Hi,

I want apache to use 128 bit encryption.
I am using apache 2.0.35.

I went to apache website and it sais that apache_SSL
is diffrent than mod_ssl.
So does my apache 2.0.35 has ssl encryption build in or do I have to compile with an option to give me access to that
apache_SSL
If so what is the option that I have to put.
Secound is apache_ssl just as good as mod_ssl?
And once I have it compile Can I do my own certificate
and how?
Thanks

Gee... nobody looks here.

It looks the same to me, but if you drop by http://www.apache-ssl.org/ you can see that it's two different thing. ref: http://www.apache-ssl.org/#mod_ssl

I would presume that Apache-SSL is the implementation where SSL engine is build into Apache during build-time, while mod_ssl is a module loaded during runtime (using DSO).  I can comment much on which is better or more efficient.

The version that comes with Rh7.2 did have SSL built in.  But I'm not sure on the precompiled binaries.

To get you own certification ready.  You would need to grab yourself OpenSSL package: http://www.openssl.org/ However the documentation parts is not that good yet.

This link might be of some help.
http://www.openssl.org/docs/HOWTO/certificates.txt

http://slacksite.com/apache/certificate.html

If the link does not help, this is what I use to search.
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&ie=UTF8&oe=UTF8&q=openssl+generating+certificates

I hope the info would be of some help.
