For step-by-step instructions on upgrading to SPS6.10.0, see Upgrade Guide.
NOTE: Due to legal reasons, installation packages of the external indexer application will be available only from the SPS web interface. After SPS versions 6.4 and 6.0.3 are released, the installation packages will be removed from our website.
Starting from 6.10.0, Safeguard for Privileged Sessions (SPS) has changed to hardened SSL settings. As a result, during TLS session establishment, the following items are not considered secure:
With the hardened SSL settings, SPS will not connect to remote systems that are protected with weak certificates.
You cannot upgrade SPS if your configuration contains insecure certificates, keys or certificate chains in any of the following sections:
Note that the certificates and keys that are used for signing, timestamping, encryption or decryption are not affected by this change.
About feature releases
This is a feature release, which means that it will be supported for 6 months after the release date or 2 months after the release of a succeeding feature release (whichever date is later). It also means that if you are running a previous feature release (such as versions 6.1), you have 2 months to upgrade to version 6.10.0 if you want to keep running on a supported release.
For a full description of long-term-supported and feature releases, open the SPS product page on the Support Portal and navigate to Self Service Tools > Product Support > Product Life Cycle & Policies > Product Support Policies > Software Product Support Lifecycle Policy.
