  • How to install and configure pCloud on elementary OS

    PCloud Drive is utterly one of the best desktop cloud clients available in the 21st century. It has an intuitive user interface and is generally simple to use. You will love that pCloud is a desktop cloud client that is cross-platform and is almost the only cloud storage provider with a lifetime plan. pCloud Drive is also a cross-platform application with clients available for Windows, macOS, and Linux.

    pCloud originates from Switzerland, and its core business is the provision of cloud storage services. By default, you are given 10GB of space when you sign up for the service. As one of their assurances to their clients, they hosted a pCloud Crypto challenge to attempt and break their client-side encryption, but hackers thought the world failed. Thus, pCloud considers client security one of their biggest competitive edges and should excite their clients very much.

  • Louis-Philippe Véronneau: Preventing an OpenPGP Smartcard from caching the PIN eternally

    process wasn't entirely seamless and I had to hack around some issues, for example the PIN caching behavior in GnuPG.

    As described in this bug the cache-ttl parameter in GnuPG is not implemented and thus does nothing. This means once you type in your PIN, it is cached for as long as the token is plugged.

    Security-wise, this is not great. Instead of manually disconnecting the token frequently, I've come up with a script that restarts scdameon if the token hasn't been used during the last X minutes.

  • Self-host a Ghost Blog With Traefik

    Ghost is a very popular open-source content management system. Started as an alternative to WordPress and it went on to become an alternative to Substack by focusing on membership and newsletter. The creators of Ghost offer managed Pro hosting but it may not fit everyone's budget. Alternatively, you can self-host it on your own cloud servers. On Linux handbook, we already have a guide on deploying Ghost with Docker in a reverse proxy setup. Instead of Ngnix reverse proxy, you can also use another software called Traefik with Docker. It is a popular open-source cloud-native application proxy, API Gateway, Edge-router, and more. I use Traefik to secure my websites using an SSL certificate obtained from Let's Encrypt. Once deployed, Traefik can automatically manage your certificates and their renewals. In this tutorial, I'll share the necessary steps for deploying a Ghost blog with Docker and Traefik.
