Subject June 1998 Netcraft Web Server Survey (fwd)
Date Tue, 02 Jun 1998 17:52:47 GMT
Well, Apache use is still increasing by nearly twice the raw numbers that
IIS is.

For now.

And poor Netscape.  They give away their client in favor of server
development and still can't even hold their own in web servers.

Yea, the numbers don't mean much in terms of $$$ and they have a heck of
a lot of stuff other than web servers, but...

   Verisign to issue certificates for Apache-SSL
      
   Verisign are now [1]issuing certificates to people using Apache-SSL,
   ending a longstanding standoff between Verisign and Ben Laurie.
   Previsouly, Verisign would not issue certificates for the freely
   available Apache-SSL server, because commercial server vendors paid
   Verisign to inspect their products, and Verisign considered that
   issuing server certificates in respect of Apache-SSL would be
   inconsistent with this. However, Apache-SSL has become widely used,
   and certificates for Apache-SSL have been readily available from
   [2]Thawte, and so Verisign's change of view is quite pragmatic.
   
   RedHat to sell SSL Server
      
   Redhat [3]announced that they are now selling an SSL server. This
   [4]appears to be Apache-SSL with an RSA licence. This will likely
   increase the representation of Apache-SSL in the US, where use of the
   server without a licence would likely infringe RSA's patents.
   
   Both of these moves are likely to increase the use of Apache in
   internet electronic commerce and other applications requiring 
   encrypted transactions.
