AWS SHA-2 compatibility is dependent on the base server platform. Other AWS applications (such as Elastic Load Balancing (ELB)) do support SHA-2 Certificates.

IBM Domino Server by itself does not currently support SHA-2 secured connections; however, you can use an HTTP proxy server that is set up to handle incoming HTTPS requests. Domino 9.0 includes HTTP proxy server support and is configured so that you can use it with IBM HTTP Server.
