I'm a unix sysadmin, working as a consultant at Init AB (www.init.se). My main focus is unix security and PKI; I work a lot with the open-source CA system EJBCA.

Previous jobs include sysadmin in charge of security related systems at a large bank, and mail servers at a largish ISP, including handling abuse and spam issues.

@JoelL Could be monitored - yes, absolutely. Is actively monitored - not necessarily.

And since you don't know, there's no way for anyone to answer your question. If you're using SSL, then it's less likely that someone would be able to see the contents of the page (though still not impossible, depending on their setup). Whether anyone actually does notice will depend on your company policy - which, again, nobody else can answer.

There's not enough information here to be able to give you any answer other than "maybe, but probably not".

comment Creating my own CA for an intranet
@André as regards EJBCA, it can be used from the command line too, so you won't have to expose the web interface. But it's an enterprise-level thing and probably overkill for your purposes (and I say this as someone who makes a living working with it).

comment How can I stop an IP from trying to use my mail server?
@sebix That question also contains answers on how to stop spam from reaching the server, e.g. by using blocklists. I agree that this question is more of a fit for Serverfault, but once it gets there it's likely to be closed as a duplicate.

comment How to transform an hash into a usable password?
A number of years ago, the place where I worked had a similar app to set and get passwords for the servers. The app combined a random string (which was the same for all servers, and changed regularly) with the server's hostname and the username of the account to which the password applied. It was secure enough for our purposes, which is not to say that it would be secure enough for everyone.
