Upgrading App Store Connect (ASC) to use TLS 1.2


The Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol is an industry standard designed to help protect the privacy of information communicated over the Internet. All communication between an App Store Connect and the Industrial App Store is encrypted using TLS.

The latest version of App Store Connect uses TLS 1.2 (as recommended by Microsoft). However, earlier installations may still use TLS versions 1.0 or 1.1 (deprecated since Mar 2020).
