Konduit customers may have heard about the Heartbleed vulnerability in OpenSSL. Customers using Konduit’s SECURE Transaction Editor service can be assured that their systems are safe from the Heartbleed bug. Transaction Editor runs on the Windows operating system and uses Microsoft Internet Information Service (IIS) which comes with its own SSL encryption component called Secure Channel (i.e. SChannel), which is NOT susceptible to the Heartbleed vulnerability. All versions of Windows operating systems and IIS up to and including IIS 8.5 use SChannel.
