Shameless self-promotion: Ops tools for hackers

tutorial

(Full Snack Developer) #1

Hello fellow 0x00sec-ers!

I just had a good talk with @pry0cc about doing some posts within my specialty, operations. I firmly believe that a strong foundation in operations is essential for any aspiring hacker, as you need to understand the systems you’re breaking. To that end, I will be cross-posting articles I write on my own blog here with a special focus on using ops tools for evil.

This first article (in what might be a series) is less evil, still fun. I used our very own pet chatbot, MissMoneyPenney, to demonstrate two really cool tools, Consul and consul-template. Check it out, let me know your thoughts, and tell me how you might want to use something like Consul and consul-template for bad things.
