On 28 February 2018, HP IT removed support for the SSL v3.0 and TLS v1.0 security protocols when connecting the HP FTP site using the HTTPS protocol. As of the date of this advisory, only the following protocols are supported for accessing the HP FTP site:
NOTE: The ftp protocol will be removed at some point in 2018. At that time you will no longer be able to access SoftPaqs (and other files) using the ftp://ftp.hp.com link. You will need to modify your tools and processes to use either http://ftp.hp.com or https://ftp.hp.com instead. HP recommends that you begin now to make the necessary changes.
HP is taking these actions as part of an industry-wide move to help ensure customer security and privacy by discontinuing the use of less secure protocols.
