The State of TLS on Apache HTTP Server - William A. Rowe Jr, Pivotal
Simply 'loading' mod_ssl is not sufficient in the rapidly evolving encryption space. Smart organizations have had to adapt to changing security requirements, including accepted cipher suites, ECDHE keys and stronger RSA keys to pick up today's best practices. They have shifted from SSL session caches to session tickets to further attain perfect forward secrecy, are rolling out OCSP stapling services, have dropped SSLv3 Protocol and are adopting TLS virtual hosting to consolidate their deployments. Learn how the out-of-the-box httpd mod_ssl facilities can be hardened and enhanced for today's standards.
