User story

As a PRTG user, I want PRTG to be more secure

Details of user story

I have proposed using PRTG as a replacement to Solarwinds Orion NPM. My security team has concerns about implementing PRTG as the current Web Server supports SSL encryption using OpenSSL libraries of the 1.0.2 branch as noted in the KB link below. 1.0.2 is considered unsupported since 1 Jan 2020. The current supported version is of the 1.1.1 branch. The 1.1.1 branch has been available since 18 Sept 2018.


Acceptance criteria

  • Criterion #1 Web Server encryption using OpenSSL 1.1.1
