Enable TLS and SSL support in SharePoint 2013

SharePoint Server 2016
 

Applies to: SharePoint 2013, SharePoint Foundation 2013, SharePoint Server 2013

Topic Last Modified: 2017-07-18

Summary: This article describes how to enable Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol versions 1.1 and 1.2 in a SharePoint 2013 environment.

TLS protocol version 1.1 and 1.2 support is not enabled by default in SharePoint Server 2016. To enable support, you'll have to install updates and change configuration settings once in each of the following locations:

  1. SharePoint servers in your SharePoint farm

  2. Microsoft SQL Servers in your SharePoint farm

  3. Client computers used to access your SharePoint sites

ImportantImportant:
If you do not update each of these locations, you run the risk of systems failing to connect to each other using TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2. The systems will instead fall back to an older security protocol; and if the older security protocols are disabled, the systems may fail to connect entirely.
Example: SharePoint servers may fail to connect to SQL Server databases, or client computers may fail to connect to your SharePoint sites.

The following image shows the three step process necessary to enable TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 support on your SharePoint servers, SQL Servers, and client computers.

SSL and TLS support are enabled or disabled in Windows Schannel by editing the Windows Registry. Each SSL and TLS protocol version can be enabled or disabled independently. You don't need to enable or disable one protocol version to enable or disable another protocol version.

The Enabled registry value defines whether the protocol version can be used. If the value is set to 0, the protocol version cannot be used, even if it is enabled by default or if the application explicitly requests that protocol version. If the value is set to 1, the protocol version can be used if enabled by default or if the application explicitly requests that protocol version. If the value is not defined, it will use a default value determined by the operating system.

The DisabledByDefault registry value defines whether the protocol version is used by default. This setting only applies when the application doesn't explicitly request the protocol versions to be used. If the value is set to 0, the protocol version will be used by default. If the value is set to 1, the protocol version will not be used by default. If the value is not defined, it will use a default value determined by the operating system.

To enable TLS 1.1 support in Windows Schannel

  1. From Notepad.exe, create a text file named tls11-enable.reg.

  2. Copy, and then paste the following text.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Protocols\TLS 1.1]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Protocols\TLS 1.1\Client]
    "DisabledByDefault"=dword:00000000
    "Enabled"=dword:00000001
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Protocols\TLS 1.1\Server]
    "DisabledByDefault"=dword:00000000
    "Enabled"=dword:00000001
    
  3. Save the tls11-enable.reg file.

  4. Double-click the tls11-enable.reg file.

  5. Click Yes to update your Windows Registry with these changes.

  6. Restart your computer for the change to take effect.

To enable TLS 1.2 support in Windows Schannel

  1. From Notepad.exe, create a text file named tls12-enable.reg.

  2. Copy, and then paste the following text.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Protocols\TLS 1.2]
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Protocols\TLS 1.2\Client]
    "DisabledByDefault"=dword:00000000
    "Enabled"=dword:00000001
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\SecurityProviders\SCHANNEL\Protocols\TLS 1.2\Server]
    "DisabledByDefault"=dword:00000000
    "Enabled"=dword:00000001

  4. Double-click the tls12-enable.reg file.

  5. Click Yes to update your Windows Registry with these changes.

  6. Restart your computer for the change to take effect.

WinHTTP doesn't inherit its SSL and TLS encryption protocol version defaults from the Windows Schannel DisabledByDefault registry value. WinHTTP uses its own SSL and TLS encryption protocol version defaults, which vary by operating system. To override the defaults, you must install a KB update and configure Windows Registry keys.

The WinHTTP DefaultSecureProtocols registry value is a bit field that accepts multiple values by adding them together into a single value. You can use the Windows Calculator program (Calc.exe) in Programmer mode to add the following hexadecimal values as desired.

 

DefaultSecureProtocols value Description

0x00000008

Enable SSL 2.0 by default

0x00000020

Enable SSL 3.0 by default

0x00000080

Enable TLS 1.0 by default

0x00000200

Enable TLS 1.1 by default

0x00000800

Enable TLS 1.2 by default

For example, you can enable TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2 by default by adding the values 0x00000080, 0x00000200, and 0x00000800 together to form the value 0x00000A80.

