this affect

This change potentially affects users with old end-of-life browsers. Visit "Can I use TLS 1.2" to see if your browser and thus your access to the AAF will be affected.


All modern browsers / operating systems support TLS 1.2, so most users will see no change.


If you receive a connection error while trying to communicate with an AAF service, you should ensure that your browser is up to date.



The AAF recommends that you keep your computer's operating system and web browsers fully patched and up to date. If available, enable auto-patching options on your system.
