Link: Introduction to Certificate Transparency for Server Operators

April 17, 2017

Alex Gaynor's Introduction to Certificate Transparency for Server Operators (via) is what it says in the title, and taught me some things about certificate transparency in practice. Sadly, one of the things it taught me is that once again Lighttpd seems to be coming up short as far as modern TLS goes. I really should switch over my personal site to using Apache, even if it will kind of be a pain because Fedora fumbled good Apache configuration.

(I also hadn't known about Cert Spotter, which has the advantage that you don't need a Facebook login to use it and thus don't have to helpfully (for Facebook) tie one or more domains to your Facebook login. All you need is an email address and on the modern Internet, you already need a source of individualized disposable ones.)
