Amazon just launched a new service called AWS Certificate Manager (ACM) as part of their ever growing suite of services. The new service allows for more or less one-click creation and deployment of free SSL certificates (yes, free). I used ACM to enable SSL on this very website and it didn’t cost me a dime. Anyone can set up SSL for their own custom domain name in no time at all with this new service.
From time to time, I have been known to accidentally type my password into a “username” prompt in a
bash shell. In that situation, the password you entered is now a part of your
~/.bash_history file forever, unless you truncate or redact it.
