Tue, 12/26/2017 - 11:36

“Today i finally recognized that unit tests are a critical part of my programming flow” — Ashley Williams, Twitter.

Long-time Node.js advocate Ashley Williams kicked off her recent Twitter thread in the same sort of stream of consciousness that many devs go through when they are coming to terms with the truth: Unit testing is annoying but necessary.

The State of Netbooting Raspberry Pis

Tue, 12/26/2017 - 10:30

I'm going to walk you through a few of the pieces involved in net-booting a Raspberry Pi and then talk about the challenges of running cloud native apps on a net-booted RPi.

It's undeniable - Raspberry Pis capture the imagination of techies of all ages. Combine several Raspberry Pis into a cluster and you now have an x10 or x100 multiplier, but there are some problems with SD Cards. Netbooting is meant to fix this - but there are some limitations to its usefulness.

Fuzzing: An Old Testing Technique Comes of Age

Fri, 12/22/2017 - 07:30

Both proprietary and open source development tends to have more developers than testers. As a result, automated testing has become increasingly common. In the last year, fuzzing — testing with dummy or random data — has become particularly widespread, and its popularity seems likely to continue.

8 Takeaways from NIST’s Application Container Security Guide

Fri, 12/22/2017 - 06:00

Companies are leveraging containers on a massive scale to rapidly package and deliver software applications. But because it is difficult for organizations to see the components and dependencies in all their container images, the security risks associated with containerized software delivery has become a hot topic in DevOps.

How To Tell If Your Linux Server Has Been Compromised

Fri, 12/22/2017 - 05:36

A server being compromised or hacked for the purpose of this guide is an unauthorized person or bot logging into the server in order to use it for their own, usually negative ends.

Disclaimer: If your server has been compromised by a state organization like the NSA or a serious criminal group then you will not notice any problems and the following techniques will not register their presence.

However, the majority of compromised servers are carried out by bots i.e. automated attack programs, in-experienced attackers e.g. “script kiddies”, or dumb criminals.
