comment Is using the “IP Security Policies on Active Directory” settings in Group Policy a best practice?
Just want to comment setting this up on most modern Linux distros is not that difficult assuming the you're already using an enterprise CA as part of your builds.

comment is it possible to combine two vps in different locations into one?
You can have a shared file system but having a shared SSH is not really possible - you can use multissh for this though - it runs the commands against more than one host simutaneously

comment Import sample Active Directory into LDAP
To be fair LDAP import/export is definatey a server fault topic, especially when related to AD. Using it for testing is a different question but I think this it's fair for this to question to be here.

comment How to get a static IP for an EC instance? Or, how to use
In my console if I go to ElasticCache Dashboard > Cache Clusters > Nodes there is an "endpoint" listed that's a DNS name. These should be valid DNS entries

comment How to get a static IP for an EC instance? Or, how to use
Their intent is for you to use an ELB infront of your server so the apps point to it (via DNS) not an IP address. For RDS you should be ok since you're using DNS and it will update dynamically, same is true for Redis, use the DNS name, not the IP.

comment What are the benefits of connecting to MySQL using PHP-PDO's SSL attribute?
+ the added float point stuff done for the encryption - shouldn't be a big deal unless the server is bogged down (then CPU will get stressed) or you are doing a MASSIVE amount of SQL traffic (CPU again but we're talking 100's of meg a second transfer before it's a real issue). That's assuming you are encrypting, it may be possible to just authenticate the MySQL connection with SSL but not encrypt the data, I have not tried. It's not an issue in most circumstances.

comment blue zone ftp: change protocol from SSLv3 to TLS
Can't speak to the blue-zone stuff but there should be no need to change anything for clients, assuming they are capable of supporting TLS.

comment Nginx Reverse Proxy HTTP Interceptor
Easy enough to mirror incoming tcp traffic on port 80, assuming it's not encrypted. Look at netcat ("nc") .
