Establishing an HTTPS connection with a system may use different protocols. This topic describes which protocols are supported by the various releases of Coveo for Sitecore and Coveo Enterprise Search.

 

Support in Coveo for Sitecore

Coveo for Sitecore releaseSSL 3.0TLS 1.0TLS 1.1TLS 1.2
January 2015 (3.0.891) and earlierYes---
February 2015 (3.0.955) to January 2016 (3.0.1226)YesYes**
Starting March 2016 (3.0.1266)YesYesYesYes

* The protocol is supported by installing an additional Sitecore package. See the the next section for instructions.

 

Installing the Enable_TLS_1_2.zip package

The Enable_TLS_1_2.zip package allows Coveo for Sitecore to use the TLS 1.1 and/or TLS 1.2 protocols when establishing an HTTPS connection.

  1. Download the package: Enable_TLS_1_2.zip.
  2. Open Sitecore's Installation Wizard (Sitecore Menu > Developers Tools > Installation Wizard).
  3. Upload and install the package.

 

The package will deploy two files: 

  • App_Config\Include\EnableTls12.config: This file registers a processor into the initialize Sitecore pipeline that then allows the TLS 1.1 and/or 1.2 to be used by the application.
  • bin\EnableTls12.dll: This assembly contains the processor.

 

The EnableTls12.config file can be modified to allow only TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2. Please note that the processor can either enable a protocol or leave the default; it will not disable any protocol.

 

For instance, to enable only the TLS 1.2 protocol, set the elements as follow:
