Important upgrade implemented on MyAFRINIC


AFRINIC has implemented an important upgrade on MyAFRINIC. Following the announcement of browser vendors such as Mozilla, Google, Apple, and Microsoft to move forward with disabling  TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 as default options for secure connections. This will be effected after 10 March 2020. Thereafter, Firefox will only support TLS 1.2 and higher versions. The Internet Engineering Task Force through an Internet Draft has backed the effort. As a result, AFRINIC had to upgrade the TLS infrastructure on to TLS 1.2 which allows newer versions of Mozilla Firefox to work seamlessly with our member services portal. A collaborative effort among the Infrastructure, Application, Research and Innovation, and Member Services teams was crucial to action this upgrade. AFRINIC is committed to improving its services to members and continues to closely monitor for any potential issues.
