The second and final part of this post outlines specific software-related configurations that had to occur on the server-side in order to get everything set up and running. Please note that I am mostly going to emphasize on specific issues that I encountered here and refer you to the excellent DIY articles accordingly throughout this process.
This post serves as a step-by-step guide of how I configured some hardware I had on hand (and some which I purchased) and software configuration to create a low-power, all-purpose headless linux home server. I used a lot of excellent how-to-guides that exist and wanted to specifically document the hardware-specific issues that I experienced in getting my server set up and running. Let’s begin, as always in recipe form:
Part 2 of 2: Implementation Details/How-To
This two-part blog post is a guide on how to implement the specific hardware and software solution used as part of a quality improvement project for a primary care clinic to monitor fridge temperatures which contain vaccines.
Part 1 of 2: Introduction, Preamble, Hardware Requirements, Software Packages/Prerequisite Readings.
Time Required: 6-12 hours
Yields: A low-cost and accurate automatic temperature logging and notification device with a web-server interface.
Part 2/2: Yubikey Configuration and Integration with GPG, Thunderbird and Enigmail
I’d like to explain the basics of asymmetric encryption and then document my experience with setting up encryption keys with GnuPG (v2) and a Yubikey as a smart card interface to securely store secret keys using Linux.
Time Required: variable depending on your level of proficiency with Linux, GPG and Yubikey configuration tools
Yields: 1 PGP Key and 1 Yubikey-NEO with encryption and signing subkeys
Part 3/3: Post Installation Phase
< Part 1/3 – Introduction | Part 2/3 – Installation >
This final post will guide you through my post-installation tweaks for Lubuntu 14.04/14.10.
