Secuity Threats

I’ve added a new page which is dealing with security threats. Ok, it’s currently not much there. Nev­er­the­less it’s useful to me when seeking inform­a­tion in urgent situ­ations. Here we go…

This is what you’ve been waiting for :)

Great news, at least for me. Though, it is more small news, indeed: The menu at the left got too big, so it is folded now by default.

You don’t need to read any further, that’s all. Trust me, there’s nothing new except this sen­sa­tion­al report. :)

you guessed it: ipv6 … again :)

New tunnel back up. We’re using openvpn now for secure tunneling. Real great piece of software. It doesn’t rely on kernel modules or any other pro­pri­et­ary low-level add-on or operating-system linkage. It even runs on windows systems without problems! The new (and hopefully final) address range is 2001:1410:100:3210::/64. Check your dns for the current address alloc­a­tion within npw.net ;).

ipv6 again

The newly registered IPv6 tunnel is down again. Something went wrong, don’t actually know what. Nev­er­the­less, I won’t re-register with tun­nel­broker. I got a new IPv6-range from in-ulm.de, an Internet and net­work­ing asso­ci­ation from Ulm/Neu-Ulm, Germany. The latency will therefore decrease quite a lot, from approx­im­ately about 200400 ms to about 30ms from npw.net to the next hop.

I actually do not know when the tunnel (will be something encrypted) is ready, so IPv6 will be down for some days (weeks?).

ipv6

I finally managed to get a pro­duc­tion­al ipv6 address space that replaces my old 6Bone testing alloc­a­tion. It was kindly provided by JOIN. Just to mention.

I do not know when 6Bone is finally shut down, but it is time to change, I think. However, all npw.net services are again reachable through ipv6. Addi­tion­ally, I have added AAAA records to all the other *.npw.net sub­do­mains this morning.

Free 64-bit ipv6 subnets are available at tunnelbroker.net.

addendum

The less green the small boxes behind the menu items are, the longer they have been unat­ten­ded. If there is no green share left, nothing has been modified in the last three months (90 days).

up-to-dateness measuring

The (hopefully many) green blocks at the right side of the menue are indic­at­ors for when the pages, files or links behind the menu items were last modified. This may help you finding the most inter­est­ing and current inform­a­tion on this website. It is only a little gimmick, but … well it may be useful. It is at least for me. ;)
There are by the way several other func­tion­al­ity enhance­ments: menu items may now be collapsed for a better overview. The personal pref­er­ences are stored for the current session only, so when the browser is closed, the con­fig­ur­a­tion is lost. Nice and senseless, isn’t it :).

mail, mail, mail

Wow, 30 times more mails than on an average afternoon … about 300 times Sobig.F and the mail virus scanner did nothing. It didn’t update itself — don’t still know why — and didn’t even work at all. Well, much to do today but it finally is up again. :)

Addi­tion­ally, I’ve set up some new server SSL cer­ti­fic­ates for the services. The new ca cer­ti­fic­ate can be found here.

Mozilla imports the cer­ti­fic­ate without any problems.
The Internet Explorer (or whatever service is res­pos­ible for cer­ti­fic­ates in windows) is a bit trickier. Well, not that tricky, but you have to say that using the internet explorer, security concerns are always involved. Simply save the cert to disk, start the up-to-date virus scanner and let it examine the file — just to be save — and finally start it by double-clicking on its icon. Then follow the instruc­tions.
