Planned Domino 9 SLES 12 Support
Thu, Jan 29th 2015 6:25p   Daniel Nashed
The question for SLES 12 has been raised during IIBM ConnectED. There is an issue with Domino on SLES 12 and SLES 12 is not currently supported (in contrast with RHEL 7). There is a SPR # YXYX9RA56Z "Error - Unable to Bind port 443 or 80" on SUSE12. I have checked in the Lab and got a similar info than what has been posted before on the web: "There is a known issue with SLES 12 where bindsock has issues. Before we can support SLES 12 and any other newer kernel with this issue, we will

Today I had the pleasure to present with Dave Kern about Domino internet security. Now that the presentation is public, I can speak about all the details that we presented. See the slides for all details. We covered what is already available in 9.0.1 FP3 and what is coming after FP3 quite soon. In the session demo we had a the SSL Test website showing a A- up to A+ rating depending on the configuration. There is a lot good stuff coming up in a scheduled interims fix. This includes TLS

Notes/Domino 9.0.1 FP3 has shipped
Wed, Jan 21st 2015 11:09a   Daniel Nashed
Today Notes/Domino 9.0.1 FP3 has been shipped. Already installed it on my production server. There are new new "SSL/TLS" releated fixes in FP3. But there are updates planned after FP3. So updating to FP3 is the base and you should consider an update soon. It's always better to install a FP than a IF which is technically a combo hotfix. There are also a couple of other important fixes in FP3. When you look into the Fixlist you see a couple of database/DAOS releated fixes. The FP al

Domino TLS POODLE Fix released
Sun, Dec 21st 2014 5:12a   Daniel Nashed
As reported before the IF that introduced TLS 1.0 is vulnerable to the new PODDLE issue. IBM released a new IF for all supported versions that fixes this issue. After installing the IF you can re-enable the CBC ciphers which are now reported as not vulnerable by the SSL Labs Test site. In addition to this fix IBM officially introduces a new notes.ini variable to disable SSL V3. DISABLE_SSLV3=1 will disable SSL V3 completely. But as mentioned before you should be completely sure if you wa

New-Domino-POOLE-Iussue-now-with-TLS
Tue, Dec 9th 2014 11:16p   Daniel Nashed
There is a new exploit that affects TLS! Not all implementations of TLS are affected. But Domino and also some other solutions like the F5 load-balancer are on the list. For more details read --> https://community.qualys.com/blogs/securitylabs/2014/12/08/poodle-bites-tls The problem effects all CBC ciphers. IBM is working on a solution. Meanwhile you can disable the CBC ciphers. Currently there are only two ciphers left. Not really completely what we want but it sounds like IBM

iNotes Redirect without Anonymous Access
Fri, Dec 5th 2014 9:15a   Daniel Nashed
When running iNotes you might only want to allow authenticated connections to your Domino Server over HTTP. But on the other side you want to use the iNotes Redirect database which contains some images and other design that should load even the user is not yet authenticated. There is a Wiki article that describes in detail what to do. Thanks to IBM pointing out that parameter! http://www.lotus.com/ldd/dominowiki.nsf/dx/Allowing_Anonymous_Access_to_iNotes_Redirect_images__while_preventing_An

Short Description Creating a Domino Keyring File with the new Keyring Tool and a Windows CA using Binary Formats
Tue, Dec 2nd 2014 5:11a   Daniel Nashed
Now that more and more customers are using the new keyring tool we run into interesting constellations. Microsoft uses binary formats instead of the ascii based PEM format that the keyring tool requires. Openssl does not only help you to create the key and the certficates. You can also use it to convert the certificate formats. I have written a short step by step short documentation for my customer including some troubleshooting steps and tricks. To keep it short I have left out the re

Traveler 9.0.1 IF7
Fri, Nov 7th 2014 5:15a   Daniel Nashed
Finally Traveler 9.0.1 IF7 is available. I don't see a fixlist yet but I got a fixlist from a customer from the latest hotfix he got. The IF should fix all attachment issues which came up with IF6, includes the latest Android client and should also have an updated certificate for APNS. So now you can install 9.0.1 IF7 in combination with Domino 9.0.1 FP2 IF1 which introduces TLS 1.0 in one go with just one downtime. FixCentral Download Link: http://www.ibm.com/support/fixcentr

Some Additonal TLS 1.0 Information
Thu, Nov 6th 2014 11:12a   Daniel Nashed
TLS 1.0 and the removal of SSL 3.0 from browsers that triggered the whole discussion is not just something that needs to be addresses on a Domino server. IBM has done a lot of work in quite a short time and now that customers are implementing the fix it shows that also other software is effected. Introducing TLS 1.0 for Domino was the first step from IBM to ensure that clients that only support TLS 1.0 and higher can still connect to the Domino server. For now IBM still has SSL 3.0 enabled

Domino TLS 1.0 SHA-2 Support to prevent POODLE has been shipped today
Mon, Nov 3rd 2014 6:16p   Daniel Nashed
As blogged before IBM was already working on addressing the POODLE attack by finally implementing TLS 1.0 for all internet protocols. Today IBM shipped an Interims Fix to introduce TLS 1.0 which is very important because many browsers and other software vendors are about to drop SSL 3.0 support. So you need those fixes to continue to use secure protocols like HTTS, secure SMTP, LDAP, IMAP, POP3, DIIOP.. There are a couple of changes which are described in the following Wiki documents.
