OpenSSL: How to generate a self-signed certificate and key with Elliptic Curves

The use of Elliptic Curves for cryptography is becoming more widely used in today’s internet. Basically, it allows for the same type of security as good old RSA, but with greater speed due to the smaller key sizes it uses compared to an RSA key. You can also generate a key based on the newer cryptography standard through OpenSSL like you would with an RSA key. Here’s how you can do it.

Need to readopt/reprovision that UniFi device to a new UniFi controller? Read here.

At some point, we need to move our UniFi devices to a new location or server. Sometimes we are unable to do that and need to go into our UniFi access points directly to reprovision them ourselves. Here’s how you can do just that whether you have one at home or 10 in the workplace.
