My use case is a Java application where no sensitive data being transmitted whatsoever, and the response being accurate (i.e. unmodified) is unimportant.
I’m doing certificate-based WiFi authentication (EAP-TLS). I have set up the CA server and in MMC console, I have added the certificate snap-in. In the certificate authority console, I’ve duplicated a certificate (RAS and IAS server) and imported it to the certificate template. I also enabled Certificate auto-enrollment in GPO. But when I send a request from SCEP client, I’m getting an IPSEC(Offline request) certificate. What changes should I make to make the CA provide the right certificate (RAS and IAS server certificate that I configured)?
If you need additional clarification, please ask me. Thanks a lot.
So I have been successful at disambiguating the hundreds of conflicting and incomplete stories about how to connect to a user account by SSH on a Centos 7 server.
Meaning So I can login in without a password and I am asked to verify my owner’s password on the certificate.
However, I cannot find an explanation about how to login by SSH as the ROOT user that does not focus on the sshd_config settings that refer to PermitRootLogin yes or without-passowrd or password-prohibited.
Based on my experience so far, the sshd_config settings will straighten out after the correct public keys are registered as host_keys in a valid location known to the AuthorizedKeysFile value setting in sshd_config.
There are a number of problems to avoid: 1. Centos 7 (current) encrypts the user folders preventing the SSH tools from reading the contents of the critical /user/.ssh folder. This requires the admin to create a folder for each user in /etc/ssh to hold the public_keys/authorized_keys for each user outside of the context of the user’s folder.
Centos 7 has limited the host_keys type values to ssh_host_rsa_key and ssh_host_rsa_ed25518_key, again in the sshd_config.
The only solution for managing the public keys of remote users so that the server can verify them that seems robust is referred to by the HostBasedAuthentication flag in sshd_config. But the actual solutions, described at https://www.ssh.com/ssh/host-key, and https://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/OpenSSH/Cookbook/Host-based_Authentication, seem to be overkill for any modest group of servers.
However, trying to re-utilize the method for creating private/public key pairs using ssh-keygen and ssh-copy-id’ing them to /etc/ssh/%u/authorized_keys folders proves to be extremely difficult when you want the rsa content to include the fully qualified name of the root@server_id. And trying to fake one from another user is unworkable.
So I’ve worked it to the point that I could set the sshd_config back to allowing password-based SSH logins for the the root@server-id to login from the client machine. But there is no local user and .ssh folder for that root@server-id user to use. So the rest of the normal ‘create an ssh login’ for a new user workflow cannot be completed.
So if anyone knows how this is actually accomplished, taking into account that just setting some flags in the sshd_config file isn’t enough, I’d appreciate your advice.
I want to know if it’s possible to get expiration date of my local machine(ubuntu 14.04) ssl certificates using python
Let’s say I’m using AWS Certificate Manager to get a certificate for
example.com for use with AWS CloudFront. I can specify an alternate domain of
www.example.com and point it to another CloudFront distribution in my DNS.
But AWS Certificate Manager also allows me to specify a wildcard
*.example.com as an alternate domain, which would allow me in the future to set my DNS to route
blog.example.com to yet another CloudFront distribution if I decided I needed that.
Is there any downside to adding a wildcard domain such as
*.example.com to the AWS Certificate Manager? Does it cost more? Does it make my configuration inflexible in some way? Why wouldn’t I want to always specify a wildcard
*.example.com as an alternate domain, as this gives me flexibility to add a subdomain in the future whenever I want to?
Definitions I’m using in this question:
- Main apiserver: the core kube-apiserver
- Extension apiserver: an addon like metrics-server
I am reading through the configure aggregation layer guide and I don’t understand the main apiserver’s use of
--requestheader-allowed-names. In section Kubernetes Apiserver Client Authentication it says:
The connection must be made using a client certificate whose CN is one of those listed in –requestheader-allowed-names. Note: You can set this option to blank as –requestheader-allowed-names=””. This will indicate to an extension apiserver that any CN is acceptable.
It makes it sound like the main apiserver is responsible for setting this. Surely the extension apiserver would be in control of this and determine what is acceptable? Why configure this on the main apiserver at all? I.e. The client certificate common names are what they are and it’s up to the extension apiserver to accept/reject these?
Or is that doc section mixing options that are passed to both the main and extension apiservers?
I am trying to renew my a site SSL, While I am using LetsEncrypt SSL Certificate for 3 years. Now says SSL certificates limit reached for pcsuite.net www.pcsuite.net. Please wait before obtaining another SSL. Now how much would I hove to wait to get another SSL certificate? As my all other sites are down right now.
I just noticed that I have more than a hundred installed certificates on a fresh installation of Ubuntu 18.04.

I have been running an Apache webserver on my machine for a long while, serving various sites via https. Recently I had to install a Nginx server on the same box, and set it up to reverse proxy most requests to the Apache webserver via port 8080. I can access the sites hosted on the Apache server, but the SSL certificate in use is still the one associated with the Nginx server, not the one referred to in the Apache .conf files. How can I direct Nginx to defer to Apache’s pre-configured SSL when it forwards a request?
