The IESG has approved the following document:
- 'Deprecating Secure Sockets Layer Version 3.0'
(draft-ietf-tls-sslv3-diediedie-03.txt) as Best Current Practice
This document is the product of the Transport Layer Security Working
The IESG contact persons are Stephen Farrell and Kathleen Moriarty.
A URL of this Internet Draft is:
Secure Sockets Layer version 3.0 (SSLv3) is no longer secure. This
document requires that SSLv3 not be used. The replacement versions,
in particular Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.2, are considerably
more secure and capable protocols.
This document updates the backward compatibility sections of the TLS
RFCs to prohibit fallback to SSLv3.
Working Group Summary
This document has been actively reviewed by the TLS working
group. There is strong community consensus behind the document.
Are there existing implementations of the protocol? Yes, and
that's the problem;-) However, many deployments and
implementations have already started disabling SSLv3.
Joseph Salowey is the document shepherd.
Stephen Farrell is the responsible AD for this document.
