Question:I have WinXP Home. Can I run IE 8 with TSL 1.2? Advise.
I have a Dell Dimension PC running XP Home, and also IE 8. I looked at the advanced tools menu and saw that it only offered TSL 1.1. I want better security that TSL1.1 which has been cracked,i want TSL1.2. Is there a freeware application I can down load easily,or a free Win. IE patch I can easily use? If so,tell me how,and if its complex,include key strokes,please. Feel free to elucidate for me if that seems required,I welcome education.

Hi -

The nearest answer to your question that I can find is ->
Supposedly Opera supports and use TLS 1.2 by default, Windows 7 with IE8 supports TLS 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2 while defaulting to 1.0, while XP with IE8 supports TLS 1.
If I understand http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issue ... l?id=90392 correctly Chrome uses NSS.

I hope that is similar to what you are looking for -

Regards -
