Overview

The Orion Agent Management Service (AMS) uses the Windows OS network stack, which by default accepts the SSL 3.0 and TLS 1.0 protocols, and ciphers using the RC4 algorithm. These protocols and algorithms are no longer considered secure, and SolarWinds recommends disabling these unsecure cipher suites on the Orion server.

Disabling these protocols and ciphers must be done on the system level, and changes may affect other applications running on the computer. If you run applications that require these protocols and ciphers to be enabled, make sure you test those applications with the new settings.

Environment

  • SAM 6.2.2 and later

Detail

See the links below for details on how to disable individual protocols and ciphers:
