IBM Client Application Access (ICAA)

IBM® Client Application Access ermöglicht Benutzern den Zugriff auf ihre herkömmlichen Notes-Anwendungen in einem Browser (auf Systemen mit Microsoft Windows) oder über eine kleine eigenständige Anwendung (auf Systemen mit Mac OS).
IBM Client Application Access ist in IBM Notes Web und IBM Verse integriert und umgekehrt. Wenn beispielsweise ein IBM Notes-Web oder IBM Verse-Benutzer eine E-Mail mit einem Link zu einem Notes-Dokument erhält, wird das Dokument durch Klicken auf den Link in IBM Client Application Access geöffnet. Dieses Hilfedokument enthält Informationen zur Installation, Konfiguration und Nutzung von IBM Client Application Access.

IBM Traveler – Action Required by January 1, 2017


It is important to note that failure to meet all of the requirements listed below may result in your Verse for iOS, Verse for Android, IBM Notes Traveler Companion and IBM Notes Traveler To Do apps being unable to connect to your Traveler servers.

  • Mobile apps must connect only using HTTPS and not the unsecured HTTP protocol.
  • The server certificate must not be expired or invalid.
  • The server certificate common name (CN )or a name from the server certificate’s Subject Alternate Name (SAN) list must match the host name of the server with which the client is connecting. For example, if the mobile app is connecting, then the certificate must list in the CN or SAN fields. A wild card certificate is allowed but the domain from the wild card must match the server’s domain.
  • The negotiated Transport Layer Security version must be TLS 1.2. Since devices running Android prior to version 4.1 do not support TLS 1.2, they can no longer be supported.
  • The server certificate must be trusted and either issued by a certificate authority (CA) whose root certificate is incorporated into the device operating system or is a trusted root CA that has been installed by the user or a system administrator on the device.
  • The negotiated TLS connections cipher suite must support forward secrecy and be one of the following:
  • The leaf server certificate must be signed with one of the following types of keys:
    Rivest-Shamir-Adleman (RSA) key with a length of at least 2048 bits
    Elliptic-Curve Cryptography (ECC/ECDSA) key with a size of at least 256 bits
  • The leaf certificate hashing algorithm must be Secure Hash Algorithm 2 (SHA-2) with a digest length of at least 256 (SHA-256 or greater).

Universal Intranet

“We keep pushing XCC further and further, gaining new grounds as we move forward.
In 2012 we started as the “Custom Homepage” for IBM Connections.
In 2013 we renamed the product to “XCC – Web Content Management Extension for IBM Connections”.
Early 2015 we the apps and changed the name to “XCC – Web Content & Custom Apps Extension for IBM Connections”.
With the ever growing capabilities of IBM Connections and XCC we are now using term “Universal Intranet”, because this describes best the deep and unique integration of communication, collaboration and applications.
And, the term “Universal Intranet” allows us better than ever before to go after white space customers and compete with other vendors.”

IBM Notes/Domino 9.0.1 Fix pack 6

9.0.1 Fix pack 6 is a collection of low-risk, high-impact fixes to help customers safely avoid known issues. IBM strongly recommends that customers running Notes/Domino 9.0.1x upgrade to this latest Fix Pack since it addresses a small percentage of defects that impact the broadest set of customers. Fix Packs are released periodically between Maintenance Releases to provide a greater level of stability for customer environments. They go through the same level of fix, regression and interoperability testing that occurs with Maintenance Releases. Fix Packs are always cumulative and contain all of the fixes from previous ones. All Fix Packs are language independent and may be applied on any language version of Notes/Domino 9.0.1x.
