Nginx and TLSv1

TLS 1.1 and 1.2 require nginx be built against the 1.0.1 branch of OpenSSL, or the subsequent Libre and Boring forks of it. Odds are high that if you have servers running the old 0.8.x branch of nginx it is also running the old 0.9.8 branch of OpenSSL. As for whether or not it’s okay to run purely TLSv1 on the nginx 0.8.55 systems it depends on your willingness to accept the caveats that there are known and likely unknown horrors lurking in that old version of OpenSSL and the TLSv1 protocol itself is looking a bit rickety these days.
Personally, if I’m going to run a site requiring SSL, then I’m going to do it right and not be rolling out potentially compromised libraries/protocols/ciphers.
