You asked. IBM responds: Interim Fix for Domino to support SHA-2 and TLS fix for POODLE attack.


All the information you need is in these two technotes:
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21418982
http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21687167
Watch for the fix to be posted on Fix Central soon.  Then this can be marked Completed in Greenhouse and IdeaJam.net
Note that one of these will only be supported on Domino 9.0.1.  The 8.5 code can’t support SHA-2 encryption.

What does this mean? This addresses the issue that web browsers will soon no longer support connecting to websites that use the older encryption due to its weaker algorithms that can be broken with today’s faster computers.  So Domino servers using https will need this update to allow web browsers to be able to connect after they drop support for the old security.

iSecurity hole is not so good. This wouldn’t happen with a BlackBerry.


Be wary of using your iWhatever on public networks until the patches are made.  The scary part is not knowing how long the “bad guys” have been exploiting this.

For all the bad rap BlackBerry got for their product, one thing that they never compromised on was security.  From device, through the phone carrier, through the BB data center, over the Internet, and to your company’s mail server.
