Subject [users@httpd] DH Parameters
Date Tue, 08 Sep 2015 20:41:37 GMT
Apache 2.4.16 built against LibreSSL 2.2.3 on x86_64 Linux

There is an old patch to Apache :

It provided a new directive

SSLDHParametersFile /path/to/dh2048.pem

The patch no longer applies and even if I could make it apply and build 
I'm not confident I could do it safely.

The current method with apache is to apply the DH parameters to the 
certificate, which I find distasteful - or to use the


directive, but that requires OpenSSL 1.0.2 and appears to be a new API 
feature not in LibreSSL, which is only API compatible with OpenSSL 1.0.1.

What I would like to do is throw a script in /etc/cron.weekly/ that once 
a week does a regeneration of the DH parameters and reloads apache.

I can do that with Postfix etc. easy enough, but not with Apache, not 
unless the script manipulates the TLS certificate file which I really 
don't see as wise or the way things should be done.

Is anyone aware of a current patch to Apache that does something similar 
to that old patch?
