Let's get an SSL cert

Postby Ishpeck » Thu Oct 29, 2015 11:35 am

I'll pitch in for an SSL certificate so we can make our authentication creds a little less naked. https://www.namecheap.com/security/ssl- ... oClZrw_wcB

I'll consider it, need to see about rebasing the dns server away from Rask's ISP anyway as I'd like to shut Rask down by the end of the year.

Can't do it in the immediate future though. Might start some of the process tonight, probably need a walk through on some of it.

Ishy,

What do you think of letsencrypt.com?

Just wondering because I came across some people talking about it on a chatroom for sysadmins.

Our go-to company was RapidSSL, here at work.

I don't care. SSL is mostly just there so the lazy port sniffers don't delay with you.

As long as my system supports it out of the box, whatever.

*Bump*





This is the consequence of having phpbb. People will bump threads they care about.

You need to say "please do the needful", Ishy.

I used to work with a lot of Indians at my last shop. The term was always "We need to best practice this initiative."

Cert has been purchased, cwal.net was also renewed for another year and a transfer from godaddy to namecheap is currently going on between registrars. Presuming I set things up right on their nameservers, it should be a fairly seamless transition. Just the server here needs to configured for hotel.cwal.net rather than tank.cwal.net so that once the transfers settle out, the cert can be activated.

Wildcard cert may have been easier but shouldn't be an issue.

I should have done the nameserver xfer before doing the xfer of registrars, currently locked out of changing the nameservers, and GoDaddy is taking their sweet time releasing their hold on the domain, looking like it won't transition until right at, or shortly after ICANN's specified maximum time allowance for conducting an xfer at this point. Which is a really fucking stupid thing for them to do, that doesn't exactly endear me to their service as to possibly giving them business in the future, quite the opposite really.

Oh, the registry transfer failed because GoDaddy.

Will see about the name servers in the next couple days. After that is done will try again at getting away from GoDaddy.

Well, almost a week later, just made the initial Name Server change. We'll see what explodes in the next couple days I guess.
