  1. Could you explain what “IBM HTTP server addon released with Domino 9 will be deprecated” means? Will it be removed? Unnecessary?

    • Fredrik Norling

      Thanks for reading my blog, the main reason why IBM bundled IBM Http server with Domino 9
      Was being cause the Domino Http engine only supported SSL 3.0 and it was only implemented for Windows.
      Now with the updates in late 2014 that brought TLS 1.0 and SHA-2 support to the Domino Http engine, the new announcement
      TLS1.2 plus more security features on all Domino platforms. The IBM Http server isn’t needed that’s why IBM deprecates it.
      And yes they will probably remove it but not in Domino 9.x

  2. I don’t get this. IHS/Apache is so much more capable than Domino’s HTTP task in other areas (redirect, virtual hosts) I’d wished they’d supported this on all other platforms too. Now they’re going back instead.

    So I’m looking forward to migrate all those server’s keystores we just moved to kdb back to kyr. Yay.
