The CCC's new TLS 1.2 Security Protocol Requirements
Effective March 1st, 2019, the Copyright Clearance Center (CCC) will no longer support Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.1 protocol and any prior versions. Please update your server and/or client(s) BEFORE March 1st in accordance with the following considerations:
If you have not successfully upgraded to TLS 1.2 by March 1st, you will not be able to process payments, searches, or create orders via the “Permissions Gateway” or “RightsConnect” API. Self-hosted sites, you will need to alert your Ares System Administrator of these upcoming changes as soon as possible.
