Description (last modified by jweiss) (diff)

When I go to  https://athena.dialup.mit.edu/ I get a SIAB session and the world is wonderful. Unfortunately, if I go to  https://department-of-alchemy.mit.edu/, I get the same cert (which isn't signed for department-of-alchemy) and thus a cert warning. For people using screen+SIAB, each host should have a SubjectAltName of their actual hostname or do SNI.

Anybody know if SIAB supports SNI?

Replying to adehnert:

Anybody know if SIAB supports SNI?

Apparently it does --- see "-c certdir" in the manpage ( http://code.google.com/p/shellinabox/wiki/shellinaboxd_man).

RT ticket 2329061:
"""
Alex,

Sorry for the delay getting back to you. This is a known issue and
considered a low priority at this point. It may be a while before we
get this dealt with, but we are considering the issue.

Jonathon

Not fixing this will make #1293+SIAB suck, but we can cross that bridge when #1293+ssh is finished.

Actually, if #1293+SIAB is IS&T-maintained, this doesn't particularly need to be fixed so long as either username.dialup.mit.edu is used or the dialups have a *.prefered-dialup.mit.edu cert as well.

The solution I'm recommending is to use  https://dialupname.dialup.mit.edu (eg.,  https://department-of-alchemy.dialup.mit.edu (not the ".dialup")).
