aPod Software Update - Version 2.70
aPod Software version 2.70 (build 079453) was released on March 21, 2017.

Version 2.70 is a recommended update.  It addresses a misleading warning displayed in certain Browsers regarding the security of communications with the aPod controller.

Release Notes

Google and Mozilla are actively promoting the deployment of secure communications on the Web.  To this end, recent updates in the Chrome and Firefox Browsers display a warning on any web page that allows the entry of login credentials and does not use a connection encrypted by Transport Layer Security (HTTPS).  These warnings will appear on the aPod login screen on software versions prior to version 2.70 but they are not valid as they fail to recognize the encryption method used by the aPod System.  All aPod communications are encrypted using AES 128 (Advanced Encryption Standard with a 128 bit key) and a secure proprietary key exchange process.  All data is randomly scrambled prior to encryption so the data on every message is unique making pattern recognition impossible.  The aPod Controller uses a proprietary Real Time Operating System (RTOS) which is impervious to the tools used on Windows and Linux operating sytems.  Communications are automatically encrypted and encryption cannot be disabled.  Version 2.70 disables the misleading security warning which would be displayed in Chrome and Firefox.

Service Updates

Service updates correct minor issues or add specific enhancements to satisfy customer requests.  In most cases, a software update can be delayed until the next major release.
