Github Repo of Pcaps

I became a little tired manually downloading pcaps from the various, freely available resources on the net so I added a repo to my very basic github repo so that I could simply `git clone` from wherever I am - assuming decent bandwidth and Github don't get to pissed at storing pcaps - as it's only 1.1gb at present, I doubt they will (/me hoping :) ).

I'm not really sure what I plan to do with this repo, I guess I'll extend it and add more as I get around to it. My sole goal at the minute is to use the awesome functionality of Github to manage and modify the content, as well as making it easier for me to remember where the pcaps are ;-)

MongoDB Authori(s|z)ation

Introduction Having answered numerous questions on the new and old authori(s|z)ation within MongoDB, I thought I'd write a short blog post explaining how things work as there seems to be some confusion. What's New Prior to version 2.4 , there was a very basic sense of "Role Based Access Controls" (RBAC) within MongoDB as there were only two roles - read readWrite which is quite limited. For example, if the user has "readWrite", that user is essentially "root" and the user can add/remove users as well as inserting data into the database, i.e. there is no role segregation. Version 2.4 added in the following 3 core roles - userAdmin dbAdmin clusterAdmin with a notable extension such that there are now 4 roles that apply across all databases - readAnyDatabase readWriteAnyDatabase userAdminAnyDatabase dbAdminAnyDatabase This increased RBAC is a significant improvement from a security perspective in MongoDB. It is imp

Being a Support Engineer @ 10gen - Part 1

There's a mis-conception around the role of a "Support Engineer".  As a clue, it's not what Urban Dictionary   says   - A person whose job is to answer calls from customers of a small- to large-sized company...... They are teathered to a their desk all day via phone headset........ phone jockeys usually hate their jobs.......they are are paid well enough..........until they completely burn out, and hate everyone.   and doesn't always involve this - Image Source: http://half-bakedbaker.blogspot.ie/2009/11/cannoli-and-broken-computer.html As you can see  here , there's lots of open roles in  10gen  and more specifically with 10gen, in  Dublin . I thought I'd write this quick blog to explain what Support Engineers actually do and why I joined 10gen as a "Support Engineer". I could be wrong but didn't Google come up with term " Site Reliability Engineer " to do away with the stigma associated with being a

What's the point of (InfoSec) Certifications?

Quite recently, my GSE was up for renewal. I'm currently in the middle of transporting my family to another continent and I've slightly more responsibilities work-wise in 2016 versus 2012. However, given the effort and study that it took to get the cert the first time (and to a lesser degree the expense), I figured it was a no-brainer to renew. For me, I've always been a huge fan of the GSE and considered it the epitome of InfoSec certifications, much like the CCIE for (Cisco) networking. Personally, I learn better by "doing" and consider it as the evidence that someone knows their stuff so the "2-day lab" element in the GSE was a both a huge goal and challenge that I was excited about. I talked about the value of "doing" when trying to learn about yourself previously here with the infamous Security Ninja and here on my own blog so there's no point in repeating myself. When I did the GSE, I absolutely loved the hands-on lab mo
