Deploy Windows Virtual Desktop

Managing various operations in a virtualized environment usually calls for multiple tabs, each conforming to separate activities. Simplifying these operations and integrating them into a single GUI saves much time and effort to deal with other pressing matters. Windows Virtual Desktop can help you achieve just that from any host OS via Microsoft Azure.

How to Re-Encrypt Multiple SNIs on the same IP and port with a Kemp LoadMaster – PART 2

In Part I of this article, we discussed how to handle multiple SSL sites sharing the same IP address and port bound to multiple SSL certificates in regards to SNI decryption and re-encryption with Kemp LoadMaster. We discussed briefly how to achieve this creatively. With Kemp LoadMaster, you will need to leverage sub-virtual services (SubVSs) in combination with content rules to handle this scenario. We also use SSL decryption and re-encryption in order to support the clients and servers with different TLS versions. Re-encryption is handled at the virtual service (VS) level, not at the SubVS level. Meaning you can only enter one SNI name for re-encryption with a shared VIP. So, in the case of two or more SSL sites sharing the same IP address, you would have only one that works.

How to Re-Encrypt Multiple SNIs on the Same IP and Port with Kemp LoadMaster – PART 1

As you all know by now, it really is time to say goodbye to TLS 1.0/1.1. You might be ready to only offer and support TLS 1.2. Perhaps you can even add TLS 1.3 as well. Being able and willing to block TLS 1.0/1.1 is a good thing completely. Well done.

Deploying Django Project to AWS Elastic Beanstalk

In this blog post, we will talk about getting your Django project deployed to Amazon Web Services (AWS) platform. There are different ways you can do that with AWS: one is deployment to EC2 instance running Linux (you just connect to it over SSH and work with Linux server directly), and the other one is deployment to Elastic Beanstalk. The first scenario is close to simple project setup on a local Linux machine with some extra steps involved – for that you can refer to my previous posts which cover most of the steps involved. In this post, we will focus on Elastic Beanstalk deployment scenario, going through all the steps involved in this process when it is performed from Ubuntu.

Overview of Microsoft Azure Bastion

We all know that connecting production VMs directly to the Internet via a public IP is a huge concern from a cybersecurity standpoint. Therefore, usually, all critical VMs don’t have public IPs, and they are managed either from a site-to-site VPN or a console VM that holds a public IP. In both cases, managing your Azure VMs is not easy since cybersecurity is a concern.
