SHA-1/SHA1 phased out and SHA256

by on Jun.18, 2015, under Tech

Recently, I been working on the web page ssl cert signature. It as come to my attention that it appear that Google Chrome browser will begin sun setting SHA1 algorithm cert. This means the browser will report your page is unsecured even with valid SSL cert installed. Other major browser such as Firefox and Internet Explorer will also follow the trail. Firefox and Chrome will slowly begin to show warning and error over the time until 1 Jan 2017. All 3 major browser will begin rejecting the SHA1 cert after 1 Jan 2017. In fact, developer looking at Firefox console already seeing the error. What surprise me is that Google website still using SHA1 at the time of this writing, I would assume they will be the first to move to SHA256. Well, maybe Google try to accommodate old device/browser.

So remember this date 1 Jan 2017 will be the last day before your boss knock on your door on this issue.

Side note: other crypto that also phase out

I been searching how to get a bicycle in Malaysia and cycle it in to Singapore. It appears that it is possible to cycle cross the border. Just follow the motorcycle lane even you are riding bicycle.

Good luck and happy riding.

by on May.12, 2015, under Personal

Again got my site migrated again, this time it going to byethost.com. It a free web hosting site which claim to have the fastest free web hosting server on earth. Well, I did some test with boxhost.me and freewebhosting.com. Boxhost.me seems fine for first few days then it randromly goes down after that, it not serious but I did not not to stay because it keep fail to update the plugin. Another provider is  freewebhosting.com which even worst, they wordpress wont even install correctly. After few hours trying and reinstall, I give up and move on.

So here I am with byethost.com, hope this page have a pleasure journey.

some history here,

After staying with Shinjiru for a year, my friend decide not to renew his site anymore, thus I move my domain to web server Malaysia. They provides free web hosting for every domain purchase. Unfortunately, their free web hosting so slow and i have to move to here.
