In response to the recently announced SSL CVE, we will be removing SSLv3 from the list of acceptable ciphers from our servers.
In our testing, this has no effect on our agent’s ability to submit its reports, nor on the auto-update process.
However, in our Apple Remote Desktop usage examples, we indicated that
--sslv3 should be used to download the installer to remote computers during installation.
Once this change is completed, the --sslv3 command will no longer function.
If you have saved the deployment script to your ARD admin console, you’ll want to replace --sslv3 with a TLS flag
-L allows the command to be redirected to s3 where the installers are housed.
-1 instructs curl to use TLSv1. (Only Yosemite allows the specification of TLS versions)
PS This is Allen’s favorite use of ARD EVER ;-).
