The World NEXT ends 



What do you say when you have bad news or no news... when you really should be saying something?

One corporate take is to say as little as possible. (and hope the issue goes away, I guess).


I've blurred the name of the source for this comment, because I don't want her (or is it him?) blamed  for my extrapolation.






Related to this issue we have an answer from our colleagues from Level 2 that even the future version 10 does not have the support for it yet - and there is an enhancement request even for that version. The enhancement request for SHA-2 is the most needed one in Domino history. The more customers are requesting it, the more chance there is that IBM will put time and money into fixing it. We added your PMR to this very long list. The software problem report number is SPR # ABAI7SASE6 and APAR #LO46492.


If you haven't yet, please call IBM and open a PMR in support of this SPR/APAR.


C'mon, IBM I want to believe you're going to do the right thing here. and soon.
really. I do.

1) Notes 10?

Did I read that correctly? "Notes 10"

2) Re: IBM Domino and SHA-1 / SHA-2 / SHA-256 (etc) ... that doesn’t sound promising, does it?

Indeedy-de. I imanage that's the version that fully supports Windows 10 (live tiles, etc).

Yeah.

We are already using nginx to handle SHA-2 for https. IBM lack of action in this area is already having us consider removing Domino as the Web server component of the stack.

Yeah, it's sad to see a richly featured product that had potential five years ago dry up on the vine.

But that's true for a lot of IBM's product lines. They only difference here is that they can't sell it to Lenovo.

I'm pretty sure that L2 isn't well informed...

It's fair to say they are somewhat more informed that we are.

Really? Based on my support calls I'm not sure L2 know much more about the product at all.

I assume that there's someone at IBM who knows what's going on. I'm not sure he's allowed to talk to support though.

Looking at the respective SPR registration dates.. you've been waiting 4 YEARS!!! IBM haven't yet budged.. and it's not like they didn't have forewarning. wow.. apathy at it's best.

Here's a joke : What's the difference between IBM and an IT department in the public service ? A department can't list on the NASDAQ *boom-tish*
