Typhon Scheduled Server Maintenance
Due to scheduled server maintenance, Typhon Group services will be unavailable on Sunday, May 24 from approximately 12am to 8am. Typhon Group will be transitioning to new, upgraded servers at this time. Typhon is also increasing encryption levels and eliminating outdated protocols to comply with future regulatory standards and creating a more secure system. These changes will require you to use a “modern” browser that supports the TLS 1.2 encryption protocol. If you already have the latest version of your browser installed on your computer, you should have nothing to worry about.
We recommend you perform two checks on your browser
- Check your browser version and make sure you are using the latest version by going to https://whatbrowser.org .
- Make sure TLS 1.2 is turned on in your browser by going to https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/viewMyClient.html
The first section “Protocol Support” will confirm whether TLS 1.2 is active and supported in your browser.
If you have the latest version of your browser but TLS 1.2 is displaying as NOT supported, Windows users can open Internet Explorer, then go to Tools > Internet Options > Advanced, then scroll down to the bottom Security section and make sure TLS 1.2 is checked.
