Yesterday I disabled most insecure and outdated ciphers on my Jabber/XMPP server. Server to server and client to server communication is possible using encryption only. Forward secrecy is supported too. Currently I have only one cipher enabled, that does not support forward secrecy. That's because Pidgin seems not to support the other enabled ciphers. I will switch the XMPP client and will then disable this cipher too. You can see the result off a server check here:
This website forces HTTPS encryption from now on. All HTTP traffic will be redirected to HTTPS. I do this because I think every website should only be accessible via encypted data protocols.
Some time ago I thought about a concept for providing my public PGP key in a way, that makes it hard to compromise it. I decided to create a GitHub repository only for storing keys. I provide one key there and the same key also locally at hanez.org. You just can compare both keys and if they are the same it is very realistic that these keys are really mine. Take a look at the contact page to get my PGP key.
If you notice any problems, please contact me.
