SSL not supporting the TLS 1.2 protocol so tvOS/ iOS is unsupported

Pepijn 2015-12-14 19:58:52 UTC in Nimble Streamer


I was implementing Nimble and got another problem.

Since iOS 9 all apps are required to use TLSv1.2 SSL.
The Nimble server supports many protocols but not the TLSv1.2 protocol.
tvOS has the same policy.

Can you add the TLSv1.2 protocol to Nimble? It's very important because I can't use Nimble in my production environment until TLSv1.2 is supported.

By the way: the SSL integration in Nimble isn't very safe. Screenshot here:
You can test your SSL implementation on
I hope you can fix these SSL problems soon if that is possible.

Thank you again for all your help!

I forget to mention it in my last post but iOS 9 / tvOS apps also require forward secrecy.

Thank you

We're going to add support for TLSv1.2 in the next release, please stay tuned.

Thank you.

Please upgrade to Nimble 2.12.0-16, it should support TLSv1.2 protocol.

Thank you! TLSv1.2 is working.

Nimble still has no forward secrecy enabled. Hope you can fix this.

Thank you!

Have you tested your server with IOS 9 ?
Forward security is a complex term. Please give us more details about your concern. How did you test that FS not supported ?

I tested it using SSL Labs and using iOS and it didn't work.

I made an exception in my info.plist for forward secrecy on my live server so it works now.

Thank you for implementing TLSv1.2!
