Minimum TLS version#

Security · Azure Database for MariaDB · Rule · 2022_12

Azure Database for MariaDB servers should reject TLS versions older than 1.2.

Description#

The minimum version of TLS that Azure Database for MariaDB servers accept is configurable. Older TLS versions are no longer considered secure by industry standards, such as PCI DSS.

Azure lets you disable outdated protocols and require connections to use a minimum of TLS 1.2. By default, TLS 1.0, TLS 1.1, and TLS 1.2 is accepted.

Recommendation#

Configure the minimum supported TLS version to be 1.2.

Examples#

Configure with Azure template#

To deploy Azure Database for MariaDB Servers that pass this rule:

  • Set the properties.minimalTlsVersion property to TLS1_2.

For example:

Azure Template snippet
{
  "type": "Microsoft.DBforMariaDB/servers",
  "apiVersion": "2018-06-01",
  "name": "[parameters('name')]",
  "location": "[parameters('location')]",
  "sku": {
    "name": "[parameters('sku')]",
    "tier": "GeneralPurpose",
    "capacity": "[parameters('skuCapacity')]",
    "size": "[format('{0}', parameters('skuSizeMB'))]",
    "family": "Gen5"
  },
  "properties": {
    "sslEnforcement": "Enabled",
    "minimalTlsVersion": "TLS1_2",
    "createMode": "Default",
    "version": "10.3",
    "administratorLogin": "[parameters('administratorLogin')]",
    "administratorLoginPassword": "[parameters('administratorLoginPassword')]",
    "publicNetworkAccess": "Disabled",
    "storageProfile": {
      "storageMB": "[parameters('skuSizeMB')]",
      "backupRetentionDays": 7,
      "geoRedundantBackup": "Enabled"
    }
  }
}

Configure with Bicep#

To deploy Azure Database for MariaDB Servers that pass this rule:

  • Set the properties.minimalTlsVersion property to TLS1_2.

For example:

Azure Bicep snippet
resource server 'Microsoft.DBforMariaDB/servers@2018-06-01' = {
  name: name
  location: location
  sku: {
    name: sku
    tier: 'GeneralPurpose'
    capacity: skuCapacity
    size: '${skuSizeMB}'
    family: 'Gen5'
  }
  properties: {
    sslEnforcement: 'Enabled'
    minimalTlsVersion: 'TLS1_2'
    createMode: 'Default'
    version: '10.3'
    administratorLogin: administratorLogin
    administratorLoginPassword: administratorLoginPassword
    publicNetworkAccess: 'Disabled'
    storageProfile: {
      storageMB: skuSizeMB
      backupRetentionDays: 7
      geoRedundantBackup: 'Enabled'
    }
  }
}
