BLS is updating the security for its websites. To access any BLS website after October 1, all users must use a browser and application that meets new security requirements.
For example, you can use any of the following web browsers:
We encourage you to update your browser to ensure that you have continued access to BLS websites. You can check if your browser is compliant at these websites:
Transport Layer Security (TLS) is an internet protocol that ensure secure communications. It’s the most common security protocol used for web browsers and other applications that require data to be securely exchanged over a network. TLS ensures that a connection to a remote endpoint is the intended endpoint through encryption and endpoint identity verification. TLS 1.0 has vulnerabilities.
After BLS disables TLS 1.0, any inbound or outbound connections to our websites that rely on TLS 1.0 will fail. Users must interact with BLS websites using TLS 1.1 and higher. Some older web browsers do not support TLS 1.1.
