LEAD STORY

SUPPORT ADDED FOR TLS 1.0 FOR SMTP IN IBM NOTES AND DOMINO 9.0.1 FP3
Est. release date Q1 2015 -- Scheduled maintenance release, containing several bug fixes and some new features. SPR# YDEN8RNH22 - Support added for TLS 1.0 for SMTP. Transport Layer Security (TLS) and its predecessor, Secure Sockets Layer (SSL), are cryptographic protocols designed to provide communication security over the Internet. They use X.509 certificates and hence asymmetric cryptography to authenticate the counterparty with whom they are communicating, and to exchange a symmetric key. This session key is then used to encrypt data flowing between the parties. This allows for data/message confidentiality, and message authentication codes for message integrity and as a by-product, message authentication. Several versions of the protocols are in widespread use in applications such as web browsing, electronic mail, Internet faxing, instant messaging, and voice-over-IP (VoIP). An important property in this context is forward secrecy, so the short-term session key cannot be derived from the long-term asymmetric secret key.
