M365 Changelog: TLS1.2 enforcement for Direct Routing SIP interface

Petri Staff

|

MC297438 – Updated December 14, 2021: Microsoft has updated the timing below to provide additional time to take action.

Microsoft is making some changes to Direct Routing SIP interface.

On February 1st, 2022 (previously January 3rd 2022), to provide the best-in-class encryption to Microsoft’s customers, they will begin retiring Transport Layer Security (TLS) versions 1.0 and 1.1 and begin obligating TLS1.2 usage for the Direct Routing SIP interface.

  • The move to TLS 1.2 is to ensure that Microsoft’s service is secure by default and in alignment with the rest of Microsoft 365 services as previously communicated (MC126199 in Dec 2017, MC128929 in Feb 2018, MC186827 in July 2019, MC218794 in July 2020, MC240160 in February 2021, and MC292797 in October 2021).

Note: If your organization has already taken steps to migrate from TLS 1.0 and 1.1, you can safely disregard this message.

How this will affect your organization:

To provide the best-in-class encryption to Microsoft’s customers, they will be retiring Transport Layer Security (TLS) versions 1.0 and 1.1 beginning February 1st, 2022 (previously January 3rd, 2022) and will begin forcing TLS1.2 usage for the Direct Routing SIP interface.

  • To avoid any service impact, please make sure that your SBCs are configured to support TLS 1.2 and are able to connect using one of the following cipher suites:
    • TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_GCM_SHA384 i.e. ECDHE-RSA-AES256-GCM-SHA384
    • TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 i.e. ECDHE-RSA-AES128-GCM-SHA256
    • TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA384 i.e. ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA384
    • TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA256 i.e. ECDHE-RSA-AES128-SHA256

What you need to do to prepare:

Review your SBCs and ensure they are configured to support TLS 1.2.
