@mwlucas in your section on being your own CA, are you covering openssl native commands? what about multi-level/intermediate CAs and setting CA path length maximums? I ask since I recently had to integrate a system that wanted to be its own CA, and I was like 'nah, I already got a CA' so I delegated it a sub CA with restrictions.
(yes, I have an overly complex home network)
@philpennock @22decembre @mwlucas I just uses the standard CA infrastructure that everyone else uses. Is that 'too big to fail'? I think you HAVE to support the CA infrastructure; but that doesn't mean you need to ONLY support the CA infrastructure, and you get enough things ALSO supporting DANE, and you can slowly ween people off of the CAs... kinda like how we're trying to get IPv6, or ESNI, or even SNI in the first place
But the question is 'why?' they don't love the CA cartel, they've undercut the CAs at every opportunity. Their solutions of certificate pinning, certificate transparency, have been shown to be snakeoil and crap at every turn... What do they get by opposing DANE/DNSSEC... ESPECIALLY as they support a DNS powered ESNI?
Google's take is likewise poor.
I think a grassroots campaign needs to be waged. Start embedding it in projects and libraries. For example imagine if mastodon for its federation protocol supported DANE.
@mwlucas We need to get DANE adopted, all of these CA SSL workarounds just SUCK.
And with ESNI they're not even bothering to pretend that a DNS lookup per request or putting public key information in DNS is "bad" anymore,
@bcallah I think you could get away with less oil... ;)
@lattera 100gb of memory?! 😱
@bcallah last 4 months?! It is still March!
@bcallah it is still March!!
@phryk what about the shell?
@mwlucas ok. Had to look it up. Like 99% it is the alpine 3808. If not this very very close. Definitely dual huge power supplies and all those fans
@mwlucas summit 48. Remember when that was top of the line!! We gad 4? Of those when i was in charge of rpics. And then they all connected to an even bigger extreme networks modular chasis whose name is escaping me at the moment!
