Which version of Apache and OpenSSL (mod_ssl?) is required to use a EV SAN SSL certificate?

As far as I have been able to find out Apache version 2.2.15+ should be fine, but what about OpenSSL?

Can I assume that the 0.9.8m that comes bundled with 2.2.15 will work fine?

(EV SAN SSL = Extended Validation SAN certificate)


Although I have not confirmed which minimum required version of Apache/openssl to use, I found out that the only requirement is that the server must be capable of generating a 2048 bit private key. In other words any 2.2.15+ version of Apache with openssl should work fine.

  • The server doesn't generate the 2048-bit key pair: these are the keys used to create the certificate. The tool that does this is independent of the server.

Any recent version will work since the CA actually creates the certificate. Apache doesn't care what kind of certificate it is.
