With SLES11 SP4 and SLES12 there is a support for TLS 1.x secure transport protocol. Can we get our GroupWise to support the same transport protocol level ?


We use OpenSSL version 0.98 in GroupWise 2012 and GroupWise 2014. That version of OpenSSL does not support TLS 1.x. We statically link the OpenSSL libraries in those GroupWise versions, so even if the server has a newer copy of OpenSSL we won't use it.

We updated the OpenSSL version used in GroupWise 2014 R2 (Cornell) to 1.0.2, and we changed to dynamic linkage in order to be able to take advantage of newer OpenSSL versions without the need to rebuild the GroupWise images.
