mod_ssl module provides strong cryptography for the Apache 1.3 webserver via the Secure Sockets Layer (SSL v2/v3) and Transport Layer Security (TLS v1) protocols by the help of the Open Source SSL/TLS toolkit OpenSSL, which is based on SSLeay from Eric A.

The mod_ssl package was created in April 1998 by Ralf S. Engelschall and was originally derived from software developed by Ben Laurie for use in the Apache-SSL HTTP server project. The mod_ssl package is licensed under a BSD-style license, which basically means that you are free to get and use it for commercial and non-commercial purposes.

Here are some key features of "mod_ssl":

· Open Source software (BSD-style license)
· Useable for both commercial and non-commercial use
· Available for both Unix and Win32 platforms
· 128-bit strong cryptography world-wide
· Support for SSLv2, SSLv3 and TLSv1 protocols
· Support for both RSA and Diffie-Hellman ciphers
· Clean reviewable ANSI C source code
· Clean Apache module architecture
· Integrates seamlessly into Apache through an Extended API (EAPI)
· Full Dynamic Shared Object (DSO) support
· Support for the OpenSSL+RSAref US-situation
· Advanced pass-phrase handling for private keys
· X.509 certificate based authentication for both client and server
· X.509 certificate revocation list (CRL) support
· Support for per-URL renegotiation of SSL handshake parameters
· Support for explicit seeding of the PRNG with external sources
· Additional boolean-expression based access control facility
· Backward compatibility to other Apache SSL solutions
· Inter-process SSL session cache (DBM or Shared Memory based)
· Powerful dedicated SSL engine logging facility
· Simple and robust application to Apache source trees
· Fully integrated into the Apache 1.3 configuration mechanism
· Additional integration into the Apache Autoconf-style Interface (APACI)
· Assistance in X.509v3 certificate generation (both RSA and DSA)
