Update your SSL on servers to support TLS 1.2 BEFORE iOS 9 and OS X 10.11
Tue, Jul 14th 2015 1:00p   Rene Winkelmeyer
I recently learned that there are still people around there who haven’t their servers (Apache, Domino, whatever) updated to support TLS 1.2. If you belong to this group and you’ve iOS devices (or Macs) accessing that server: read and act! Apple is introducing App Transport Security (ATS) with iOS 9 and OS X 10.11. The purpose of ATS is to leverage best practice security data connections. Here is an excerpt for the current pre-release documentation: In addition, your communication t

Today I received two packets with gifts… First I received a present from the nice guys (thanks Mark, Matt, Julian and Ben) at LDC Via. An external battery with 25,600 mAh. So enough power to survive a full conference. The second packet came via FedEx and contained my IBM Champion swag. Besides the usual lanyard and pin I’ve ordered a messenger bag and a small luggage trolley. And I really like the quality. Thanks Amanda and Oli! All that arrived just in time. I’ll str

Hiding Domino HTTP authentication in Vaadin applications
Thu, Jun 18th 2015 1:45a   Rene Winkelmeyer
All web based applications that I’m building nowadays are based on Vaadin. If you haven’t heard of this framework I highly recommend to check it out. One of the benefits of Vaadin is that you can run the same application on multiple server platforms. Those platforms are in our case IBM Domino and IBM WebSphere Liberty. Serving different platforms also means to work with different authentication mechanisms. You can use either the “application authentication” or the “

Using the Websphere Liberty Profile Maven repo with Gradle
Tue, Jun 16th 2015 4:34a   Rene Winkelmeyer
This is obviously not a biggy, so mainly a short reminder for myself. For the current development we’re using the Websphere Liberty Profile (WLP) a lot. Based on our latest efforts of moving everything to Gradle I ran into the situation to setup the WLP repos for that. IBM has described here how to add the WLP libraries to a local repo. As described hereWhen using Maven repositories you may refer to the most current version (if supported) with the LATEST tag. That may not always work well

Using remote TLS/SSL systems with untrusted Certification Authorities in IBM Domino 9+
Tue, Jun 2nd 2015 2:09a   Rene Winkelmeyer
One of the best kept secrets starting with Domino 9 is how to handle TLS/SSL connections to untrusted 3rd party Certification Authorities. I’m not going into detail what TLS/SSL means. There are thousands of websites explaining it already. The important point for this blog post is that the requesting system needs to trust the Certification Authority (CA) which issued the SSL certificate of the target system. If it doesn’t trust (aka “knows”) the CA it normally will thro

Self-signed SSL host certificates are for beginners
Mon, May 4th 2015 11:52a   Rene Winkelmeyer
I normally don’t rant. But in the last days I’ve seen in various occasions comments about stuff that’s not working with a self-signed SSL host certificate. I’m seeing this especially in the Domino area where it was (is) easy to create a simple self-signed SSL host certificate for server xyz.company.com. In my opinion too easy. Even if it’s only for a very specific purpose (like giving a few users access to a web/mobile service) the good – and only – prac

IBM Verse for iOS (iPhone to be specific) is now available
Thu, Apr 30th 2015 1:10a   Rene Winkelmeyer
Yesterday IBM has published the new iOS (iPhone) app “IBM Verse”. You can get it here in the Apple App Store. You can use the app if you’re an IBM Connections Cloud customer (S1 offering). Or – if you’re running your mail on -premises you’ll have to run IBM Traveler 9.0.1.3 (minimum, better the also yesterday released 9.0.1.4). So what can you expect from the app? Mainly two things: Containerized PIM (mail, calendar, contacts) access Access to the IBM Verse

WWDC 2015 – I’m going
Sat, Apr 18th 2015 6:22a   Rene Winkelmeyer
I’ve been selected to buy a ticket for WWDC 2015. After being fast enough in 2013 and having some luck in 2014 I’m now again lucky as being selected by the Apple lottery to go to WWDC. What can I expect? Nearly 12h in a plane – twice 9h time-difference (hello jet-lag) 100 sessions by Apple engineers Large labs with 1,000 Apple engineers at your fingertips Long queuing times for the sessions and the lab appointments 10 exhausting conference hours each day and much more!

Traveler 9.0.1.3 is available – Verse, Trash support, Freetime search
Wed, Apr 1st 2015 4:50a   Rene Winkelmeyer
IBM has released IBM Notes Traveler version 9.0.1.3 with some really nice changes. Read the official documentation here. The main changes are: Support for the upcoming iOS app “IBM Verse”. Now the gap is closed and you can run your own “PIM container” delivered by IBM. The app isn’t available yet but will be soon. Support for the synching the Trash folder on iOS. Finally. Using GCM (Google Cloud Messaging) for notifying Android devices about new mails. That’

I’ll be speaking at engage.ug – the conference formerly known as BLUG – in Ghent. The lineup of content and speakers is awesome, so make sure you’ll be on March 30-31 there! IBM Notes Traveler Daily Business – Administration, Monitoring and Troubleshooting IBM Notes Traveler is increasingly becoming an important component in business since working with mobile devices is the rule rather than the exception. Even solutions such as BlackBerry 10 or (in the future
