Trustico – “Trustico allows customers to generate a Certificate Signing Request and Private Key during the ordering process. These Private Keys are stored in cold storage, for the purpose of revocation.”


Trustico – “In accordance with CAB Forum guidelines we acted to immediately revoke active SSL Certificates whereby trust was questionable.”

This of course meant they emailed 23,000 private keys to Digicert for revocation.


Why? – “Trustico is in the process of terminating their

relationship with Digicert and switching to Comodo for issuance”


Comodo – “

We also asked Trustico to cease offering any tools to generate and/or

retain customer private keys.  They have complied with this request and

have confirmed that they do not intend to offer any such tools again in

the future.


Trustico have also confirmed to us that they were not, and are not, in

possession of the private keys that correspond to any of the

certificates that they have requested for their customers through Comodo CA.

Geany Code Editor

https://www.geany.org/ release 1.33

Released under the GPL


Geany is a small and lightweight IDE – Integrated Development Environment. It was developed to provide a small and fast IDE, which has only a few dependencies from other packages. Another goal was to be as independent as possible from a special Desktop Environment like KDE or GNOME – Geany only requires the GTK2 runtime libraries.


Google Skaffold


Skaffold is a command line tool that facilitates continuous development for Kubernetes applications. You can iterate on your application source code locally then deploy to local or remote Kubernetes clusters. Skaffold handles the workflow for building, pushing and deploying your application. It can also be used in an automated context such as a CI/CD pipeline to leverage the same workflow and tooling when moving applications to production.


There’s also https://www.telepresence.io/ which can swap and hot re-deploy containers for you. Telepresence substitutes a two-way network proxy for your normal pod running in the Kubernetes cluster. This pod proxies data from your Kubernetes environment (e.g., TCP connections, environment variables, volumes) to the local process. The local process has its networking transparently overridden so that DNS calls and TCP connections are routed through the proxy to the remote Kubernetes cluster.