To install the WinHTTP KB update, follow the instructions from the KB article Update to enable TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 as a default secure protocols in WinHTTP in Windows

To enable TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2 by default in WinHTTP

  1. From Notepad.exe, create a text file named winhttp-tls10-tls12-enable.reg.

  2. Copy, and then paste the following text.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\WinHttp]
    "DefaultSecureProtocols"=dword:00000A80
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\WinHttp]
    "DefaultSecureProtocols"=dword:00000A80
    
  3. Save the winhttp-tls10-tls12-enable.reg file.

  4. Double-click the winhttp-tls10-tls12-enable.reg file.

  5. Click Yes to update your Windows Registry with these changes.

  6. Restart your computer for the change to take effect.

Internet Explorer versions earlier than Internet Explorer 11 did not enable TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2 support by default. Support for TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 is enabled by default starting with Internet Explorer 11.

To enable TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 support in Internet Explorer

  1. From Internet Explorer, click Tools > Internet Options > Advanced or click Displays settings menu for Internet Explorer >Internet Options > Advanced.

  2. In the Security section, verify that the following check boxes are selected, if not click the following check boxes:

    • Use TLS 1.1

    • Use TLS 1.2

  3. Optionally, if you want to disable support for earlier security protocol versions, uncheck the following check boxes:

    • Use SSL 2.0

    • Use SSL 3.0

    • Use TLS 1.0

      NoteNote:
      Disabling TLS 1.0 may cause compatibility issues with sites that don't support newer security protocol versions. Customers should test this change before performing it in production.
  4. Click OK.

The SQL Server 2008 R2 Native Client doesn't support TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2 by default. You must install the SQL Server 2008 R2 Native Client update for TLS 1.2 support.

To install the SQL Server 2008 R2 Native Client update, see the KB article Hotfix for SQL Server 2008 R2

SharePoint 2013 requires .NET Framework 4.6, .NET Framework 4.6.1, or .NET Framework 4.6.2 to support TLS 1.2. Microsoft recommends installing the latest version of .NET Framework for the latest functionality and reliability improvements.

To install .NET Framework 4.6.2, see the KB article Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.2 (Web Installer) for Windows

To install .NET Framework 4.6.1, see the KB article The .NET Framework 4.6.1 web installer for Windows

To install .NET Framework 4.6, see the KB article Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6 (Web Installer) for Windows

.NET Framework 4.6 and higher doesn't inherit its SSL and TLS encryption protocol version defaults from the Windows Schannel DisabledByDefault registry value. Instead, it uses its own SSL and TLS encryption protocol version defaults. To override the defaults, you must configure Windows Registry keys.

The SchUseStrongCrypto registry value changes the .NET Framework 4.6 and higher encryption protocol version default from SSL 3.0 or TLS 1.0 to TLS 1.0 or TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2. In addition, it restricts the use of encryption algorithms with TLS that are considered weak such as RC4.

Applications compiled for .NET Framework 4.6 or higher will behave as if the SchUseStrongCrypto registry value is set to 1, even if it isn't. To ensure all .NET Framework applications will use strong cryptography, you must configure this Windows Registry value.

To enable strong cryptography in .NET Framework 4.6 or higher

  1. From Notepad.exe, create a text file named net46-strong-crypto-enable.reg.

  2. Copy, and then paste the following text.

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\.NETFramework\v4.0.30319]
    "SchUseStrongCrypto"=dword:00000001
    
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Microsoft\.NETFramework\v4.0.30319]
    "SchUseStrongCrypto"=dword:00000001
    
  3. Save the net46-strong-crypto-enable.reg file.

  4. Double-click the net46-strong-crypto-enable.reg file.

  5. Click Yes to update your Windows Registry with these changes.

  6. Restart your computer for the change to take effect.

.NET Framework 3.5 doesn't support TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2 by default. To add support for TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2, you must install a KB update, and then manually configure Windows Registry keys.

SharePoint 2013 is built on .NET Framework 4.x and doesn’t use .NET Framework 3.5. However, certain prerequisite components and third party software that integrates with SharePoint 2013 may use .NET Framework 3.5. Microsoft recommends installing and configuring this update to improve compatibility with TLS 1.2.

The SystemDefaultTlsVersions registry value defines which security protocol version defaults will be used by .NET Framework 3.5. If the value is set to 0, .NET Framework 3.5 will default to SSL 3.0 or TLS 1.0. If the value is set to 1, .NET Framework 3.5 will inherit its defaults from the Windows Schannel DisabledByDefault registry values. If the value is undefined, it will behave as if the value is set to 0.

SSL and TLS support are enabled or disabled in Windows Schannel by editing the Windows Registry. Each SSL and TLS protocol version can be enabled or disabled independently. You don't need to enable or disable one protocol version to enable or disable another protocol version.

