From March 1st, 2016, DataSift will be enforcing the use of SSL on all calls to

This enhancement will result in the following changes:

  • SSL usage will be enforced; all requests must be sent to
  • We will be updating our SSL certificate
  • will be moved to a new IP address;
  • SSLv3 will not be supported due to it being considered insecure
  • We will be deprecating insecure ciphers

As a second phase to this enhancement, we will be enforcing usage of TLSv1.2 only; this change will come into effect from May 1st, 2016. By default, each of the latest versions of DataSift’s official client libraries uses TLSv1.2.
