Does Splunk run IIS or Apache for its web server?

I need to find out an answer for what does Splunk run for its web server? Is it Apache, IIS or some other flavor. I have Splunk running on Windows Server 2012 R2.

Thank you.

Hi molinarf,

SplunkWeb uses CherryPy, a Python-based web framework.
Find a list of software used in Splunk here http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.2.3/ReleaseNotes/Credits

Hi there. So if we want to use a certificate signed by a third party certificate authority for accessing Splunk Web, we get asked (upon certificate download) which sort of server it is going to be installed on. Apache, IIS etc. etc. but no CherryPy. There is an 'other' for x509 certificate, would that do the job?

Thanks.
