    SSL on apache

    What is it that you want to know Lord Xavier? Are you looking for general/specific information on SSL or do you want to know how to implement it on Apache? If you would like to know how to implement it on Apache, I would suggest checking out the Apache Site. Let us know more detail and we will try and help. Also, remember that you can do a search here on AO on the homepage, or there's always the great Google .

    Edit: Remember that SSL is not a replacement for keeping servers patched against vulnerabilities. It only secures information in transit across the net, but not on the servers themselves.

    Not really sure what the 'Abria lancelot apache' is, but you have to make sure that the version of apache you are running supports SSL. As far as I know, there are two different code branches for this, modssl and ApacheSSL. It has been my experience in the past that it was easier/faster to get modssl up and running and I usually stick to it. You can get/will need the following:

    Apache: www.apache.org
    ModSSL: www.modssl.org
    OpenSSL: www.openssl.org

    You need to pay particular attention to the version numbers on the apache site and make sure that it is supported by the modssl site (they almost always are, but still need to watch).

    To get started, unzip and untar those groups of source code from the same dir (this will leave you with three directories apache-x-xxx, modssl-x-x-x-x, and openssl-0.9xx).

    configure and install openssl first
    go to the mod_ssl source tree, pass the directory where apache source tree is (../apache-xxx), openssl source tree (../openssl-0.9xxx), and any configuration options that you want to pass to apache (such as prefix for installation directory, or any mods you want to install). Type './configure --help' and cat INSTALL from the modssl directory and it will give you this information and more options.

    After you do the configure, just follow the instructions it gives you and you will soon be mostly done. Then to require SSL for a page/directory, in the <Directory> or virtual host definition, you would just need to put a 'SSLRequiresSSL' directive there to require the SSL connection.

    Hope this at least gets you started.
