Understanding SSLv3 Protocols

Using SSLv3 protocol to communicate with Site24x7 servers

Secure Socket Layer version 3 (SSLv3) is a security protocol that is used to secure application protocols such as HTTP, FTP, SIP, SMTP, NNTP, and XMPP. SSLv3 has "Poodle" vulnerability which makes it susceptible to security threats such as man in the middle attacks and as such any requests made to our server using this protocol will be discarded.

By default, all our agents use Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol for all communications. If your agent isn't already configured to use TLS protocol, you can force all HTTPS requests to use TLS or any other protocol by specifying them as -Dhttps.protocols in JVM arguments.

Example: -Dhttps.protocols=TLSv1 -javaagent:{full_path}/apminsight-javaagent.jar