The Enabled registry value defines whether the protocol version can be used. If the value is set to 0, the protocol version cannot be used, even if it is enabled by default or if the application explicitly requests that protocol version. If the value is set to 1, the protocol version can be used if enabled by default or if the application explicitly requests that protocol version. If the value is not defined, it will use a default value determined by the operating system.

The DisabledByDefault registry value defines whether the protocol version is used by default. This setting only applies when the application doesn't explicitly request the protocol versions to be used. If the value is set to 0, the protocol version will be used by default. If the value is set to 1, the protocol version will not be used by default. If the value is not defined, it will use a default value determined by the operating system.

WinHTTP doesn't inherit its SSL and TLS encryption protocol version defaults from the Windows Schannel DisabledByDefault registry value. WinHTTP uses its own SSL and TLS encryption protocol version defaults, which vary by operating system. To override the defaults, you must install a KB update and configure Windows Registry keys.

The WinHTTP DefaultSecureProtocols registry value is a bit field that accepts multiple values by adding them together into a single value. You can use the Windows Calculator program (Calc.exe) in Programmer mode to add the following hexadecimal values as desired.


 

DefaultSecureProtocols value Description

0x00000008

Enable SSL 2.0 by default

0x00000020

Enable SSL 3.0 by default

0x00000080

Enable TLS 1.0 by default

0x00000200

Enable TLS 1.1 by default

0x00000800

Enable TLS 1.2 by default

For example, you can enable TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2 by default by adding the values 0x00000080, 0x00000200, and 0x00000800 together to form the value 0x00000A80.

To install the WinHTTP KB update, follow the instructions from the KB article Update to enable TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 as a default secure protocols in WinHTTP in Windows

To enable TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2 by default in WinHTTP

  3. Optionally, if you want to disable support for earlier security protocol versions, uncheck the following check boxes:

    • Use SSL 2.0

    • Use SSL 3.0

    • Use TLS 1.0

      NoteNote:
      Disabling TLS 1.0 may cause compatibility issues with sites that don't support newer security protocol versions. Customers should test this change before performing it in production.
  4. Click OK.

.NET Framework 4.5 and higher doesn't inherit its SSL and TLS encryption protocol version defaults from the Windows Schannel DisabledByDefault registry value. Instead, it uses its own SSL and TLS encryption protocol version defaults. To override the defaults, you must configure Windows Registry keys.

The SchUseStrongCrypto registry value changes the .NET Framework 4.5 and higher security protocol version default from SSL 3.0 or TLS 1.0 to TLS 1.0 or TLS 1.1 or TLS 1.2. In addition, it restricts the use of encryption algorithms with TLS that are considered weak such as RC4.

Applications compiled for .NET Framework 4.6 or higher will behave as if the SchUseStrongCrypto registry value is set to 1, even if it isn't. To ensure all .NET Framework applications will use strong cryptography, you must configure this Windows Registry value.

Microsoft has released an optional security update for .NET Framework 4.5, 4.5.1, and 4.5.2 that will automatically configure the Windows Registry keys for you. No updates are available for .NET Framework 4.6 or higher. You must manually configure the Windows Registry keys on .NET Framework 4.6 or higher.

SSL and TLS support are enabled or disabled in Windows Schannel by editing the Windows Registry. Each SSL and TLS protocol version can be enabled or disabled independently. You don't need to enable or disable one protocol version to enable or disable another protocol version.

ImportantImportant:
Microsoft recommends disabling SSL 2.0 and SSL 3.0 due to serious security vulnerabilities in those protocol versions.
Customers may also choose to disable TLS 1.0 and TLS 1.1 to ensure that only the newest protocol version is used. However, this may cause compatibility issues with software that doesn't support the newest TLS protocol version. Customers should test such a change before performing it in production.

The Enabled registry value defines whether the protocol version can be used. If the value is set to 0, the protocol version cannot be used, even if it is enabled by default or if the application explicitly requests that protocol version. If the value is set to 1, the protocol version can be used if enabled by default or if the application explicitly requests that protocol version. If the value is not defined, it will use a default value determined by the operating system.

The DisabledByDefault registry value defines whether the protocol version is used by default. This setting only applies when the application doesn't explicitly request the protocol versions to be used. If the value is set to 0, the protocol version will be used by default. If the value is set to 1, the protocol version will not be used by default. If the value is not defined, it will use a default value determined by the operating system.
