I’m not sure how long ago I started following Dirk Deimekes Blog. It must be years, because I found the rss feed address already in my Google reader export.
First of all I need to thank him, it is always a good read and that’s the reason I want to adopt one of his weekly habits – the linkdump. Not sure if I can do that weekly, but will try to post a linkdump of the best articles I read from my wallabag list. It will cover nearly everything I do, so working, IBM, Security and so on.
- Vim-Galore is a cool intro and reference to my favorite editor.
- Disable HTTP trace in Apache shows an important point to give the smallest footprint possible.
- HTTPie is a command line HTTP client. Its goal is to make CLI interaction with web services as human-friendly as possible. So if you can’t talk HTTP in telnet, that’s a nice tool.
- Doing your own SSL/TLS testing gives a good intro to the most important parts of SSL security. I like that tool, because you can run it without internet or public accessible host and it gives you more information than nmap ssl-enum-ciphers or Openssl.
- During Social Connections 12 in Vienna I showed a starter on ansible to prepare and install software. Here the Best practices to build great Ansible playbooks
- I do more and more security and forensic things the last years and so I use the tools for troubleshooting and analyze ICS software too. A good tool to record network traffic on servers is tcpdump, which writes pcap and so can be analyzed with Python Scapy or Wireshark. A tcpdump Tutorial and Primer with Examples
- How “Exit Traps” Can Make Your Bash Scripts Way More Robust And Reliable
- Containers and microservices get more important each day – 50+ useful Docker tools
- An interesting write-up on IoT in our houses and flats. Have a look at it and think about if you need a cam which sends your naked butt to a cloud service. The house that spied on me
- More links: The complete list of Infosec related cheat sheets
So that’s the first linkdump. Hope you like it.
