Updated June 19, 2018


As of version 9.6.5, Kiwi Syslog Server users can now connect via TLS 1.2 to comply with new TLS standards. This article details the necessary steps to enable TLS 1.2 in Kiwi Syslog Server 9.6.5


  • Kiwi Syslog Server 9.6.5


Note: Kiwi Syslog Server 9.6.3 and earlier DO NOT support TLS 1.2.

To enable TLS 1.2 protocols in your KSS environment, complete the following steps:

  1. Start Kiwi Syslog Service Manager.
  2. Navigate to the Kiwi Syslog Server Setup under File > Setup.
  3. Select Inputs > Secure TCP.
  4. Select the checkbox next to Listen for secure (TLS) TCP Syslog messages.
    • To add a certificate click Select Certificate, and browse to the certificate location.
  5. Under Enabled Protocols, select the checkbox next to TLS 1.2.
    Multiple protocols can be selected.
  6. Click OK.

For more information about secure syslog inputs, see Inputs - Secure (TLS) Syslog.


Enable TLS 1.2 for Kiwi Web Access

In addition to enabling and applying the TLS 1.2 protocols in Kiwi Syslog Service Manager, you can also enable SSL support for Kiwi Web Access. Test your web interface by enabling TLS 1.2 only and attempting to connect to the web interface with TLS 1.0 or TLS 1.1.
