In light of the recent SSLv3 “Poodle” vulnerability, the Registry will be phasing out downward renegotiation to SSLv3.
The Registry currently operates on TLSv1. Accredited Registrars are advised to ensure that their software supports TLSv1 or higher.
A date of deployment for this update has not yet been finalised.
The OT&E servers will be updated in the next few days with SSLv3 disabled. Please contact the Registry should you have any issues connecting to these servers.
