Panda solutions require SHA-256 encryption algorithms in order to ensure secure communication between the endpoint and the Panda servers. However, certain operating systems, such as Windows XP SP3 and Windows 2003, do not include such certificates and ciphering methods by default. To solve this issue, please ensure the following Microsoft's KBs are installed:
This KB adds support for the Windows Server 2003 cipher suites TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_128_CBC_SHA AES128-SHA and TLS_RSA_WITH_AES_256_CBC_SHA AES256-SHA AES. If it is not installed, please download the x64 or the x32 version accordingly.
IMPORTANT! Please note that the download files are not hosted on a Microsoft official server as it is no longer supported. Should you require them in any other language, please contact Microsoft.
This KB verifies the digital signature of the Panda installation packages and their corresponding files. If the computer does not have this KB, download it from here and install it.
IMPORTANT! The installation requires restarting the computer.
This KB adds SHA 256 support for Windows 7 and 2008. If it is not installed, download the x64 or x32 version from here.
Once the aforementioned KBs are installed, download and extract the contents of the file addcertsv1.3-signed.zip (the password is panda) and execute the file called AddCerts.exe with administrator privileges from CMD or from Windows Explorer.
NOTE: Windows 2008 R2 does not support TLS 1.2 natively, only by installing a patch available for certain winHTTP protocols. See article Update to enable TLS 1.1 and TLS 1.2 as default secure protocols in WinHTTP in Windows for further details.
