Two new Technotes have been published
The Short version it is and IBM will provide Interim Fixes for the following Domino releases:
- 9.0.1 Fix Pack 2
- 8.5.3 Fix Pack 6
- 8.5.2 Fix Pack 4
- 8.5.1 Fix Pack 5
The Short version
SHA-2 support for Domino 9.x is planned to be delivered over the next several weeks via an Interim Fix.
- With this Interim Fix, Domino administrators will be able to configure Domino 9.x to use a SHA-2 certificate over HTTP, SMTP, LDAP, POP, and IMAP. With a SHA-2 certificate in place, users will be able to use a browser to connect to iNotes, XPages, traditional Domino Web apps, and Sametime (based on Domino HTTP).
- Once the Interim Fix is applied, browser users will not receive a security alert since Domino will be configured with SHA-2. Domino administrators will be able to import a 3rd-party SHA-2 cert or generate SHA-2 certs with the Domino Administrator client with Domino 9.x running the Interim Fix on all supported platforms.
- As mentioned in the above section, the cryptographic infrastructure needed to provide these features was new to Domino 9.x. For this reason, we will not be able to support SHA-2 on Domino 8.5.x.
