Subject [users@httpd] outdated material on apache web-site
Date Sat, 22 Dec 2007 19:27:50 GMT
Hey all,

I came across this


Apache-SSL is an encrypting web server, based on Apache and OpenSSL, which 
implements Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) functionality as a set of patches to 
existing Apache source code.

The webserver is distributed with the full source code. Inside the United 
States you may use it for non-commercial purposes for free if you use 
RSAREF (due to various patents). Outside the United States you may use it 
for both commercial and non-commercial purposes for free.

If you wish to use Apache with SSL commercially, inside the United States, 
you may want to look at Stronghold or Raven. Apache-SSL is available here.


This info is seriously outdated, as neither stronghold nor raven are 
available anymore, and the RSA patent is at this point long expired. 
(This page also makes no mention of mod_ssl).
