TLS 1.2 Update
On April 23rd, 2018, the bank will be disabling the Transport Layer Security (TLS) protocol 1.0 and 1.1 on our web applications. In short, please update your Operating System and\or Internet Browser to its latest version to access these applications without issue.
Transport Layer Security (TLS) is a protocol that ensures that a connection to a remote endpoint is securely encrypted in order to provide privacy and data integrity. Cornerstone Bank web applications and application programming interface (API) connections use TLS as a key component of their security. TLS 1.2 is the most current version and is considered to be the most secure. TLS 1.0 and 1.1 are earlier, now less secure versions. DO NOT DISABLE TLS 1.0 OR 1.1.
As we enhance our security to align with industry requirements, you will need to verify if your operating systems (OS) or browsers support TLS 1.2 and upgrade if necessary. If you do not have a compatible OS version or browser after we disable the old versions, you will get a connection warning and\or error when attempting to access our online banking applications. Instructions for enabling TLS 1.2 are below.
To prepare for this change, you will need to ensure that you are using operating systems and browsers that support TLS 1.2. Below is a basic TLS 1.2 compatibility chart. Please contact the bank if you have any questions.
