Certificates 101 -- POSTPONED TO AUGUST

Online event

UPDATE 05/31- THIS PRESENTATION HAS BEEN POSTPONED UNTIL AUGUST due to low RSVPs. Hoping we will be meeting in person again by August and will plan to share this content at that time. Stay safe! THIS MEETING IS HOSTED ON THE MONTHLY DEV NIGHT! LEARN MORE AT SPRINGFIELD DEVS MEETUP (https://meetup.com/sgfdevs/). ** THIS EVENT WILL LIKELY BE HELD VIRTUALLY. MONITOR THIS PAGE FOR VIRTUAL OR PHYSICAL EVENT DETAILS. ** Secure Certificates. Every online project relies on them. No one seems to understand how they work. Almost no one likes working with them! Join us to learn more about Secure Certificates, including a brief history of SSL/TLS, manually inspecting certificate files, converting certificate file formats, automatic provisioning certificates, configuring and testing certificate-related settings, troubleshooting certificates on HTTPS and other servers, managing certificate expiration dates, and choosing between paid certificates vs the free certificates from AWS Certificate Manager (ACM) or Let's Encrypt. Demo #1 - Run free online Secure Certificate tests and discuss the results of each, including how to resolve common security problems shown in the test results. Demo #2 - Setup an ACM certificate for use with several AWS services. We'll walk through and discuss the setup options and when you might want to enable the expensive $$$ options. (hint: almost never) Demo #3 - Setup a Let's Encrypt (certbot) certificate on a public-facing EC2 server with a public IP address, using HTTP validation. Test and tune the server configuration. Demo #4 - Setup a Let's Encrypt (certbot) certificate on an internal EC2 server with a private IP address, using DNS validation (Route 53). Thanks to DNS validation, your server NEVER has to be public facing! Hosted by Jason Klein, Logic Forte (https://www.linkedin.com/in/jasnk/). Many of my past IT consulting customers still consider me their go-to contact for Secure Certificates. I have been assisting organizations with Secure Certificate needs and managing certificates for our hosting platform since the early 2000's. Our hosting company was an early adopter of the Let's Encrypt certificates, enabling secure websites for ALL of our customers while eliminating all secure certificate fees.
