Enabling SSLCipherSpec via Notes.ini

The value in SSLCipherSpec is selected automatically in the Server documents or Internet Site documents of Domino 10.0.1 servers. The notes.ini setting on servers is ignored.

Request: Enable again the option to apply/modify the SSLCipherSpec via Notes.ini of the server.

This would be very helpful if you're require not to update the template prior to Domino 10.

    Thomas, are you saying that the V12 template is required to enable the notes.ini parameters ? The whole gist of this idea was to NOT require template upgrade to keep existing functionality.

    Existing values are preserved and additional / newer Ciphers are introduced in the V12 template. Considering this idea to be shipped with V12

    I do not see this as a heavy priority, as our company long ago switched to using Nginx in front of Domino to offload SSL, and add http/2 support, handle file streams. Unless they have significantly improved the Domino http stack there is no reason to use https on it.

    This is the first time in my 25 year experience with the product that a template update is required to keep existing functionality. In the past template upgrades were only required to expose  new functionality. Breaking something as critical as SSL ciphers is unacceptable. 


Option to enable SSL cipher via notes.ini

Starting v10.0.X SSL cipher should be configure from the server/internet site document. When admin does require not to update the template of the Domino server, they still want to have an option to enable the new SSL cipher via notes.ini.
