Hooray! Today I got #HardenedBSD working as a network sentry for work. Finally got all the nmap tuning worked out to be both reasonably quick and accurate, and there's plenty of horsepower left over for us to scan our sites and services for vulnerabilities, if the right departments sign off on it.
Got my #bsdstart about 2yrs ago, when I started playing with ZFS, found ZoL lacking, and starting bouncing between #FreeBSD, #DragonFlyBSD, and #HardenedBSD. Found that they could all do everything I needed my Linux installs to do, and generally do them better in one way or another. Even starting to replace Linux with *BSD at work because of all the awesome features available.
I have a love/hate relationship with designing and implementing solutions at work. On the one hand it's crazy fun, but on the other, it can get pretty draining, making it harder to get side projects done.
At least there's always PTO
Anyone happen to have a link to documentation on setting up #OpenSMTPD withe #SQLite3 tables? I was using https://hugo.barrera.io/journal/2015/02/15/opensmtpd-dovecot-shared-sql-db/ as a reference, but now it's giving me a 404.
Today I swapped out hiawatha for OpenBSD's httpd(8). I'm really liking the more familiar syntax, and the additional simplicity that it introduces to managing exile.digital
To whoever was trying to brute force their way into exile.digital from 126.96.36.199, thanks for all the extra usernames I can add to the blacklist! Sorry it's taken so long for me to thank you for this information.
I think I'm starting to get to the point where the number of devices I have can no longer be safely run off of surge protectors...
When I can afford to build a house, I'm gonna need to run a lot of power sockets to my datacenter and workshop. Also, live somewhere with cheap power, and get solar panels, maybe live by a river to set up a water wheel
And, finally, an (expensive) RISC-V board ready for a #BSD port :)
Anyone at FOSDEM can tell me what runs already on it? I cannot afford it but I can drool…
@qrs you got anything on this baby?
In addition to ideally running a RISC CPU like MIPS, POWER, or RISC-V, it'd be really nice if my next laptop had a few extra M.2 slots so I can (hopefully) take advantage of some of these cool new projects like an M.2 SDR and FPGA
IF you're looking for a quick guide on how to create an encrypted disk image, I just posted something on my blog: https://www.blackcatenterprises.co/2018/02/01/creating-a-virtual-encrypted-disk-in-openbsd/
I'm really beginning to like structs in C. I really wish I'd been able to get into this sooner, instead of dealing with all that C++ silliness that my instructors went though.
Including, but not limited to: NOT EXPLAINING HOW AWESOME AND FRUSTRATING POINTERS CAN BE! Seriously, they're great, but can be a PITA at times
I should double check to see if Vultr gave me an ipv6 address to use as well as an ipv4 address. Could be nice to start using ip6
It's frustrating trying to test the code I wrote using #HardenedBSD or #DragonFlyBSD on Void, or really any Linux. If it fails to build, odds are I don't have any of the necessary manual pages to actually fix it.
How the heck do people ever write anything useful without having the manpages available?
