POSHChef/POSHChef · GitHub – POSHChef has been built as a native chef client on Windows using PowerShell. Although support for Windows platforms in Chef is continually expanding the way it is implemented means that developers and system administrators need to understand Ruby in order to correctly write recipes and cookbooks. In addition it is not easy to test any PowerShell code that has been written as it is passed to a Chef recource, which is running under Ruby, and then it is executed using a call to 'powershell.exe'.

5 easy tips to accelerate SSL – Unhandled expression – SSL is slow. These cryptographic algorithms eat the CPU, there is too much traffic, it is too hard to deploy correctly. SSL is slow. Isn’t it? HELL NO! SSL looks slow, because you did not even try to optimize it!

Integrate Active Directory and OpenLDAP | Networking content from Windows IT Pro – OpenLDAP’s proxy service can allow LDAP operations to cross the boundaries between AD and OpenLDAP deployments. To demonstrate this proxy service, we walk through the steps to make AD’s cn=Users container, which by default contains all user objects, part of an OpenLDAP directory. To produce the examples in this article, I used CentOS 4.3, OpenLDAP 2.2.13, and AD running on Windows Server 2003 R2. Later in the article, I’ll show you a limitation in the commonly deployed OpenLDAP 2.2, which you can solve by installing OpenLDAP 2.3 on CentOS 4.3.
Let’s Chat — Self-hosted chat for small teams – WHAT IS THIS THING? Some backstory. Way back in 2012, we didn't like any of the existing chat services out there. So we decided to write our own. Let's Chat is a persistent messaging application that runs on Node.js and MongoDB. It's designed to be easily deployable and fits well with small, intimate teams. It's free (MIT licensed) and ships with killer features such as LDAP/Kerberos authentication, a REST-like API and XMPP support. Let's Chat is a side-project of the development team at Security Compass. (A real life 10% time project!)
