Description William Brown 2013-09-22 21:23:22 EDT
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?
Comment 1 Matthew Harmsen 2013-09-24 12:36:39 EDT
Since NSS has support for SNI, this bug will be scheduled to be addressed in Fedora 21.
Comment 2 William Brown 2014-04-09 21:40:01 EDT
Has there been any progress on this?
Comment 3 Rob Crittenden 2014-04-09 22:39:31 EDT
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.
Comment 4 Jaroslav Reznik 2015-03-03 10:05:49 EST
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 22 development cycle.
Changing version to '22'.
