As a follow-up to our announcement regarding TLS 1.2 support at Microsoft, we are announcing that support for TLS1.1/TLS 1.2 on Windows Embedded POSReady 2009 and Windows Embedded Standard 2009 is now available for download as of October 17th, 2017. We’re offering this support in recognition that our customers have a strong demand for support for these newer protocols in their environment.
This update for Windows Embedded POSReady 2009 and Windows Embedded Standard 2009 will include support for both TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2. For application compatibility purposes, these protocols will be disabled by default in a manner similar to the TLS 1.1/TLS 1.2 support that was disabled by default in Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. After downloading and installing the update these protocols can be enabled by setting the registry keys described in KB4019276.
This update is being made available on the following timeline:
|October 17, 2017||Microsoft Catalog|
|January 16, 2018||Windows Update/WSUS/Catalog||Optional|
|February 13, 2018||Windows Update/WSUS/Catalog||Recommended|
