Domino server rating from F to A+ in seconds

Posted by:

Requirements:
Server running 9.0.1 FP4 and up

Background:
Running SSL Labs test on https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/index.html
Gives You low rating

Mission:
Increase rating

Step1:
Gather OCSP information
Goto Site and View certificate

Go to Intermediate certificate next to Your own and View Certificate

Go to Details and Authority Information and under Alternative name write down the URL.
In our case it is https://ocsp.starfield.com/

Step2:
Update notes.ini from console with the following, remember to replace the value of OCSP_RESPONDER with Your value from Step1.!!

set config DISABLE_SSLV3=1
set config HTTP_HSTS_MAX_AGE=17280000
set config HTTP_HSTS_INCLUDE_SUBDOMAINS=1
set config SSL_ENABLE_OCSP_STAPLING=1
set config OCSP_RESPONDER=https://ocsp.starfield.com/
set config OCSP_CLOCKSKEW=10
set config OCSP_LOGLEVEL=31
set config SSLCipherSpec=C030009FC02F009EC028006BC0140039C0270067C013

In Release 10 the last notes.ini SSLCipherSpec is not respected it must be set in Internet Sites\Security

a. Is most secure

b. If You have with a. You can use this and get a good rating anyway

Step3:
Restart HTTP task with following command:
restart task http

Now You can test Your server again and everything should be running fine

Nyheter i Domino 10, Domino 11 och lite om Connections

Posted by:

Sista veckan i februari höll HCL öppet hus i Milano och pratade om vad de planerar att göra med IBM Collaboration produkterna, som de håller på att köpa från IBM. Precis innan det var det IBM Think 2019 i San Francisco, där också en hel del nytt presenterades för framförallt Domino. Beträffande själva köpet så vet vi inte så mycket mer än att allt tyder på att det verkar bli av och att HCL tänker ge Domino en nystart.

 

Några spännande grejor som ser ut att komma med Domino 11 under Q4 2019.

 

  1. Domino som Elastic Search provider. Elastic Search kommer äntligen att kunna ersätta Dominos fulltextindex, som i mina ögon överlevt sig själv med många år. För att inte störa bakåtkompabiliteten kan Elastic aktiveras applikation för applikation.

 

  1. HTTP-autentisering mot ID Vault vilket bl.a. förenklar lösenordshantering. ID Vault blir i allt bättre med APIer etc., vilket i sig fått Dominos katalog att fungera lite mer som t.ex. Active Directory. som t.ex. inte haft Dominos problem med t.ex dubbla lösenord och klientberoenden.

 

  1. Apropå Active Directory så kommer också en helt ny AD synk.

 

  1. Ny installerare – InstallAnywhere 2018 ersätter InstallShield som gick ur tiden för länge sedan

 

  1. Domino Publisher – Snärtigare eventhanterare för både publicering- och prenumerationer knutna till databasevents och document events.

 

To be continued…. Jag skall försöka uppdatera den här posten efterhand som mer information släpps från HCL och IBM

 

Nya Domino 10 funktioner som redan släppts eller släpps efterhand

 

  1. En app (Domino Mobile Apps, kodnamn Nomad) som kör traditionella Notes-applikationer direkt från Ipads sluttestas just nu och efter den kommer även Nomad för iPhone, Android och ChromeOS. Apple versionerna av Nomad verkar distribueras via Apples B2B app store. Infoware har testat Nomad med gott resultat och vi följer utvecklingen.

 

  1. Notes-applikationsstöd som WebAssembly komponent. Nomad är också byggd för att kunna kompileras enligt WebAssembly-standarden. WebAssembly är en ny standard för att köra binärer på webb oavsett webbläsare. Web browser pluginen verkar alltså komma tillbaka, men betydligt tunnare och mer standardbaserad än tidigare. Tillsammans med ID-Vault för både Notes och http så kan det nog bli riktigt smidigt att köra både webb- och traditionella Notes applikationer från både webbläsare och mobiler https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WebAssembly

 

  1. Domino Query Language

 

DQL – Domino Query Language släpptes i december 2018 med Domino 10.0.1. DQL är ett nytt blixtsnabbt sätt/API/Språk för att hämta data från Domino. Om jag förstått det rätt så kommer DQL t.ex. att kunna ersätta t.ex. sök och NoteCollections i Domino applikationer.

 

  1. Domino Query Language Explorer är en Notes databas byggd för att testa DQL och få frågorna översatta till java, lotusscript eller javascript.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJNqjfML9-I

Presentationen är 11 minuter. Riktigt snyggt.

 

  1. Domino AppDev Pack 1.0 har släpptes tillsammans med Domino 10.0.1 och nu siktar HCL på att följa upp det med en ny release varje kvartal. Målet med Domino AppDev pack är att möjliggöra modernare Domino utveckling baserat på Node.js, javascript tillsammans med Domino Query Language.

 

Connections framtid, vad händer där?

HCL verkar satsa lika hårt här, även om planerna inte verkar lika klara som för Domino. Några saker har dock sipprat ut

  1. Release-tempot ökas upp till ett nytt Feature pack per kvartal och paketen utlovas att innehålla mer nytt. Senast nu under Q1 släpptes IC6 CR4 med bland annat en funktion för att dela enskilda filer externt m.h.a. direktlänkar som sedan inte kräver inloggning. Den funktionen har iallafall jag längtat efter. Infoware släpper förresten DomainPatrol Social support för IC6 CR4 nu i dagarna.
  2. IBM Connections kund-Jams för att samla input framåt är igång nu i stil med HCLs Jams inför Domino 10 och senast Domino 11

Infoware, Enterprise Collaboration and Identity

Posted by:

Infowares history and role from 1995 onward has been the pro-active, technical, business-oriented drivers. Our focus in the “digital transformation” is to help large organizations getting their collaboration platforms smart, efficient and secure. Our purpose with this, is a conviction that smarter collaboration and technology can make the planet a better place to live.

