The PCI Council Extends Transition to Secure Version of TLS to June 30, 2018

The PCI Security Standards Council is extending the migration completion date to 30 June 2018 for transitioning from SSL pci_logoand TLS 1.0 to a secure version of TLS (currently v1.1 or higher). 

These dates provided by PCI SSC as of December 2015 supersede the original dates issued in both PCI DSS v3.1 and in the Migrating from SSL and early TLS Information Supplement in April 2015.

For more information and answers to questions about new timelines, requirements and reasons for the adjustments, please review and share these PCI SSC resources:
