Setting up a secondary FTP account for GoDaddy CPanel hosting requires different configuration than I expected. The trick is that while the primary FTP account uses SFTP, the secondary accounts need to be configured for FTP over TLS. This was a large enough headache for me that I share the details here so some others may be able to avoid the same issue.
In parts 1 and 2 of this series, I reviewed the difficult process of purchasing a personal certificate to use with S/MIME and the lengthy process required to get that certificate installed where Microsoft Outlook 2016 can use it for S/MIME signed email. This post will show how to send your public key to friends, where you and they can then finally send email encrypted with S/MIME.
n Part-1 of this series, I described the process of purchasing and installing a personal certificate. In my case, certificate was purchased from Entrust and I noted that once the purchase process was complete, the certificate exists for use in the Internet Explorer web browser, but that is all. With the purchase done, Microsoft Outlook will not yet utilize the certificate for purposes of S/MIME encrypted and signed email.
As a big fan of crypto, it has always rather amazed me that S/MIME hasn't had more success. We hear many accounts of users cannot handle the certificate management required to make something like PGP or S/MIME work. I have been doing some experiments and have concluded that we got it wrong; we are blaming the user when the right person to blame is ourselves. This post describes the first step of success, what it takes to "get a key".
Steve Ballmer is paraphrased in this ZDNet article saying "the company needs to ensure Windows Phone handsets can run Android apps". For a guy who spent more than 5 years writing system code for OS/2, the parallels to WinOS2 are pretty interesting. Here's the lesson: The operating system must stand on its own, or your just postpone it's death.
