Self-hosting SSO with Nginx (Part 1): Keycloak
https://joeeey.com/blog/selfhosting-sso-with-nginx-keycloak-part-1/, posted 14 May by peter in development hosting howto security toread
There are many tools that we can use for SSO, such as Authelia, Authentik, or Keycloak.
Although some of the aforementioned SSO tools may be easier to set up, I decided to go with Keycloak. Keycloak is an enterprise-level tool that is supported by Redhat. Using Keycloak will give us a lot of flexibility, and ticks the boxes for acceptable memory usage, theme-ability, and multi-factor authentication support.

At the time, a gag order prevented him from discussing the details of his situation. But court documents unsealed on Wednesday reveal that the FBI wanted Levinson to hand over encryption keys that would have given federal agents "real time" access to not just Snowden's account, but the accounts of all 40,000 of Lavabit's customers. § [...] § He certainly deserves credit for his pluck. Levinson complied with the letter of the order, but he delivered the encryption keys as strings of numbers printed out on paper, rather than as electronic files. What's more, he intentionally printed them in a font designed to be hard to scan, one prosecutors described as "largely illegible."

Disqus, one of the largest Django applications in the world, will explain how they deal with scaling complexities in a small startup.
There are many benefits to keeping a lightweight stack. At Disqus, keeping the stack thin helps us scale Django to reach over 125 million unique visitors a month with just a small team of engineers. Avoiding complicated software packages until needed reduces unnecessary overhead, and has let us stay nimble, and use new capabilities in Django (i.e., database routing) and other software as they arise. The talk will cover key parts of the architecture and development process at Disqus, including databases (relational and non), queues, automated testing, and continuous deployment.

Guess what? Almost all capacity changes are foreseeable. If you had done proper capacity planning, you would have had two key advantages:
* You would have added the capacity before it was needed, guaranteeing that the proper capacity is always in place.
* You would have discovered any operational issues with Amazon S3 before they impacted your operations (and thus allow you to take alternative steps to deal with the situation).
