Ubiquiti UniFi Controller

Back in episode #220 I went through how to get a cloud-hosted UniFi controller setup so you could do cool things like implement a voucher system for your guests. A next natural step is securing the controller with a proper SSL cert, and thanks to this great article from Steve Jenkins, it's not as hard as it might look. I use it as the backbone of my video demo below.

Nessus

My cloud-hosted Ubuntu box also has a Nessus scanner on it so I can keep an eye on my other cloud assets. This article did a nice job of summing up the cert-install steps, which basically boil down to stopping the nessusd service, copying some of the certificate files and restarting the service.
