2.0 What’s New

Many of these improvements were made in direct response to suggestions from our customers. We thank you for your time and valuable input. We hope you continue to help us ensure that our products meet all your needs.

2.1 Security Enhancements

  • Expanded the null cipher list to include all defined null ciphers. Null ciphers are only proposed for the inner connection of a managed end-to-end encrypted connection.

  • Users can now configure connections to use both a SOCK or HTTP Proxy Server and TLS.

3.0 Resolved Issues


  • Addressed TLS 1.3 error handling when client authentication fails. Connections now disconnect with an error when client authentication fails.

  • Reflection for Secure IT Client for Windows now skips trusted certificates in the Windows store that fail to be parsed. This enhancement prevents unrelated trusted certificates from causing errors during server certificate validation.

  • Reflection for Secure IT Client for Windows no longer locks up if a timeout occurs during certificate validation for TLS sessions.


  • If the public key file is missing for an encrypted private key, the user is no longer prompted for the passphrase twice.

  • Host key entries with data that is not recognized are skipped in the known hosts file.

  • Resolved several issues with agent forwarding. These fixes address the addition of new algorithms and an updated user interface.

  • Fixed minor issues with Local Forward Tunneling encountered in the new user interface.

  • Corrected progress bar times for both uploads and downloads when using the SCP command-line client.

Other security issues

  • Child windows, when launched, are centered over the parent window when the parent is being shown in either a primary or secondary monitor.

  • The Reflection FTP Client text (fonts) show clearly on all Windows scaling settings.

  • Previously, Security Proxy authentication under certain conditions would fail. Token size now dynamically changes to prevent the buffer-size related connection issues.

  • The SSH configuration file requires a linefeed (LF) at the end of each configuration line. When storing certain settings the linefeed may not be added to the end of the configuration line. A fix was implemented so Reflection for Secure IT Client for Windows can now add a missing linefeed when the SSH configuration file is saved.
