  2. Pre-Req that you have openssl installed on your linux box. I utilize Centos 7 but you can use any Linux distribution you prefer. Let's first discuss the different formats PEM Format The PEM format is the most common format that Certificate Authorities issue certificates in. PEM certificates usually have extentions such as .pem, .crt, .cer, and .key. They are Base64 encoded ASCII files and contain "-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----" and "-----END CERTIFICATE-----" statements. Server certificates, intermediate certificates, and private keys can all be put into the PEM format. Apache and other similar servers use PEM format certificates. Several PEM certificates, and even the private key, can be included in one file, one below the other, but most platforms, such as Apache, expect the certificates and private key to be in separate files. DER Format The DER format is simply a binary form of a certificate instead of the ASCII PEM format. It sometimes has a file extension of .der but it often has a file extension of .cer so the only way to tell the difference between a DER .cer file and a PEM .cer file is to open it in a text editor and look for the BEGIN/END statements. All types of certificates and private keys can be encoded in DER format. DER is typically used with Java platforms. The SSL Converter can only convert certificates to DER format. If you need to convert a private key to DER, please use the OpenSSL commands on this page. PKCS#7/P7B Format The PKCS#7 or P7B format is usually stored in Base64 ASCII format and has a file extention of .p7b or .p7c. P7B certificates contain "-----BEGIN PKCS7-----" and "-----END PKCS7-----" statements. A P7B file only contains certificates and chain certificates, not the private key. Several platforms support P7B files including Microsoft Windows and Java Tomcat. PKCS#12/PFX Format The PKCS#12 or PFX format is a binary format for storing the server certificate, any intermediate certificates, and the private key in one encryptable file. PFX files usually have extensions such as .pfx and .p12. PFX files are typically used on Windows machines to import and export certificates and private keys. When converting a PFX file to PEM format, OpenSSL will put all the certificates and the private key into a single file. You will need to open the file in a text editor and copy each certificate and private key (including the BEGIN/END statments) to its own individual text file and save them as certificate.cer, CACert.cer, and privateKey.key respectively. Now for the commands.... Convert x509 to PEM openssl x509 -in certificatename.cer -outform PEM -out certificatename.pem Convert PEM to DER openssl x509 -outform der -in certificatename.pem -out certificatename.der Convert DER to PEM openssl x509 -inform der -in certificatename.der -out certificatename.pem Convert PEM to P7B Note: The PKCS#7 or P7B format is stored in Base64 ASCII format and has a file extension of .p7b or .p7c. A P7B file only contains certificates and chain certificates (Intermediate CAs), not the private key. The most common platforms that support P7B files are Microsoft Windows and Java Tomcat. openssl crl2pkcs7 -nocrl -certfile certificatename.pem -out certificatename.p7b -certfile CACert.cer Convert PKCS7 to PEM openssl pkcs7 -print_certs -in certificatename.p7b -out certificatename.pem Convert pfx to PEM Note: The PKCS#12 or PFX format is a binary format for storing the server certificate, intermediate certificates, and the private key in one encryptable file. PFX files usually have extensions such as .pfx and .p12. PFX files are typically used on Windows machines to import and export certificates and private keys. openssl pkcs12 -in certificatename.pfx -out certificatename.pem Convert PFX to PKCS#8 Note: This requires 2 commands STEP 1: Convert PFX to PEM openssl pkcs12 -in certificatename.pfx -nocerts -nodes -out certificatename.pem STEP 2: Convert PEM to PKCS8 openSSL pkcs8 -in certificatename.pem -topk8 -nocrypt -out certificatename.pk8 Convert P7B to PFX Note: This requires 2 commands STEP 1: Convert P7B to CER openssl pkcs7 -print_certs -in certificatename.p7b -out certificatename.cer STEP 2: Convert CER and Private Key to PFX openssl pkcs12 -export -in certificatename.cer -inkey privateKey.key -out certificatename.pfx -certfile cacert.cer another example openssl pkcs12 -export -inkey zahsystems.com.key -in zahsystems.crt -certfile L1k.Chain.Bundle.2018.crt -out zahsystems.pfx

  5. My name is Rev.Dennis and I was born and raised Christian Catholic by my parents. Every Sunday we went to church and sat, kneeled and stood as the Priest tried to communicate with us what he believed we needed to know. For a few years I was an alter boy at St.Daniels Catholic church in Clarkston, Michigan which was better than sitting, kneeling and standing in a pew. Still at a young age I didn’t understand why we were forced to go to church every Sunday when obviously there was more fun things to do. I joined the Air Force while I was still in Brandon High School and was on the Delayed Enlistment Program so when I graduated I could go to basic training at Lackland Air Force Base. During the service I became closer to God and religion after I have had several close calls. I am now a non-denominational minister. I originally became an ordained minister to marry friends and family. As soon as I was ordained I felt this was a very big responsibility and started doing research. Read a bunch of books and I’m still the same person as I was just more aware of the significance of being labeled as a minister. I’m not just someone who can marry you but I can also be a friend, someone you can talk to or ask advice. When you need someone to lean or when you feel your faith is failing you, I can be there.
