This awesome thing made my blog moved to https with A+ rating. There are few steps to patch nginx.
The very first thing is to install certbot for your system, check this. I did this with flag «--manual».
certbot certonly --manual
I also created secure Diffie-Hellman group with the following:
openssl dhparam -out /etc/ssl/certs/dhparam.pem 2048
Finally added few strings to my nginx site.
listen 443 ssl;
listen [::]:443 ssl;
ssl_protocols TLSv1 TLSv1.1 TLSv1.2;
ssl_ecdh_curve secp384r1; # Requires nginx >= 1.1.0
ssl_session_tickets off; # Requires nginx >= 1.5.9
ssl_stapling on; # Requires nginx >= 1.3.7
ssl_stapling_verify on; # Requires nginx => 1.3.7
resolver 126.96.36.199 188.8.131.52 valid=300s;
add_header Strict-Transport-Security "max-age=63072000; includeSubDomains; preload";
add_header X-Frame-Options DENY;
add_header X-Content-Type-Options nosniff;
By reloading nginx we can go ahead and check out https. 301 redirects HTTP → HTTPS are the rest to polish overall configuration! That's it!
