Today I finished the migration of svn.cacert.org to a LXC container on our new infrastructure machine. The container is running on Debian Squeeze and supports some nice new features:
- client certificate authentication (on https://svn.cacert.org/ and its alias https://cert.svn.cacert.org/)
- username/password authentication (on https://nocert.svn.cacert.org/)
- SNI (name based virtual hosting for https)
Read only access is provided via http://svn.cacert.org/ as it was before.
Besides allowing client certificate authentication for our Subversion repository this is a big step forward as we now have a modern infrastructure machine with a recent operating system distribution.
If you already have a SVN account on svn.cacert.org and want to use the client certificate authentication feature please send a mail to svn-admin (at) cacert (dot) org.
