acme - :lock: acmetool, an automatic certificate acquisition tool for ACME (Let's Encrypt)

  •    Go

acmetool is an easy-to-use command line tool for automatically acquiring certificates from ACME servers (such as Let's Encrypt). Designed to flexibly integrate into your webserver setup to enable automatic verification. Unlike the official Let's Encrypt client, this doesn't modify your web server configuration.You can perform verifications using port 80 or 443 (if you don't yet have a server running on one of them); via webroot; by configuring your webserver to proxy requests for /.well-known/acme-challenge/ to a special port (402) which acmetool can listen on; or by configuring your webserver not to listen on port 80, and instead running acmetool's built in HTTPS redirector (and challenge responder) on port 80. This is useful if all you want to do with port 80 is redirect people to port 443.

merlin - Merlin is a cross-platform post-exploitation HTTP/2 Command & Control server and agent written in golang

  •    PowerShell

Merlin is a cross-platform post-exploitation HTTP/2 Command & Control  server and agent written in golang. To facilitate ease of use, a TLS X.509 private and public certificate is distributed with Merlin. This allows a user to start using Merlin right away. However, this key is widely distributed and is considered public knowledge. You should generate your own certificates and replace the default certificates that ship with Merlin. The default location for the certificates is the data/x509 directory. The openssl command can be used from a Linux system to generate a key pair.
