Hello Delphix Community, We are reaching out to let you know that TLS 1.0 and 1.1 support has reached End-of-Life (EOL) as of the 6.0.11.0 release for both virtualization and masking engines. The reason for this is to promote a security-centric product experience as TLS 1.0 and 1.1 are legacy protocols with known vulnerabilities.  What this means is that 6.0.11.0 will be the final release that will have TLS 1.0 and 1.1 as configuration options for the Delphix setup app. However, these options only apply for GUI and API calls and do not apply for masking and JDBC connections. Delphix encourages that customers move to TLS 1.2 or 1.3 for connection encryption ...
