Using OpenSSL to Boost JSSE in Tomcat - Jean-Frederic Clere, Red Hat
In Tomcat-native and Tomcat9 it is now possible to use the NIO and NIO2 connectors with OpenSSL and have a a full support of HTTP/2 with TLS/SSL. JSSE is known to have poor performances compared with OpenSSL additionally ALPN required by HTTP/2 won't be in the JVM before java9. The goal of the new connector is to get ride of the old APR connector and use the NIO or NIO2 one and still have the performances of OpenSSL. Additionally the tc-native can be used in other java web server for example undertow, the presentation will explain how and demo it quickly. The presentation will explain the new code and the corresponding configuration and show the performance improvements: With the new piece of code Tomcat with the NIO or NIO2 connector gives even a better throughput than with the old APR connector!

Seamless Upgrades for Credential Security in Apache Tomcat - Christopher Schultz, Total Child Health
Clear-text credentials (user passwords) were never a good idea. Not only are both MD5 and SHA1 now dead, even more modern hashing algorithms aren't appropriate for credential storage in an era of hash-lookup sites. Some recent additions to Apache Tomcat have made it easier to use more secure credential-storage mechanisms along with container-managed security. They can even be used to seamlessly upgrade from older, less-secure algorithms to newer, more secure ones.

We'll investigate the modifications to Tomcat that allow developers and operations staff to use these features, and look at how to actually plug custom credentials-handling mechanisms into an existing Tomcat-based application.
