False Start: Brocade broken again (03 Oct 2011)

I wrote previously that Brocade had released a firmware update for their ServerIron SSL terminators which fixed an incompatibility with False Start. However, it now appears that they didn't fix the underlying issue, rather they special cased Chrome's current behaviour.

Sadly, due to Chrome implementing a workaround for the BEAST attack, their special casing doesn't work anymore and breaks Chrome 15.

So, if you run a Brocade ServerIron you should contact me ASAP. I'll be adding sites running this hardware to the False Start blacklist for Chrome 15 to allow Brocade to release another firmware update.
