SAP BTP Transport Layer Security (TLS) Connectivity Support
Many customers have questions regarding the encryption of data in transit. SAP BTP uses encrypted communication channels based on HTTPS/TLS.
What is TLS?
TLS stands for “Transport Layer Security.” It is a protocol that provides privacy and data integrity between two communicating applications. It’s the most widely deployed security protocol used today, and is 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.The protocol is described by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) in Requests for Comments (RFCs). It evolves over time to support higher standards. More information can be found under https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transport_Layer_Security
SAP BTPs` servers support with beginning of December 2020 only the TLS 1.2 version of the TLS protocol.
We announce support of the upcomming TLS 1.3 version using the SAP BTP release notes.
