PLS8-E: SNI support for TLS connections | Thales IoT Developer Community

June 22, 2018 - 2:53pm, 967 views

Hi all!

We are developing an IoT product for our customer.  As their backend is built on AWS, they heavily rely on SNI (server name indication) for load balancing, etc. From what i understand, disabling SNI on the backend would only be a temporary option, so this could really become a problem.

From what i read in https://iot-developer.thalesgroup.com/threads/https-tcp-connection-migration-sslv3-broke-out-system, SNI is not supported on the PLS8-E (which we use).

Are there any plans to implement SNI for future firmware versions of the PLS8-E. If yes, when can we expect this?

Can you think of any other solutions of this problem that don't involve disabling SNI on the backend?

Looking formward to your replies!

Best regards,

Alex