We work with organizations from 30 to 120 000 users with 50% of our billing on each side of the 10 000-user mark. Infowares technical place is primarily the central IT highways and/or Group Communication. Typically, we work with core catalogs, intranets, migrations, email optimization, federation services and application infrastructure etc. Until 10 years ago many Swedish organizations used IBM Domino for a large portion of their collaboration solutions. Since then +90% has changed to use Microsoft technologies for their base services, but many continue with IBM Domino for agile collaborative business applications.

An Enterprise Collaboration project, from the technical side, is seldom about developing beautiful front ends or implementing cool tools to the end user. Instead our role is more often to automate processes for how users (Identity Management) in separate catalogs and data in different applications can work together or be moved without disturbances. Such work often gets down to a mix of experience, respect for size, technical skills, patience, tests, tests and in the end politics. I think our most important success factor has been a culture to do the extra miles and never ever give up.

Of course, we have also developed many solutions (and skills) to automate the large amounts of changes in identities, collaboration applications and even the tools used. Sometimes we have been used as architects or developers, but of course we have also been the fire department when central systems got issues. We are now a highly experienced team of experts, with a good understanding on Enterprise Collaboration from both the technical and business logic sides.

Some of our solutions got repeatable and even to the next levels products and services. We think our customers like our innovation process; (a.) real world Enterprise Collaboration problem, (b.) Enterprise Solution, (c.) repeatable solution, (d.) Standard Product and eventually (e.) a service.

Another side of working with Enterprise Collaboration and Identity are migrations driven by digital transformation and organisational mergers. We, the movers, have helped our customer with complex splits, merges, system changes or why not to move part of their on-premise collaboration platforms to Office 365 and implement MS Teams at the same time. From our experience the IBM Domino customers are collaborating more (in Office 365) compared to the many on-premise Microsoft customers. We are sure the on-premise Microsoft customers will take the jump too, and to do this they will need experienced movers like us.

Another trend is contract services and outsourcing. Infoware is a relevant contract service provider for solutions that we have built and for IBM Domino environments, where we have super human capabilities and economy of scale.

Välkommen till GDPR Meetup – vad hinner du egentligen med på 72 timmar?

Posted by:

Välkommen på GDPR-frukost Meetup!

Den nya Data Protection Regulation från EU säger att ett dataintrång måste rapporteras inom 72 timmar. Så långt är allt klart. Utmaningen vi nu står inför är att vara redo med rutiner på vad som ska hinnas med på de 72 timmarna.

– Var upptäcktes intrånget?
– Vilka delar av verksamheten drabbas och kan skadas?
– Kan intrånget spridas till andra delar?
– Har vi någon action plan för att täppa till säkerhetshålet?

Utan ett loggverktyg eller en SIEM-lösning som samlar in information om säkerhetshändelser i din miljö data är det i princip omöjligt att formulera en överblick över intrånget och rapportera det. Än mindre sätta in åtgärder för att lösa problemet.

Under mötet berättar och diskuterar vi om hur du kan upptäcka händelser i realtid och förbereda dig för ett eventuellt intrång.

Spendera dina 72 timmar på omedelbar avhjälpning och snabb rapportering till de drabbade.

Michael Albek har arbetat inom SIEM området i mer än tio år och han kommer att krydda presentationsdelen med flera verkliga intrång som han arbetat med.

Infoware bjuder på frukost!

Talare: Ulf Stider, Infoware och Michael Albek, SecureDevice

IBM Champion: Maria Nordin

Posted by:

I am very happy and excited to announce that I am once again selected to be an IBM Champion. For the third consecutive year. For me this is a recognition of that I am doing something right, which is fantastic!

One of my greatest passions is collaboration and bringing people together in various situations. I truly believe that we are stronger together and can achieve higher goals and better results if we work more out loud and closer to one another. Closer doesn’t necessarily mean geographically. That’s where the extra sweet sprinkle is added. By using various collaboration tools teams, colleagues and companies can overcome distances both in distance and culture.

To work out load is to learn about your co workers. About their skills, experiences and strengths. In the same way they learn about you. And to use tools that are intelligent and helps you make the most of all your assets. Like for example Watson who (is she a person? 😉 ) can summarise a long chat discussion to short overview moments, suggest where you should store files and what to answer (and who) on emails. Just to mention a few.

I am truly happy I get to be in this collaborative community and to be part of this journey to a more digitalised and open work space.

Thank you IBM for letting me go on the carousel this year too!

/Maria Nordin

Did you know that we are experts in Security Solutions

Posted by:

Together with our partner SecureDevice, who is leading in IT security in the Nordic region, we offer services and tools to help you protect your business.

Today, it is unavoidable that business critical infrastructure is exposed to attacks. You are most certainly attacked daily and probably without knowing it. The solution is to make the attacks visible to have a chance to protect yourself from intrusion and theft of business-critical business information.

What does the new data protection regulation (GDPR) entail in May 2018?

GDPR will affect all industries, companies and organizations which handle personal data. In addition to a more stringent security responsibility in your daily work, GDPR entails that detailed data on all detected data violations should be reported within 72 hours. This means that your IT department needs to establish security solutions to prevent, monitor and handle potential data violations.

Contact us to find out more about how our solutions in Identity & Access Management and Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) can help you meet the new requirements.
