Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Secure Server

2: Response to Secure Server (response to 1)
Posted by S. Y. on

Take a look at this thread first.

Basically, there are several ways you get HTTPS on AOLserver.

  • You can use the 40-bit "export grade" SSLv2 module available in some AOLserver binary distributions
  • You can compile your own 128-bit SSLv2 module with the expensive RSA BSAFE Crypto-C libraries; look in the nssock source directory and read the source, documentation, etc. Compiling it pretty straightforward
  • You can compile Scott Goodwin's open source SSLv2/SSLv3/TLSv1 module based on the open source SSL SDK from OpenSSL.

I don't know whether or not you can use OpenACS with two different servers (e.g., AOLserver and Apache-SSL) or whether or not you want to two different machines. Hopefully someone else will answer that.
