Using TLSv1.2 with webread

29 views (last 30 days)
I have been consuming a RESTful API for a secure web service my company supports using webread. However, they recently disabled TLSv1 connections for security reasons, and they now require TLSv1.1 or TLSv1.2. This seems to have broken my code. Is anyone aware of a way to change settings such that TLSv1.1 or TLSv1.2 would be used with webread or am I looking at trying to replicate this functionality using .NET?

weboptions allows you to add HTTP headers. You can add the HTTP header you require to weboptions with the 'KeyName' and 'KeyValue' pairs.
Alternatively, you can use 'curl' which allows you to specify directly the tls version.

TLS 1.2 support can be enabled in MATLAB versions which use Java 1.7 by adding the following Java startup option:
to a java.opts file and then restarting MATLAB.
Please refer to the following documentation page for more information on creating a java.opts file and specifying MATLAB's JVM startup options:
