The SSL/TLS protocols are the basis for secure communications on the web. They are also under constant attack. Security experts try to stay one step ahead of cyber attackers by studying the SSL/TLS protocols for vulnerabilities. The POODLE and Heartbleed vulnerabilities were the results of such studies. To help keep your integration safe from current and future security threats, we recommend that you follow the best practices outlined below.
Discontinue use of the VeriSign G2 Root Certificate
The public Certificate Authority industry is actively phasing out 1024-bit Root Certificates in favor of more secure 2048-bit Root Certificates. As a result, you need to discontinue use of SSL connections that rely on the older 1024-bit certificates, such as the VeriSign G2 Root Certificate.
Upgrade to SHA-256 SSL Certificates
SHA-1 is a 22-year-old cryptographic algorithm that is being threatened by increases in computing power. You need to transition from using SSL certificates that utilize SHA-1 to the stronger SHA-256 signing algorithm.
Use TLS version 1.2 or higher
PayPal has updated its services to require TLS 1.2 or higher for all HTTPS connections. TLS versions 1.0 and 1.1, as well as SSL versions 1.0, 2.0 and 3.0, are older protocols with known vulnerabilities that have been deprecated.
In addition, PayPal also requires HTTP/1.1 for all connections.
Let the protocol negotiate the highest version
Because Internet protocols change frequently in response to threats, we do not recommend that you hard code your integration to a specific version. Instead, we recommend that you allow the protocol to negotiate the highest version automatically.
Do not hard code specific ciphers
The following are several reasons why you should not hard code specific ciphers in your integrations:
- Ciphers such as RC4 and DES are widely used for TLS but have been shown to be insecure and vulnerable to attack.
- More advanced ciphers, such as AES and GCM, while among the strongest available today, may prove to be vulnerable in the future.
- Security exploits may cause PayPal to disable certain ciphers in the future.To minimize your vulnerability to current and future threats, we recommend that you do not specify particular ciphers in your integrations.
Allow Perfect Forward Secrecy
Perfect Forward Secrecy (PFS) is designed to prevent the compromise of a long-term secret key from affecting the confidentiality of past or future conversations. We recommend that you implement PFS in your integration.
With PFS implemented, any secure transmissions you have recorded in the past are still secure and cannot be compromised, even if a current key is compromised. The same holds true for future transmissions. Without PFS, if a single transmission is compromised, then all past and future transmissions could be compromised.
When implementing PFS, you need to allow the protocol to negotiate the highest version of TLS and never use hard coded specific ciphers. When PFS is enabled, the TLS protocol negotiation is taken care of on the PayPal side. Be sure not to restrict Diffie-Hellman Key Exchange (DHE) or Elliptic Curve Diffie–Hellman (ECDHE) ciphers in your integration.
A visual representation of PFS can be found here: PFS architecture diagram.
As much as we’d like integration to be a one-time, future-proof activity, the threat of cyber-attacks requires constant vigilance. PayPal is continuously working to protect our merchants and stay ahead of trends in Internet security. To reduce your vulnerability, be sure to check your integration against industry best practices on at least an annual basis. Following the minor steps outlined above can make a major difference to the security of your integration.
