Top 25 Most Dangerous Programming Mistakes

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/15

10 years after the publication of the [WayBack] Top 25 Most Dangerous Programming Mistakes, the list for me is still the same.

You can see this from the CWE/SANS revisions: 1.0 in 2009 until 1.0.3 in 2011: not much changed.

oath-toolkit / oath-toolkit · GitLab

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/15

Cool library with ditto command-line tools: oath-toolkit / oath-toolkit · GitLab.

It allows you to perform all sorts of OAUTH operations from your code or terminal window including generation and verification of OAUTH tokens through [WayBackOATHTOOL.

Which allows you to do “zero fucktor” authentication. [WayBack] Zero Fucktor Authentication – Kristian Köhntopp – Google+: [WayBackZero Factor Authentication – The Isoblog.

The project has it’s home at [WayBackOATH Toolkit, but the repository has done some traveling and for now ended up at GitLab: oath-toolkit / oath-toolkit together with the web-site source oath-toolkit / website.

Interesting thought [WayBackIn windows, can I redirect stdout to a (named) pipe in command line? – Super User.

Reminder to self: see how widespread support for the TCP BBR congestion control algorithm is.

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/01/14

The TCP BBR congestion control algorithm was introduced in September 2016 and became available in Linux kernel 4.9 in July 2017 after being in the news for a good 5 months (see links below). It strives for better bandwidth use and lowering latency on big data pipes.

This post is a reminder myself to see how widespread that is on recent distributions for both end-user and server systems.
