Dockerfile with Bite Size Networking tools from b0rk

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/04/16

[WayBack] Ryan James Spencer on Twitter:

“I wrote a quick Dockerfile so people who purchase Bite Size Networking from  @b0rk can quickly have access to the tools. You can slim the image down to do debugging on docker networks once you get comfortable with which tools are most useful to you.”

He is planning to do more, so maybe a few of [WayBack] wizard zines get encapsulated into dockerfiles as well.


PS: [WayBack] Dockerfile | Docker Documentation

# N.B. The only tool missing here that is mentioned in the document is `zenmap`
# purely because this image is intended to be run via a CLI and `zenmap` is a GUI
# to `nmap` i.e. one can play around with the tools by running:
# $ docker build –name bite_size_networking:latest .
# $ docker run –rm -d –name bsn_test bite_size_networking:latest
# $ docker exec -it bsn_test bash
# Alternatively, one can change the `ENTRYPOINT` to `["bash"]` and run:
# $ docker run -it –name bsn_test bite_size_networking:latest
# then later (after exiting the shell):
# $ docker start bsn_test
# $ docker attach bsn_test
# One can also run this image on a docker network to capture packets and so
# forth for debugging purposes. Once you've found the tooling that best suits
# your needs, it may make sense to make a slimmed down version of this
# Dockerfile and, if wireguard isn't needed, base this image off
# `debian:stable` instead.
# Lastly, you can purchase Bite Size Networking or Julia's other fantastic
# zines over at
# We use `unstable` here since we install `wireguard` below

Helping the WayBack ArchiveTeam team: running their Warrior virtual appliance on ESXi

Posted by jpluimers on 2021/03/19

The [WayBack] Archiveteam helps the WayBack machine with feeding new content.

You can help that team by running one or more “warrior” virtual machine instances. The VM is distributed as a virtual appliance in an ova file according to the Open Virtualization Format.

That format sounds more generic than it actually is, so the (at the time of writing) archiveteam-warrior-v3-20171013.ova file at [WayBack] Index of /downloads/warrior3/ was created for VirtualBox.X

This meant running it on VMware ESXi or VMware vSphere takes a few steps for patching it, then uploading it to your VMware host.

Since I might want to run the appliance on multiple places or multiple instances, I wanted to have a ready-to-go solution, I created a git repository with both the patch instructions and the update at [WayBack] / public / ova / archiveteam-warrior-v3-20171013.ESXi · GitLab.
