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 .
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
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
So that’s the first linkdump. Hope you like it.
