Beginning May 30, 2020
, all Zoom clients and Zoom Rooms
must be on version 5.0 or greater to join any meetings, as 256-bit AES-GCM encryption during transit will be fully enabled for all meetings. Upgrade to the latest Zoom Rooms software in your Zoom Admin Portal
for both your room computer and your Zoom Rooms Controller as soon as you can. On May 30, Zoom will cut over all accounts to 256-bit AES-GCM encryption.
On June 30, 2020
, Zoom Rooms will have 256-bit AES-GCM encryption between Zoom Rooms Controller and Zoom Rooms enabled. Zoom Rooms Controllers (including Zoom Rooms Scheduling Displays) not running the minimum versions will no longer continue to function. Please update your Zoom Rooms Controller software to meet the following minimum versions either manually or by using Zoom Device Management (ZDM) in the admin portal
in order to ensure your Zoom Rooms are running properly by June 30, 2020.
Customers with third-party SIP and H.323 conference rooms that connect using Zoom’s Conference Room Connector (CRC) will not require any action as this change does not impact third-party device encryption. Zoom has upgraded the cloud-hosted room connector to ensure compatibility with all GCM meetings.
Customers with third-party SIP and H.323 conference rooms leveraging the self-hosted Virtual Room Connector (VRC) will need to upgrade the server software to the new version prior to May 30. Customers can update their VRC rooms today by following the instructions in our support article.
Please visit our 5.0 IT administrator page for more detailed instructions.
