Question

What are IBM's plans surrounding support for IBM HTTP Server (IHS) bundled with Domino?

Answer

IBM plans to remove support for IBM HTTP Server bundled with Domino in a future maintenance release now that native Domino TLS functionality has been added to the product. The bundled IBM HTTP Server proved a good solution for Domino customers who needed better security functionality over the native Domino HTTP protocol on a Windows server platform. However, that solution is limited in scope since it covers only HTTPS and Windows.

With native implementation of TLS 1.0, as detailed in technote 1687167, and TLS 1.2, as detailed in technote 1697925 - TLS 1.2 deliveries for IBM Notes & Domino 9.x, the IBM HTTP Server bundled with Domino is no longer needed. The native implementation of TLS 1.2 covers all platforms and a broader set of protocols beyond HTTP, making it a full solution.
