Filed under: — By Aviran Mordo @ 9:47 pm

Microsoft plans to discontinue the use of the SSLv2 (Secure Socket Layer) protocol in the coming Internet Explorer browser refresh.

In its place, he company will fit the stronger TLSv1 (Transport Layer Security) protocol into IE 7 as part of an overall plan to improve the security and user experience for HTTPS connections.

Microsoft Corp. made the announcement on its official IE Blog where a call to action was issued for Web site owners to make the necessary configuration changes to permit the new protocol connections.

Eric Lawrence, a program manager on the IE team, also warned that the new browser will block navigation to HTTPS sites that present problematic digital certificates.
