Affecting WebRTC now requires Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS)

Published: | Categories: Privacy & Security


Starting with Firefox 38, WebRTC requires one of the Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS) cipher suites to make communications safer. See the Mozilla Hacks blog for details. Due to an interoperability issue on the Facebook Messenger, the TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA suite has been temporarily re-enabled and will be disabled again with Firefox 39.
