NJDEPOnline and SSL Vulnerability
Due to the recent discovery of the latest SSLv3 vulnerability (POODLE), on November 7th, the myNJ Portal & NJDEPOnline will no longer support the SSLv3 protocol. SSLv3 is vulnerable to attacks, such as POODLE, which could compromise information sent and received across the Internet. SSLv3 is one of several protocols used for HTTPS, a method that browsers use to access web sites and keep information private. Connections to myNJ & NJDEPOnline will still be protected by HTTPS but they will require the newer industry-standard TLS protocol instead. The vast majority of connections to myNJ & NJDEPOnline already use TLS, and disabling SSLv3 will prevent browsers from being tricked into negotiating a less secure SSLv3 connection when, for example, a user is at a WiFi hotspot or other location that could be controlled by an attacker.
What you should do:
If you use one of our recommended browsers below then there is no further action required on your part. However if you still use an older browser like Internet Explorer 6 then after November 7th 2014, you will continue to get a secure connection failed error message until you upgrade to one of our recommended browsers.
NJDEP Online suggests Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 9, or 10.0 in Compatibility Mode, or Mozilla Firefox version 3.5 or later to operate correctly. It may not work with any other web browsers such as Google Chrome or Apple Safari. Failure to upgrade to the correct browser version may cause data to display incorrectly and may disable some features.
To verify which version of Internet Explorer or Fire Fox you are using follow these directions. Open browser, click on "Help" then click on "About Internet Explorer" or "About Mozilla
firefox". A small information window will pop up and will give you the version currently installed on your PC.
