Lucity iOS clients will require Forward Secrecy with SSL beginning Dec 5, 2016

As previously announced, the Lucity Mobile 2.0 application for iOS will require SSL with TLS 1.2 starting next week.  In addition, SSL must be configured to support (perfect) forward secrecy using the Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman (ECDHE) key exchange.  This requires cipher suites installed on Windows Server to support this key exchange.  The order of the cipher suites will also affect whether perfect forward secrecy is supported.

These requirements are due to new Apple Security Requirements which require all submitted apps to adhere to Application Transport Security (ATS) before the end of 2016.

If you have any questions or need help figuring out whether your servers will support the new requirements, please contact Lucity Support.

 

Lucity iOS Clients will require SSL (TLS 1.2) beginning Dec 5, 2016

Users of Lucity Mobile for iPad or iPhone with Lucity 2016 or Lucity 2016r2 will receive an update next week which requires TLS 1.2.  These new requirements are necessary to meet new Apple requirements.  There is no backdoor or work around.  Lucity Mobile Server must be deployed with SSL and must support the TLS 1.2 protocol. We announced this in a previous blog post but want to put out another warning to make sure everyone is ready!

Microsoft Windows Server 2008r2 does not enable TLS 1.2 by default.  If you have Lucity Mobile Server deployed on a Windows Server 2008r2, you must take manual steps to enable TLS 1.2 on these servers.  This article contains some details about the steps to enable TLS 1.2 on Windows Server 2008r2.

Please see the post discussing the forward secrecy requirement as well.  This is also a critical requirement for iOS clients.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Lucity support.

Implementation Team

  • Wow – this team is seeing growth and we aren’t stopping yet! Our stellar sales team continues to knock it out of the park, so much so that we are anticipating a need to bring in additional implementers (someone’s got to implement all of these awesome new members of the Lucity family – enter our fantastic Lucity Implementation Team!). If you know of someone whose technical prowess, organizational and people skills are a force to be reckoned with, please steer them to our job posting at http://www.lucity.com/pages/careersimpspec and have them get in touch.
  • We are in the midst of implementing a new Project Management tool here in the implementation team – Mavenlink Project Management software (mavenlink.com). We are going to be rolling this out soon to use for helping us keep our projects on track. This tool will help us with our project plans, schedules and overall project communication internally as well as with you, our clients! Be on the lookout for this should we begin working on an implementation with you in the future.
