Discontinued Support for CBC Ciphers (TLS)

We are committed to providing you with the most secure experience using the Church Community Builder software. To better that security, on March 25, 2015 we will be discontinuing support for CBC ciphers.

Why?

Newer ciphers and encryption protocols offer better security and are not vulnerable to several known exploits. Although several older browsers and clients are only compatible with CBC ciphers, there are compelling upgraded ciphers that are much more effective at securing the communication traveling to and from Church Community Builder.

How will this affect me?

Users of modern browsers will not be affected, but if any client requests are made using an unsupported cipher, we will be unable to complete the secure handshake. These clients will need to be upgraded to support newer versions of TLS (Transport Layer Security).

Thank you for allowing us to serve you!
