Security

  • Ended support for TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1
    • Ended support for TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 for HTTPS on domain api.rev.ai. Any clients using these versions of TLS should upgrade to TLS 1.2.
    • Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 and 1.1 are security protocols for establishing encryption channels over computer networks. Rev AI has supported TLS 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 protocols since the first API release. However, due to evolving regulatory requirements as well as new security vulnerabilities in TLS 1.0, Rev AI now requires that clients use at least TLS 1.2 and recommends that customers disable TLS 1.0 and 1.1 at the operating system level where possible.

Security

  • Deprecated TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1
    • Ending support for TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 for HTTPS on domain api.rev.ai on 2021-09-08. Any clients using these versions of TLS should upgrade to TLS 1.2. Clients that fail to update to TLS 1.2 by the end date will not be able to interact with the API.
    • Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 and 1.1 are security protocols for establishing encryption channels over computer networks. Rev AI has supported TLS 1.0, 1.1, 1.2 protocols since the first API release. However, due to evolving regulatory requirements as well as new security vulnerabilities in TLS 1.0, Rev AI recommends that customers remove TLS 1.0/1.1 dependencies in their environments and disable TLS 1.0 and 1.1 at the operating system level where possible.
  • Updated security documentation
    • Updated security documentation to reflect the supported versions of TLS are now only TLS 1.2.
