BolehVPN Security Upgrade incoming!

security

BolehVPN has been running for almost ten years now and in our continuous efforts to stay ahead in the security race, we feel that this is the right time to do a complete update and upgrade of our PKI security implementation to eliminate and reduce current and future threats in encryption technology.

This is a major update and would involve an update of keys and configurations. The whole process would approximately take a day to complete and we will give notice once a firm date has been decided on. We apologize for the inconvenience and will endeavour to keep disruptions to a minimum.

For those who want to know the technical details:

  1. Deployment of servers and certificate authorities (CA) public keys to RSA 4096 bits key.
  2. All new keys to users will be signed by the new CA. This will be effective upon new renewal or new orders.
  3. Old keys are still usable until June 2017.
  4. All user keys requests will use RSA 2048 bits keys.
  5. All servers will employ TLS 1.1 as the minimum TLS and this will effectively remove SSL 3.0 vulnerabilities. We wanted to deploy TLS 1.2 but due incompatibility with older operating systems, this is not possible at this time. However users are advised to check for compatibility if any issue arises.
