Free Signed SSL Cert

I run a few things on an Ubuntu server sitting under my desk at home and have used self-signed certificates usually, but there are free Certificate Authorities including startssl.com which are readily available for personal use like running your ownCloud.

Here's a good write-up on how to do this in Ubuntu:

And the results look swell:SSL Labs

/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/ssl

NameVirtualHost *:443
<VirtualHost *:443>
        SSLEngine On

        SSLProtocol all -SSLv2
        SSLCipherSuite ALL:!ADH:!EXPORT:!SSLv2:RC4+RSA:+HIGH:+MEDIUM
        SSLCertificateChainFile /etc/apache2/ssl/sub.class1.server.ca.pem
        SSLCertificateFile /etc/apache2/ssl/alia.thenibble.org.crt
        SSLCertificateKeyFile /etc/apache2/ssl/alia.thenibble.org.pem

        DocumentRoot /var/www/

        ServerAdmin webmaster@thenibble.org
