Both lighty and Apache use OpenSSL.
Good point ;-)
I'm using it and haven't seen any
battlefield casualties so far. ;-) Apache has its share of (even recent)
security issues, including some related to mod_ssl.
Honestly, I see that as a good thing! It's a bit like the old "macs
never get exploited" argument, it's not because there aren't exploits
there, it's because not enough people use them for someone to stumble
across them ;-)
Lighty seems to be
fitting well for those that need a smaller, simpler server, which is why I
mentioned it. I'll leave it as an exercise for the interested to determine
if they want to use it.
True, and simplicity does often make for more security and so, while I'd
stick with Apache for the reasons already mentioned, I retract my
comment about lighttpd...
