OSCP/InfoSec Study Plan
I'm working on studying for the OSCP, and have developed a study plan, which you can view here. Right now I'm working on the Linux Assembly Megaprimer and the reading/labs in Practical Malware Analysis.
Continuous Delivery: Blog-style
I've been happily blogging using a static site generator, but am working on kicking it up a notch. Using Jenkins, AWS and Github, my goal is to create a post/blog delivery pipeline set up in such a way that all I have to do is commit a Markdown file to a GitHub repo and it automatically gets posted to my blog. So far I have the AWS/Jenkins infrastructure set up, now I just need to glue things together with some build jobs, bash scripts, etc.
Open Wireless Router Hardening
I participated in the Riscure/ThoughtWorks/EFF's Hackathon by conducting code reviews on the Open Wireless Router in order to help make the internet a more open, private place for everyone. Details are here and here
Failure Testing/DDoS Attack
I recently set up a basic web site in AWS (three web servers behind a load balancer with a separate back-end database) in order to do some stress testing and server attacks against my test servers. I used Netflix's Simian Army (and more specifically, their Chaos Monkey) for failure testing, and also BeesWithMachine Guns for a load test/DDoS attack.
