Subject RE: mod_ssl, SNI and dynamic virtual hosts
Date Tue, 25 May 2010 17:42:59 GMT
Loading & processing server certificates, keys, trust chains, and CRLs
Request time doesn't make sense to me, unless it's implemented as a
"one-time cost" for the first use of a dynamic virtual host.  Are these
virtual hosts truly dynamic?  It seems that there would have to be some
a priori knowledge of the possible servers you might be hosting. Are you
in fact proposing some mechanism whereby you provide a path generator as
in "certs/%s/server.crt" where Apache will look for the certificates
[and other files] defining the PKI environment for each dynamic virtual
host, and that further these files might not have been present on the
system at httpd's startup?
