Finna to stop working with certain old devices and browser versions on 13 October 2020

The change is due to the introduction of a new security protocol. Few of the devices and operating systems affected are used in Finland. Public web services began the introduction of the new, more secure TLS 1.2 protocol at the beginning of 2019, and Finna will follow suit on 13 October 2020.

The most common operating systems/browsers with which Finna can no longer be used after the introduction of TLS 1.2:                          

  • Android 2.3.7  
  • Android 4.0.4
  • Android 4.1.1
  • Android 4.2.2
  • Android 4.3     
  • IE 7 / Vista       
  • IE 10 / Win Phone 8.0                                           
  • IE 8-10 / Win 7
  • Safari 6.0.4 / OS X 10.8.4
  • Safari 5.1.9 / OS X 10.6.8

Further information (in Finnish) on the introduction of the new security protocol in a Traficom press release.
