Important Notes for This Release

Issues in RDP native-client connections! (2024-04-17)

We identified a major bug in PrivX 34.0 that affects native RDP client connections. If you use RDP native-client connectivity, we recommend against upgrading to this version. We are working on a point release to fix this issue.

For more detailed information about the issue, please contact SSH support.

RDP connections via the PrivX GUI work as intended.

Upgrade to 34 Only Supported from 32.x and later

Upgrade to this version is only supported from versions 32.x and later! To upgrade from previous versions such as 31.x, you must upgrade to 32.x first, before you can upgrade to 34.

Supported upgrade paths to this release are:

  • Upgrade with downtime: 32.x, 33.x
  • Zero-downtime upgrade: 33.x

For more information about upgrading from older versions, see Upgrade from Older Releases.

After this release, we provide security and stability fixes for PrivX 34.x, 33.x, and 32.x. Older versions are not officially supported. We recommend you upgrade as soon as you can if you are running an unsupported version.

Deprecation Warnings

PostgreSQL 11.x Support Ended

PostgreSQL 11.x has reached end of life since Nov. 2023 and official support for this version will be ended in future releases.

SHA-1-Certificate End of Support Imminent
Support for certificates signed with SHA-1 shall be dropped in future PrivX releases.

By default PrivX will not trust certificates with SHA-1 signatures unless they are self-signed. Re-enabling trust for such certificates requires setting the GODEBUG=x509sha1=1 environment variable for PrivX microservices and tools.

Practical attacks against SHA-1 have been demonstrated in 2017 and publicly trusted Certificate Authorities have not issued SHA-1 certificates since 2015.

CentOS/RHEL 7 support Ending

CentOS 7 and RHEL 7 will reach end of life on June 30, 2024. PrivX aims to end installation support for these platforms on the same timeline. Starting from PrivX 32, Rocky Linux 9 and RHEL 9 are officially supported. See Migrate from EOL Operating Systems.
