Re: Question About PA SSL vulnerability

Is this when accessing the web UI for managing the firewall?  If so, it's an easy fix:

  - Device tab --> Certificate Management --> SSL/TLS Service Profile

  - click on the profile that you use for the web interface (as specified under Device tab --> Setup --> Management sub-tab)

  - change the Min Version to TLSv1.2

  - click OK

  - commit the change


Run the vulnerability scanner again, and it shouldn't show up anymore.


If this is for something else, you'll need to provide more details.
