Announcing TLS 1.2 support in SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint 2010


Microsoft has added official support for the TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 security protocols in SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint 2010. These protocols are now supported in the following on-premis products and technologies:

  • SharePoint Server 2016
  • Project Server 2016
  • SharePoint Foundation 2013
  • SharePoint Server 2013
  • Project Server 2013
  • SharePoint Foundation 2010
  • SharePoint Server 2010
  • Project Server 2010

The official information on TechNet has been updated to reflect the support for these security protocols:

You don't need to install any SharePoint updates to achieve this support.  However, you may need to download other updates and make some configuration changes on your SharePoint servers, database servers, and client computers to fully achieve TLS 1.2 support.  Microsoft has created a guide for each version of SharePoint to explain the steps you'll need to take:

Be aware that the steps in above listed articles only allow SharePoint to support these newer TLS protocol versions. To actually use them, you must configure your web applications, database servers, etc., to use encrypted connections instead of unencrypted connections. For example, you must configure your web applications to use an HTTPS binding instead of an HTTP binding. Refer to the feature documentation for steps on configuring the feature to use encrypted connections.
