HOWTO: Enable TLS1.2 with Zetadocs for NAV
This Zetadocs technical note applies to:
This technote describes how to enable the TLS 1.2 encryption protocol by adding a windows registry key.
To enable the TLS1.2 encryption protocol, a registry key must be added to the server running the NAV service. The steps to follow are:
- Open the Registry key editor (regedit in the windows search)
· The key to add is HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NETFramework\v4.0.30319: SystemDefaultTlsVersions.
- This key is a DWORD of value 1.
- Restart of the operating system.
Adding this registry key to 1 allows the operating system to choose the TLS version for applications targeting the .NET framework 4.6.1 such as Zetadocs for NAV 10.0.
Note: Some systems might require setting the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ Wow6432Node\Microsoft\.NETFramework\v4.0.30319: SystemDefaultTlsVersions instead.
For further information, please refer to the Transport Layer Security (TLS) best practices with the .NET Framework by Microsoft.
