Description Arvid Requate univentionstaff 2015-06-01 15:17:17 CEST
It would be good to backport the configurability of the SSLCipherSuite option to allow uses to mitigate the effects of the Logjam issue.

Note: The option SSLCompression is not yet available in apache 2.2.16-6+squeeze12, so no protection against the "CRIME" MITM attack without backporting the patch from 2.2.22-12. Likewise, the option SSLProtocol doesn't support TLSv1.2 yet in that version.

+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #37566 +++

It would be useful to allow more configuration options for mod_ssl (it's already a UCR template: /etc/univention/templates/files/etc/apache2/mods-available/ssl.conf)
Comment 1 Philipp Hahn univentionstaff 2015-07-07 15:13:04 CEST
FYI: Bug #36173 already added options to disable SSLv2 and SSLv3 (r54575,r54554) in UCS-3.2-3

FYI: Apache-2.2 in UCS-3.2 only supports TLSv1.0, not 1.1 or newer!

QA: See Bug #27656 for some tests - also work on UCS-3.2-6.
Comment 2 Erik Damrose univentionstaff 2015-07-13 10:00:59 CEST
OK: backport from UCS 4
OK: with default settings applied, the ssllabs check for cipher strength improves from 60/100 to 90/100
OK: yaml
Reopen: r61842 introduces a link from UCRV apache2/ssl/tlsv11 to ssl.conf - but the variable not evaluated. Probably a remnant from the backport, as apache 2.2 does not support TLS 1.1 as mentioned in comment #1. Please remove the variable from univention-apache.univention-config-registry to avoid confusion.
