           Summary: Please document x509 v3 subjectAltName
           Product: Apache httpd-2.0
           Version: 2.1-HEAD
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: mod_ssl
        AssignedTo: bugs@httpd.apache.org
        ReportedBy: nospam@indoktrination.at


Contrary to popular believe and contrary to the apache documentation, it is
currently possible to use name virual hosting over ssl as long as all virtual
hosts share the same ssl-setup (server-certificate, client-certificates, etc).
Using the subjectAltName extension of x509 v3 it is possible for this one
server-certificate to be valid for all ssl-virtual hosts. subjectAltName is
supported at least by current Mozilla browsers and Internet Explorer versions.
Look at http://www.es.net/pub/esnet-doc/SubjectAltName.pdf (found via Google)
for more details.

The setup works perfectly with Apache 2.0.52 (Debian Package), even though
apache complains once per virtual host about the CN of the certificate not
matching ServerName.

Please change the documentation or at least include a hint that subjectAltName
exists, it could be very usefull for small sites. It could also stimulate
browser support for subjectAltName if it became widly known.
