SNI Files generated
The directory ${DIR}/sni has been populated with the following
- root.key|pem Certificate authority root and key. (You could
import the root.pem key into your browser to
quell warnings about an unknown authority).
- hosts /etc/hosts file with fake entries for the hosts
- htdocs directory with one docroot for each domain,
each with a small sample file.
- ssl directory with an ssl cert (signed by root)
for each of the domains).
- logs logfiles, one for each domain and an
access_log for any misses.
The directory ${CDIR} contains optional test files to allow client
authentication testing:
- client*pem/p12 Files for client authentication testing. These
need to be imported into the browser.
- xs-root-1/2 Certificate authority which has issued above
client authentication certificates.
- xs-root-dir A directory specific for the SSLCACertificateDir
- xs-root-chain A chain of the two client xs authorities for the
SSLCACertificate directive.
SNI Test
A directory ${DIR}/sni has been created. Run an apache
server against it with
.../httpd -f ${DIR}/httpd-sni.conf
and keep an eye on ${DIR}/logs/error_log. When everything
is fine you will see entries like:
Feb 11 16:12:26 2008] [debug] Init:
SSL server IP/port overlap: ape.*:443 (httpd-sni.conf:24) vs. jane.*:443 (httpd-sni.conf:42)
for each vhost configured and a concluding warning:
[Mon Feb 11 16:12:26 2008] [warn] Init:
Name-based SSL virtual hosts only work for clients with TLS server name indication support (RFC 4366)
HOWEVER - If you see an entry like:
[Mon Feb 11 15:41:41 2008] [warn] Init:
You should not use name-based virtual hosts in conjunction with SSL!!
then you are either using an OpenSSL which is too old and/or you need to ensure that the
TLS Extensions are compiled into openssl with the 'enable-tlsext' flag. Once you have
recompiled or reinstalled OpenSSL with TLS Extensions you will have to recompile mod_ssl
to allow it to recognize SNI support.
Meanwhile add 'hosts' to your c:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts
or /etc/hosts file as to point the various URL's to your server:
and verify that each returns its own name (and an entry in its
own ${DIR}/logs) file).
Note that in the generated example the 'first' domain is special - and is the
catch all for non-SNI browsers. Depending on your circumstances it may make
sense to use a generic name - and have each of the SNI domains as subdirectories
(and hence URI's under this generic name). Thus allowing non SNI browsers also
access to those sites.
