TLS 1.2 Compatibility Test

Description

Payment gateways are now requiring commmunication via TLS 1.2. This plugin will test your webserver for compatibility to ensure there is no outage in your ecommerce application.

If your server is not able to communicate via TLS 1.2, you will be shown the appropriate steps to take to upgrade the server version of OpenSSL, PHP, or direct you to update the SSLVERSION of CURL.

The plugin currently offers testing via these API Endpoints:
* PayPal (https://tlstest.paypal.com/)
* How’s My SSL? (https://www.howsmyssl.com/a/check)

Testing against these API Endpoints should validate compatibility for other gateways and APIs, even if you are not using PayPal, for example, on your ecommerce application. However, we do plan to add more tests for API Endpoints provided by popular gateways.

Does What It Says

This plugin might be 2 years old (at the point of this review), but it still worked great. Simple and straight-forward. Did just what it claimed, which meant I had a very quick answer.

Quick test to reassure me

I had been struggling to find out if my payment gateway was compatible with TLS 1.2, as Authorize.net requires starting in Sept 2017. I have a WordPress site with sales through Gravity Forms, and a free SSL Certificate from Let’s Encrypt . Installing this plugin gave me an immediate answer. Thanks so much for this plugin.

Changelog

1.0.1

  • Added cURL version to the table with notes to upgrade if below 7.34.0.
  • Improved recommendations in the notes section.
  • Removed Google as an endpoint since it’s testing other things besides TLS 1.2 and doesn’t have a way to parse the response.
  • Removed the “rating” in the notes for How’s My SSL. How’s My SSL returns a lot of data. I’m trying to figure out how to share it.
  • Added link to the PMPro blog post describing TLS 1.2.

  • Added banner to repository page.
