Security upgrade to HEIMS applications from 2 October 2018

As we advised in our July eNews, from 2 October 2018 the department will disable SSL 2.0/ SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0/1.1 and use TLS 1.2 instead for all HEIMS web applications and web services. These changes will affect the Education Portal, HEIMS Online, HEIMS Administration and HEIMS Web Services. This security upgrade will also apply to the reporting of Commonwealth Scholarships and Tertiary Admissions data through Web Services.

For more information on how to upgrade to TLS1.2 please refer to the "HEIMS Applications Upgrade – TLS Guide" available from the Systems and Access page. Also the documents that detail the technical specifications to use HEIMS Web Services for CHESSN allocation and entitlement checks, reporting Commonwealth Scholarships and Applications and Offers collection by Tertiary Admission Centres have been updated.
