openSUSE-SU-2014:0987-1: moderate: cipher upgrade and SNI support for apache2-mod_nss
openSUSE Security Update: cipher upgrade and SNI support for apache2-mod_nss

Announcement ID: openSUSE-SU-2014:0987-1
Rating: moderate
References: #859439 #863518 #878681
Affected Products:
openSUSE 11.4

An update that contains security fixes can now be installed.


This update introduces Server Name Indication support to mod_nss, which
was not available previously. In addition to SNI, GCM ciphers have been
added to the cipher list of mod_nss. A bug was corrected that prevented
the entry of the certificate store passphrase if such a passphrase was
set. Please note that the configuration presets were slightly changed so
that the new ciphers are preferred (NSSCipherSuite directive), and the
VirtualHost directive is now contained in
/etc/apache2/vhosts.d/vhost-nss.templace (not used by apache because not
named *.conf).
