As of October 15, 2020, the company will also no longer support TLS 1.0/1.1 in Office 365.

Microsoft has announced the end of support for insecure versions of the TLS protocol (1.0 and 1.1) in the company's Linux Software Repository. The measure will come into force on September 24 this year.

“In order to support modern security standards, will stop supporting downloads using the Transport Layer Security (TLS) 1.0 and 1.1 protocols as of September 24,” the company said.

After this date, connections using insecure protocols "will not work as expected." To download packages from the repository, organizations will need to use TLS 1.2 or a newer protocol version.

Organizations are also encouraged to remove all TLS 1.0 and 1.1 dependencies from their environments, if possible, and disable TLS 1.0/1.1 at the operating system level.

In addition, starting October 15, 2020, the company will stop supporting TLS 1.0/1.1 in MS Office 365 and will transfer all online services to TLS 1.2 and later.
