Why is this necessary?

The service used by many institutions, including the Federation, for processing financial transactions, is upgrading their Transport Layer Security (TLS).

What is Transport Layer Security (TLS)?

It is an industry-wide requirement to ensure the highest level of security when processing all financial transactions. Today’s industry standard security features aren’t compatible with older systems and these new protocols will ensure the safety of your online financial transactions. Learn More
