SHA-2 support for Domino 9.x is planned to be delivered over the next several weeks via an Interim Fix.
- With this Interim Fix, Domino administrators will be able to configure Domino 9.x to use a SHA-2 certificate over HTTP, SMTP, LDAP, POP, and IMAP. With a SHA-2 certificate in place, users will be able to use a browser to connect to iNotes, XPages, traditional Domino Web apps, and Sametime (based on Domino HTTP).
- Once the Interim Fix is applied, browser users will not receive a security alert since Domino will be configured with SHA-2. Domino administrators will be able to import a 3rd-party SHA-2 cert or generate SHA-2 certs with the Domino Administrator client with Domino 9.x running the Interim Fix on all supported platforms.
- As mentioned in the above section, the cryptographic infrastructure needed to provide these features was new to Domino 9.x. For this reason, we will not be able to support SHA-2 on Domino 8.5.x.

Finally – IBM SmartCloud audio-video enabled:
Over the week-end, we enhanced IBM SmartCloud for Social Business with a brand new capability: audio-video calling. With this latest update, we are now adding one-to-one audio-video calling to instant messaging. How this works is very simple. Let’s imagine that you and I are starting a chat (of course, with a very polite “hi…”). You will now see two new buttons in your chat window: one to start an audio-video call, and one to start an audio-only call. After you click on the video button, I can accept the request, and both of us can see each other in a quality video call.
