Announcement: Two AES Ciphersuites (128/256 bits) are now supported

by [Published on 15 Aug. 2008 / Last Updated on 15 Aug. 2008]

Windows 2008 Server and Windows Vista were both released with support for SSL/TLS ciphersuites which use the AES symmetric encryption. Windows 2003 Server was released without these ciphersuites, and so IAG 2007 did not support them either. Recently Microsoft has released a hotfix for Windows 2003 Server which adds two TLS AES ciphersuites, one for 128-bit encryption and one for 256-bit encryption. Installing this hotfix on an IAG 2007 appliance will add support for the TLS AES ciphersuites. More information about the hotfix is available at