  6. This is our website to share and collaborate on whats important, believing, being good to each other. Why Believe? Why not Believe? Many times I get asked, "Why is it so important to believe?" I wonder how you can not believe. Everyone has been in a time in there life they weren't sure how they got through it. Maybe you feel unlucky because you don't win the lottery or get the person you want but God above has a plan for you. Just open your eyes, your heart and your soul and you'll see it. Just believe and it comes easy. You are never alone It is very easy to feel alone especially when times are rough and it feels the weight of the world is pushing you down. You have us, you have God and you have your faith which will keep you strong. Being open to receive his gift So many have a difficult time opening there heart and mind to the gift God wants to share with you. Everyone believes differently and none of them are wrong. What’s important is believing.
  7. This is more like notes on how to use Wireshark so probably won't find a very in depth discussion but hopefully enough to get you going. You should have wireshark already installed. Capturing Packets On the menu, click Capture - Options Click the name of an interface under Interface List to start capturing packets on that interface. For example, if you want to capture traffic on the wireless network, click your wireless interface. As soon as you click Start, you’ll see the packets start to appear in real time. Wireshark captures each packet sent to or from your system. If you’re capturing on a wireless interface and have promiscuous mode enabled in your capture options, you’ll also see other the other packets on the network.
  8. NAME HISTORY LESSON Trying to find what feels good. We use to be called hosang I.T. but I didn't like sharing my name because of all the spam that goes with it. Before my divorce we were called MyWiseGuys but the divorce caused a lot of bad blood and a pizza company in Flint, Wise Guys Pizza stole my registered logo. So in thinking of a new name for the tech side of the house that I could reflect my kids which I love more than anything, so I came up with ZAh Systems which stands for Zackary Alex Hosang (ZAH). In the end we are just using MyWiseGuys for everything since its truly a hobby site and not a business. It's easier to maintain one website versus several plus MyWiseGuys is a LLC so some protection is in place. What are we about? Truthfully I love helping people figure things out on there own. I don't mind receiving donations of a few dollars if you find that the information I provided just saved your job or a lot of time. The money really goes towards keeping the website up and buying me a case of good beer. I also throw some money at the site to make it a bit nicer. As you can see, I don't get much money since the site is in dire need of a face lift. Also the website is used for reference. Many of us that work on tech stuff all day can't remember everything but if we posted it on a site such as this it would help us in the future when we need to do that task or similar task again. Of course in the meantime it helps anyone else doing the same thing. Of course this relies on more than just myself to contribute to the site. It appears mostly I get spammers and hackers on the site trying to advertise crap for sale but for the few of you that register to contribute I appreciate it and so do others that rely on the site to help them do there job. Currently the information is free but there may eventually be subscriptions for a dirt cheap price for training material and tests. Not positive I'll get to this but its a possibility.

  14. Yea yea, I know this title is very generic and yes we all like to bag on Microsoft but this is more of a very high level side by side with Microsofts product, Windows. Why is Wordpress like Windows? They both are slow over time. The more you add the slower it gets. The more software, plugins you add the slower it gets. They are both very insecure and require a separate security package. Here is my experience with Wordpress since this is all just a learning experiment. I built a community on Joomla using Kunena as a forum and EasyBlog as my blog and eDocman as my File Management and I forget what I used for my Media. The site was quick but again, security was a big hole. First I noticed tons of issues with Kunena so I moved to phpBB3 which was and is a fantastic forum package but its 3rd party so you need to use a bridge to integrate into your Joomla site and that takes resources and you would occasionally get a sync error between Joomla and phpBB3. When you are using software that isn't fully integrated then you discover issues like the search plugin doesn't search everything. So I did some research and Wordpress is the most used web software, just like Microsoft Windows is the most used operating system but what the most have in common is price. Windows is cheap in comparison and likewise Wordpress is free. So obviously free typically attracts tons of people. Now Joomla is also free but with both Wordpress and Joomla what isn't free are all the addons needed to make it a usable site and now you depend on the developers of those addons to keep them up to date and support. In my experience some addon companies were better than others for both Joomla and Wordpress addons. I like Wordpress plugin manager way better with the reviews, easy to search for type of plugin where Joomla is more like a Sears catalog where you have to find the category and hope you pick the right one. Most addons are free to install but if you want any real functionality you have to pay for the upgrade and the payment is a yearly subscription. No longer are the days where you buy a plugin and you own it. Now you subscribe for a pretty hefty price and you keep paying "the man" or you will get infected. So as you see I settled on a web software that has all those addons (files, calendar, blog, etc) included. Yes I have to pay $210/year for the software but that includes all the updates to maintain the software and very quick response for support. If you go for a free solution like Wordpress or Joomla be prepared to pay way more than $210 for less functionality. Let me share some examples so you know I'm not just blowing smoke.
