When using Apache in front of Domino you need the NE rewrite attribute

By Sean Cull | 1 day ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by Per Henrik Lausten

Over the last week or so I have been moving to using an Apache server in front of my Domino servers. This has been working really well until I had a problem with Mark Leusink’s Auto Login’s module. The solution is to use the NE attribute in the rewrite rules.

How to use TLS and SHA-2 certificates in Domino Web Service Consumer

By Sasa Brkic | 2 days ago | App Dev - Web | Added by Per Henrik Lausten

We have a solution that is used by thousands of public sector workers. The solution relies heavily on interacting with various web services provided by the tax authority, social welfare and health authorities and others. So we have a lots of Domino web service consumers and providers that require both SSL and authentication using certificates. Like many others we were aware of Domino's lack of support for TLS and SHA-2, but the web services providers were not insisting on them, so everything worked fine. Until last Friday, when one after the other turned off support for SSL v3. We could just watch as all our consumers stopped working. Despite the recent technotes (1418982 and 1687167) stating that the fix will be available in "the next several weeks", we needed a working solution immediately. We are familiar and have been using reverse proxies before. But it didn't seem they could be used in our case. A reverse proxy is often positioned in front of a server (provider), but in this case our Domino servers were clients (consumers). But, it turns out that you actually can use reverse proxy even in this use case.

Solving the SSL V3 / SHA-2 / TLS / MD5 / Poodle problem on Linux – Part 3 – Converting a Domino SSL certificate / Private Key to Apache

Note that the easiest option to install a verified SSL certificate into the Apache server is to buy a new one. However, if you have a copy of Windows XP handy you can convert your existing Domino SSL certificates to Apache certificates with the following scheme.

Domino SSL Fixes Coming: "Dis is good!"

By Russell Maher | 4 days ago | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

As Nicolas Cages tells Cher in Moonstruck when he's eating the steak she cooked for him... "'Dis is good." IBM released two technotes today regarding SSL and Domino. I do wish this would have happened sooner but I can tell you from a lot of life experience that "late" is truly better than "never." Domino peeps will be able to support TLS 1.0 and disable SSLv3 support (to protect themselves from POODLE without a proxy server) AND support for SHA2 SSL/TLS certificates is also coming. If you want to get to TLS1.2, you'll still need to proxy your Domino server but this is still a very good, very welcome announcement!

Tuning your XPages…

By John Dalsgaard | 1 week ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Ok this may promise a little more than I can hold. However, I just wanted to point the attention to some good advice that I had from Tony McGuckin (co-author of Mastering XPages) at IBM Connect 2014 in Orlando. This piece of advice surfaced through a review of a large application that I was building – and whether the architecture would “hold water” should the application become very popular.

XSP Libraries

By Toby Samples | 2 weeks ago | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Since version 8.5.2, Domino Developers have an amazing tool that I feel has been underused due to the massive mindset shift of developing Domino Apps to developing Java Apps. The Domino Server now has the capability of consuming OSGi Libraries. These libraries can provide any amount of Java Code and provide it to all the apps on your server or domain via replication. Part of the complexity has to do with the way these libraries created and deployed.
