Stronghold: Apache-SSL-US is a high-performance encrypting webserver. Based on Apache, the most popular HTTP server in the world, this webserver provides commercial strength encryption which is fully compatible with Netscape Navigator's Secure Socket Layer - the software encryption protocol behind the Netscape Commerce Server and the Netscape Browser.
Stronghold Apache-SSL-US provides increased functionality to servers of similar capabilities from Netscape Communications Corp. Stronghold Apache-SSL-US supports virtual hosts (the server supports multiple certificates per server), API Extensibility, tools for building private Certificate Authorities for installations which need to maintain high security and confidentiality with support for SSL-X.509 Client Authentication. Source code and libraries are included with the product, allowing you to building customized versions of the server with an easy to use modular extension API.
Apache-SSL-US provides you with the ability to create your own Certificate Authority for use with enterprise-wide applications ("Intranet"). This allows your organization to certify webservers used internally within your organization, and provides your organization's internal clients with a mechanism of trust for those servers without an external third party.
For commercial applications, VeriSign issues Digital Ids for the Apache-SSL-US web server, certifying your Certificate of Authority. This increases customer trust in electronic commerce.
