PTV xServer internet – PTV Europe and World City Map cluster TomTom with API Version 1 – deactivation of TLS 1.0 and 1.1

We would like to inform you that we plan to deactivate TLS 1.0 and 1.1 on the PTV World and Europe City Map [TomTom] production cluster with API Version 1 on March 8th and 10th, 2022.

The following tasks will be completed in the scope of this maintenance:

March 8th, 2022:   PTV World City Map [TomTom] production

  • Deactivation of Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 and 1.1
  • Map update to PTV World City Map 2022.1T
  • PTV xServer update to newest xServer API version 1

March 10th, 2022:  PTV Europe City Map [TomTom] production

  • Deactivation of Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 and 1.1

The deactivation of TLS 1.0 and 1.1 is a major change that may have effect on your application.
More details regarding this topic can be found on our Developer Blog post about deactivation of TLS 1.0 and 1.1.

Please test your application on the already updated test system and report any problem immediately.  

Deactivation of Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 and 1.1 starts today!

PTV xServer internet will no longer be able to support TLS 1.1 or lower due to security updates in Azure. We informed you about this topic in the following blog post in April 2021.

PTV will start to deactivate the protocols with the upcoming map cluster updates.

Today the test systems of all our map clusters will support access with TLS 1.2 or higher only. We deactivated the access with TLS 1.1 or lower on all test environments for API Version 1 and API Version 2 alike.

Please test the access to the test system of your corresponding map cluster with your application and report any problem immediately.

The upcoming map updates for the map clusters will be announced as always via our PTV Developer Blog. You can subscribe to our blog to stay posted.

Next planned production updates with deactivation TLS 1.0 and 1.1:

08.03.2022 PTV World City Map Cluster (TomTom) with API version 1 (api-eu)
10.03.2022 PTV Europe City Map Cluster (TomTom) with API version 1 (eu-n)
22.03.2022 PTV America City Map Cluster with API version 1 (na-n)
26.04.2022 PTV World City Map Cluster with API version 2 (xserver2-eu)
28.04.2022 PTV World City Map Cluster with API version 2 (xserver2-us)

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 updated the production environments of our map clusters.

  1. If you still use Java 7 runtime and lower or .NET Framework version 4.5 and lower your action is required.
  2. Update your framework to a newer version to guarantee access to our service after the update on our map clusters.

Why do we do this: 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
