Recommended solution for making sure App Service Web app uses latest TLS version.
It is recommended that Azure App Service Web app uses latest TLS version. Please make sure if your template have "min_tls_version", it is set to "1.2".
For example:
azurerm_app_service": [ { "<app_service_name>": [ { "site_config": [ { "dotnet_framework_version": "v4.0", "min_tls_version": "1.2", "scm_type": "LocalGit" } ] } ] } ]

Run Rule Recommendation

  1. Log in to the Azure portal.
  2. Navigate to App Services.
  3. Click on the reported App.
  4. Under Setting section, Click on 'TLS/SSL settings'.
  5. In 'Protocol Settings', Set 'Minimum TLS Version' to '1.2'.
Remediation CLI Command:
az webapp config set --resource-group ${resourceGroup} --name ${resourceName} --min-tls-version 1.2
CLI Command Description:
This CLI command requires 'Microsoft.Web/sites/{app_name}/config/*' permission. Successful execution sets web app TLS encryption version to latest TLS version(i.e. TLS 1.2).
