TLS 1.1 support in Apache 2.2 or latest
Hi all,
i'm confused!
i read as part of the features list for Apache 2.2
SSL_PROTOCOL string The SSL protocol version (SSLv2, SSLv3, TLSv1, TLSv1.1, TLSv1.2)

however when i run the app using apache 2.2 i get following:
[Thu Nov 08 13:38:54 2012] [notice] Apache/2.2.10 (Unix) DAV/2 mod_ssl/2.2.10 OpenSSL/0.9.7d mod_jk/1.2.26 configured -- resuming normal operations

meaning i'm using apache 2.2 but with openssl 0.9 whcih according to what i read only supports upto TLSv1.0 and not above. to get TLS 1.1 apparently i need open ssl 1.0.1.

prooblem 1 - does apache 2.2 or 2.4 support TLS 1.1 or not? - documentation says it does via the mod ssl.

if yes then how do i get TLS1.1 working? i would appreaciate some direction, app only way is to recompile with openssl 1.0 and that 2.2 does not support TLSv1.1,

ok. clarification and update - yes to get TLS 1.1 you do need to recompile using ssl 1.0.1
standard apache version doesn't have TLS1.1 support

Generally this depends on the openssl version your distribution's apache/ was compiled with.

Never the less you could compile openssl + apache yourself from the source to benefit from tls1.1+ etc.
But then you also have to maintain this future on.
