Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1010751
mod_nss sni incompatibility with apache24
Last modified: 2016-01-08 15:55:29 EST
Description of problem:
mod_nss appears to still lack support for SNI according to: https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=360421
However, apache 24 states: https://httpd.apache.org/docs/2.4/upgrading.html
The NameVirtualHost directive no longer has any effect, other than to emit a warning. Any address/port combination appearing in multiple virtual hosts is implicitly treated as a name-based virtual host.
This leaves mod_nss users open to issues due to the lack of SNI in nss server support.
1) Is this incorrect and mod_nss supports sni?
2) Is there a timeframe for completion if this is not the case?
3) Should this constitute a bug that mod_nss is incompatible with apache24?
Since NSS has support for SNI, this bug will be scheduled to be addressed in Fedora 21.
Has there been any progress on this?
No, we are still waiting on support in NSS. The NSS development team is aware of the need but hasn't provided a timeline for support.
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.
