Constructing Suffix Trees: Ukkonen’s algorithm – Wikipedia

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/10/12

For my link archive:

I also need to check out [WayBack] Martin Farach-Colton – Wikipedia, as his algorithm is likely more optimised and more versatile.

GitHub – proxykit/ProxyKit: A toolkit to create code-first HTTP reverse proxies on ASP.NET Core

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/09/28

Interesting: [] GitHub – proxykit/ProxyKit: A toolkit to create code-first HTTP reverse proxies on ASP.NET Core:

Having built proxies many times before, I felt it is time to make a package. Forked from ASP.NET labs, it has been heavily modified with a different API, to facilitate a wider variety of proxying scenarios (i.e. routing based on a JWT claim) and interception of the proxy requests / responses for customization of headers and (optionally) request / response bodies. It also uses HttpClientFactory internally that will mitigate against DNS caching issues making it suitable for microservice / container environments.

Twitter thread by thread by @0xdade; More unicode shit: zero width space and a zero width nonjoiner in filenames

Today I learned that you can put zero width spaces in file names on Linux. Have fun.

I’m playing with this because punycode/IDN is fascinating, and I wanted to know what happened when I started shoving unicode in the path portion of the url, which isn’t part of how browsers try to protect URLs, as far as I can tell…

I think it’s more entertaining to have a file that is named *only* a zero width space, but I think using them throughout a filename is better to break tab completion and not stand out too much. A filename that is just blank looks strange in ls output.
Thank goodness adduser is looking out for our best interests.
Oooh this one is pretty subtle.
Just about pissed myself with this one.

Not related to the terminal fun, but related to zero width characters:

You can:
– Break url previews https://0xda​​​​​​.​de
– @​0xdade without tagging
– Make a word like system​d not searchable…

Okay but back to command line crap. I really like this one. Create a directory named .[ZWS]

One thing that is cool about using zero width spaces is that “ls” has a flag, “-b”, that is meant to escape non-graphic characters. Inserting a newline, for instance, would be escaped to \n. But the zero width space is technically a graphic character, so nothing happens.


Have no fear, though. It’s not unbeatable. It’s only fun if the language and LC settings are set to support utf-8. If you set LC_ALL=C or whatever that isn’t utf-8, then it looks like this.

Putting a link to this tweet here so that I don’t lose it again in the future.


My god, it is beautiful. I mean except all the whitespace I can’t get rid of before the command lmao.

But on the other hand if you just have a search for the zws, then whatever you find is probably worth investigating. 
I guess I’ll start the hashtag before @QW5kcmV3 does for #irresponsibleutf8 🤭😏😂 

And these tweets:

This is a list of methods for messing with urls. These are often useful for bypassing filters, SSRF, or creating convincing links that are difficult to differentiate from legitimate urls.
