Transport RSA Key Containers

We have a Message Bus application where messages are passed all around, from one application instance to another. This message traffic can be intranet, inter-domain or internet. We keep the messages safe from prying eyes by using RSA encryption (public keys are stored in databases). Now, the whole RSA encryption thing is a topic for another day (or just Google for more info, in case I never get around to writing that blog post). Today, I’m going to talk about what to do if you need to move one of your existing Message Bus deployments to another computer for some
reason (like the computer is old or dying and you need to replace it with new hardware). This new computer will not have your RSA KeyContainer. Creating a new KeyContainer with the same name doesn’t get you the same keys, obviously. All your messaging traffic comes to a screeching halt, because now the messages can’t be decrypted with these different keys.The solution is to copy your RSA KeyContainer to the new computer. I have a little utility application that I wrote that will read the RSA KeyContainer and write it to an XML file. The utility will also read from...(Read whole news on source site)

Writing doesn't necessarily always come naturally to me. It often takes me days, weeks or even months of toying with an idea, before I think it's mature enough to put it down into writing. I can't afford that luxury this time though, I wouldn't think of myself as much of a friend if Pieter didn't get to read this in time.

I met Pieter the first time in a bar in Vilnius, December 2013, I accidentally ended up sitting next to him during the traditional pre-conf drinks. The first thing that stood out, was what a comfortable

That's what I ended up doing that night - listening, sipping in the knowledge, afraid to make a fool out of myself joining the conversation.

That next day Pieter opened the conference with probably the most motivational keynote I ever attended, aptly titled "Building stuff changes everything"....(Read whole news on source site)
