New certificates

Hey folks,

I just rolled out new startssl-signed class 2 certificates for several Domains, including the jabber Server and all jabber frontends. As they are all signed you should actually not notice any errors or warnings.

The current fingerprint for the jabber certificate is


I moved to the new policy of…

– signing all public services with officially signed certificates,
– signing all private services with my own certificate-authority.

One would think that having a “self”-signed certificate for jabber would actually not mattter, but the amount of TLS connected clients has doubled since the rollout of the new signed certs. Sigh.


Touched base with Linux back in 1995, got hooked up on it ever since. I am using Linux for both private and office for two decades. Working as a System Administrator at a medium sized hosting company I get in touch with all kinds of trouble. All of which can be solved with Linux. In my blog I am sharing solutions to problems that I had to search for myself in hope that someone else out there might find them useful.
