Subject Re: [STATUS] mod_ssl for Apache 2.0
Date Fri, 25 May 2001 10:52:02 GMT

Hi Ralf,

I would like to help you in carving out the next generation SSL/TLS solution for
apache 2.0  out of the existing
code base as you mentioned.

Currently we are trying to consolidate the best practices which we have found
out so far after evaluating the
various browsers with apache web server. We are actually interested in figuring
out the low response secure
web browsing over high latency networks like satellite and then later promote it
to be adapted by the vaious
 browser and web server developers. We will be publishing our findings pretty
shortly and i would appreciate if you
could provide your views on that.

Subject:  [STATUS] mod_ssl for Apache 2.0

Just for your information: mod_ssl was imported to
httpd-2.0/modules/ssl/ recently. I've also started to port the code to
Apache 2.0 and half of the job is already done. Unfortunately the last
three weeks I was too busy with my regular job tasks and now I'm on
holiday in Italy for two weeks with my family. So, work on mod_ssl for
Apache 2.0 has to be delayed at least for two more weeks. Sorry for this
in case you expected the port to happen faster.

Nevertheless I expect that we have a running mod_ssl in Apache 2.0
by end of June. But this then will certainly _NOT_ the final SSL/TLS
solution for Apache 2.0. As agreed with Ben, what then happens is
that Ben and I and anyone else which has interest in SSL/TLS will use
the existing code-bases of mod_tls and mod_ssl and create the next
generation and final SSL/TLS solution for Apache 2.0 out of it. But
please be patient a little bit more.
