Automated SSL certificate management for private containers

Anurag Bhatia
Lately, I have been playing with many tools and as one gets into deploying those tools, SSL comes as a pain point. A large number of web-based tools I use are internal and on a private network. VPN (with OSPF running over FRR) takes care of connectivity but still, it’s good to have SSL on these machines.

Manage Wireguard users using Ansible

Day 16 of lockdown here in Haryana due to Covid19. Time for some distraction. Last week it was reported that Wireguard will be added in next version of Linux kernel. I have been using Wireguard from over a year and it has been working great. I replaced OpenVPN with Wireguard for both site to site VPN as well as client-server VPN. If you are looking for a free open source VPN for remote employees or just connecting to your own remote servers Wireguard can be a really good candidate.
