Server Side TLS (for HTTP/2) and Java - Mark Thomas, Pivotal

The Apache Tomcat project is currently implementing HTTP/2. HTTP/2 places a number of requirements on the TLS implementation that can not be met by the current (Java 8) JSSE implementation. These include SNI and ALPN support. There are also some TLS features not required by HTTP/2 that would be very useful (e.g. the ability to have multiple certificates of different types for a single virtual host) that are not available with JSSE. Some, but not all of these shortfalls will be addressed in Java 9.
Each requirement that cannot be meet with JSSE as provided by Java 8 will be explained along with the approach either adopted or planned to be adopted by the Apache Tomcat project to meet these requirements. This presentation is expected to be useful for anyone implementing, working with or interested in server side TLS.
