Microsoft announced the deactivation of Transport Layer Security 1.0 and 1.1
Announcement from Microsoft on September 30th, 2020:
Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 and 1.1 are security protocols for establishing encryption channels over computer networks. Microsoft has supported these protocols since Windows XP/Server 2003. However, due to evolving regulatory requirements as well as new security vulnerabilities in TLS 1.0, Microsoft recommends that customers remove TLS 1.0/1.1 dependencies in their environments and disable TLS 1.0 and 1.1 at the operating system level where possible. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/lifecycle/announcements/transport-layer-security-1x-disablement
PTV xServer internet with API version 1 will no longer be able to support TLS 1.1 or lower by the date September 30th, 2021 due to security updates in Azure.
PTV will start to deactivate the protocols with the planned map updates starting in October 2021. The updates will be announced via our PTV Developer Blog. You can subscribe our blog to stay posted.
- Your action is required if you are still using TLS 1.0 or 1.1 version, as the requests will not get through to our service after we update the map clusters.
- If you still use .NET Framework version 4.5 and lower or Java 7 runtime and lower your action is required.
- Update your framework to a newer version to guarantee access to our service after the update on our map clusters.
We recommend updating to NET 4.6 and above. You don’t need to do any additional work to support TLS 1.2, it’s supported by default. More detailed information regarding different NET. versions can be found here:
PTV Java Clients
We recommend updating to a Java 8 runtime environment for the PTV xServer clients because Java 8 runtime supports TLS 1.2 by default.
We like to inform you that we now provide a new cluster with PTV Europe City Map from Here. This cluster is available with PTV xServer API Version 1.
You can now find the new map cluster listed in our cluster overview on our PTV xServer internet Developer guide.
We provide an equal feature set like we already do for the PTV Europe City Map (TomTom) cluster.
You can find the following services available on this cluster:
We provide the following High Performance Routing (hpr) profiles on this cluster:
If you like to read more about hpr technology an profiles have a look at our High Performance Routing description on our PTV xServer internet Developer guide.

PTV xServer internet has a new Cloud Code Sample Browser. This new tool is optimized for the use with our cloud solution.
Use the gearwheel button to edit the configuration. Insert your token to test & discover PTV xServer in a live environment.
- Enter a term in the search box to find a sample, or choose one right away.
- Brief explanatory texts describe the content and the mode of operation of the sample in question.
- Start each sample in a new window or using tabbed browsing.
- Edit button opens the code editor. It contains the complete code of the sample, which can be changed.
- Saves changes to the code to update the sample.
- View button shows the sample again.
- Revert button restores the initial state of the sample at any time.
- Reset button in the configuration restores the initial Demo-Token.
Have fun playing with the new Cloud Code Sample Browser in a live environment.
If you like to use the previous version you can still access the Code Sample Browser based on the demo maps.
From the beginning PTV xServer internet provides geographic services for Europe, North America and Australia. Now PTV xServer internet also makes geographic services available for China and Japan.
Start immediately and use PTV xServer internet to find a location or address in China and Japan. Calculate simple routes and display them in the map. There are some differences in comparison to the standard xServer internet service:
- PTV xLocate Server supports basic geocoding, reverse geocoding and the query of speed limits.
- PTV xRoute Server supports basic routing, matrix routing and bulk requests. Toll and emissions are not supported.
- PTV xMap Server supports the rendering of the base map and additional content can be rendered on different layers client-side. PTV xServer add on AJAX Maps isn’t supported but you have the possibility to use WMS, Tile or PTV xServer .NET API at Eastern Asia Region.
See here the differences in comparison to the standard xServer internet services: http://xserverinternet.azurewebsites.net/doc/xserver-east-asia.html
You can use the following demos for a first insight.
China: Demo 1 Demo 2 Japan: Demo 1 Demo 2
