What is happening?
The Intuit Developer Group is focused on continually helping our developers improve their security by using the latest security protocols.
By July 31, 2017, Intuit is requiring an upgrade to TLS 1.1 or above in order to align with industry best practices for security and data integrity. On July 31, 2017, we will disable the TLS 1.0 encryption protocol, which will prevent apps still using them from accessing Intuit and QuickBooks APIs and Services.
Additionally, Intuit is requiring an upgrade to TLS 1.2 by December 31, 2017. On December 31, 2017, Intuit will disable the TLS 1.1 encryption protocol.
When is it happening?
- July 31, 2017: TLS 1.0 will be disabled – all developers must upgrade to TLS 1.1 or 1.2.
- December 31, 2017: TLS 1.1 will be disabled – all developers must upgrade to TLS 1.2.
What is TLS?
TLS stands for “Transport Layer Security.” It is a protocol that provides privacy and data integrity between two communicating applications. It’s the most widely deployed security protocol used today, and is used for web browsers and other applications that require data to be securely exchanged over a network. TLS ensures that a connection to a remote endpoint is the intended endpoint through encryption and endpoint identity verification.
What do you need to do?
- July 31, 2017: If you are currently using TLS 1.0 to access the QuickBooks Accounting API, you will need to upgrade to TLS 1.1 or 1.2.
- December 31, 2017: You will need to upgrade to TLS 1.2.
