sslip.io, free wildcard SSL certificate for everyone

while we are waiting for free and open Certificate Authority “Lets Encrypt”, we got a new option.

sslip.io gives a subdomain based upon your ip and you just need to set up SSL key which released at GitHub to your server.

Finally you will have a ip based SSL subdomain address e.g.  https://52-0-56-137.sslip.io/

Detail of SSLip.

 

 

Amazon introduces alternate TLS implementation s2n

s2n_logo

Amazon Web Services introduced s2n; an Open Source implementation of the TLS protocol.  s2n is a library that has been designed to be small, fast, with simplicity as a priority. s2n avoids implementing rarely used options and extensions, and today is just more than 6,000 lines of code. As a result of this, Amazon developers expected  that it is easier to review s2n; they have already completed three external security evaluations and penetration tests on s2n, a practice we will be continuing.
