Subject Re: Patched 4.3.1 SystemVMs (was Re: git commit: updated refs/heads/master to 88acc9b)

Regarding the configurations in httpd.conf, they don't apply to apache server running in our
system vms.

We need to put the configuration in “/etc/apache2/mods-enabled/ssl.conf”, if you see apache2.conf
it includes ssl.conf “Include mods-enabled/*.conf" not httpd.conf.

I tried using namp, it worked if we put the configuration in ssl.conf.

1. The article is just a reference, but if we use a known security scanner the combination
of ssl protocol and cipher suites used identifies these vulnerabilities on a given machine
with available TLS lower versions, check for some thing like beast attack.

2. The conf file changes done will not countermeasure the sytemplate vuln issue i believe,
we may still wanted to confirm that its indeed the httpd.conf which needs to be changed for
apache2 as well for the particular template fix.

2. TLSv1.2 is the latest to be used and suggested default, ssl protocol and the ciphers we
use leads to vulnerability, the settings for these as well should be available in similar
config file. In our code, search for TLS leads to usage at places, and assumption is that
it should negotiate the protocol version from configured and available latest version to least,
so if TLSv1.2 is configured on server and client supports it, then it should work.

Not sure how this applies for us, we use newer openssl version in systemvm templates. This
is for some Cisco appliance not related to Debian/openssl.
