Ah, so it's NOT a /tech/ contributed list huh? Then there's very much little to no reason to keep the link up on the sticky. Just don't pretend that it's the collected input of end/tech/ contributions anymore. Endwall guy would have much to say otherwise, keeping up a list that wasn't updated for at least six months, but that's more /os/ territory now.

Notice the gradual change of who's contributing and also notice how that Tor thing was criticized since day one. These days, that anon is only spamming his own list that he had somehow convinced the Endwall guy, AKA Board Owner of /os/ to host, and people here really don't feel compelled to contribute to that list anymore. More could be said as to who that anon is but that's unnecessary for the time being. As much as it was a /tech/ thing, now it's mostly just a website for a certain someone to promote his list as if it is /tech/ approved which it is not.

Cybrary is actually pretty good when it comes to networking. Many of the courses just teach you what networking is and then adds a bit of focus on security at the end.

There are not enough women in cyber - That's not OK! We need to know why, and we need to fix it. Cybrary is tackling this issue head on to find a solution to this deteriorating problem. As such, I would like to request no more than 10-minutes of your time to respond to this very important survey. I personally assure everyone that all responses are confidential and anonymous!

Thank you for helping Cybrary raise awareness, and feel free to invite other women to participate in our study, share #cybergendergap.

There is a lot of resources everywhere about hacking, but a lot of them are either old, or simply bad quality.

What would you advice to read? There is "Hacking: the art of exploitation", but I don't know, it seems too vague. I really would like something more network oriented.

Is it work to go through the phrack zines?

No, it used to be a thread in >>>/POLAK/ but then some goddamn /intl/ gay nigger goon spammer(s) came along and took over that board and deleted all the content of the salt and blockchain files, of which after he was kicked out, much of them simply vanished, a couple fled to voat only to realize how much of a shithole it is, gave up, and a couple supposedly visited by spooks. The current Board Owner of /POLAK/ isn't the previous Board Owners of /POLAK/.

The whole point was to uncover the real untampered password behind Assange's encrypted files somehow through using the right blockchain data because of a supposed deadman switch that might had been dropped around the time rumors of black operations happened in the Ecuadorian embassy I think around October 2016 if I recall correctly. After that event, Wikileaks™ and Assange™ denied it happened yet Assange didn't show himself outside the window like he usually does while all of the original Wikileaks staff were pretty much gone if you knew even a tiny shred of their history. The John Pilger interview after that event was using some software capable of real time face capture and reenactment as well as audio signature, a clean shaven version of a man in his prior public appeearance had a beard. For a very long time there was a fake Julian Assange actor in his place and was the face of Julian's newer Twitter account. The interview after that one with Sean Hannity however, looked like the real deal guy which some speculate why the real Assange came back under what circumstances because something wasn't right.

None of that matters in the long run, Wikileaks have been and will continue to be co-opted by certain people of unknown power over this world and we will never ever fully realize what happened, a real spooky story which no matter how you look at it, nothing really changes in the end as the US government is still wholly corrupt and unable to jail the prime suspects of various criminal acts behind the 2016 election which is tied to various other undeniable public proof for conspiracy. Pick your own headcanon, none of it matters in the end. You could assume that white hat hackers somehow convinced their masters to leak certain information through Wikileaks™ and Assange™, or you could assume the very (((worse))). There was another deadman switch code released after but nobody gave a shit at that time since the consensus now is that some important people knows the key behind the encrypted code to decrypt should Wikileaks altogether gets shut down before their gathered documents get released. There's of course some ties with pizzagate and general Trump stuff but that's all political in its nature which is not /tech/ related. I still do think that the following image doesn't look like the real Assange but I can sure be totally wrong about that.

>formally verified VPN software

>Y-y-yes it is!
No, it's not. It is experimental software that is based on a formally verified protocol. Protip: TLS is also a formally verified protocol.

In addition:
>WireGuard is not yet complete. You should not rely on this code. It has not undergone proper degrees of security auditing and the protocol is still subject to change. We're working toward a stable 1.0 release, but that time has not yet come. There are experimental snapshots tagged with "0.0.YYYYMMDD", but these should not be considered real releases and they may contain security vulnerabilities (which would not be eligible for CVEs, since this is pre-release snapshot software).

>>12746
>I want muh post quantum algo kernelspace VPN too!
WireGuard is not post-quantum secure by default, and in order to be configured to be, it depends on a pre-shared symmetric key that has to be exchanged out of band. At this point, that means hand-delivering the key.

Anyway, this is another serious blunder from Intel, after all the exploits that came out from their corner cutting for speed.

>We confirmed that Intel was using a water chiller in the 5 GHz demo, a Hailea HC-1000B, which is a 1 HP water chiller good for 1500-4000 liters per hour and uses the R124 refrigerant to reduce the temperature of the water to 4 degrees Celsius. Technically this unit has a cooling power of 1770W, which correlates to the fact that a Corsair AX1600i power unit was being used for the system.

http://archive.today/2018.06.07-022714/https://www.tomshardware.com/news/intel-28-core-processor-5ghz-motherboard,37213.html

>Intel's demo didn't tell the full story. Many in the press mistakenly assumed the new processor runs at 5.0 GHz at stock settings, but we carefully analyzed video from the event and spotted a few obvious signs that the processor was overclocked. Intel was apparently running some sort of closed-loop cooling that required insulating material around the tubing. This turns out to be a water chiller hidden under the table. As expected, all of the components are properly shielded to avoid excess condensation from the chilled liquid.

>The one-horsepower Hailea HC-1000B is a beefy water chiller that can dissipate tremendous amounts of waste heat, but it also requires more than 1,000W for operation. We were originally going to witness the demo first hand, but there wasn't enough power handy to run both the chiller and the system simultaneously

Why is intel not prepared?
They must have a huge R&D advance, from all of this years without any real advance an breakthrough, against an AMD which was nearly none existence.
This demo seems like they took a random card on their desk, plugged some cooling and tapped this together.

That's weird. Maybe intel is in a bad shape, even though that's hard to believe with the money they're making for so much long time. I would like to read more about this.

Intel have been too busy losing their server market due to all the vulnerabilities in their chips because they cut corners to beat AMD in speed. I think Intel has been struggling to keep ahead of AMD for a long while now. This should be a spectacular shit show as they fall down hard in the coming years. I personally can't wait to see what new levels of low they can attain after this.

EndChan/InfinityNow Terminal Client Morphosis 06/03/2018 (Sun) 21:18:45 [Preview] No. 12749 [Reply] [Last 50 Posts]
How hard would it be to create a terminal client for endchan/InfinityNow? I know that the OverChan android app can view this site; does that work by scraping or is there an API?

It would be much more comfy to browse here from the terminal than through the browser. You could have proper keyboard navigation between posts, and you wouldn't need a mouse at all. The biggest issue that comes to mind would be solving the captcha for making posts.

It's a better browsing experience. You don't need to bloat the program with "web features" that are never going to be used. Me browsing only this page uses 400MB of RAM due to the fact that I have to open Firefox. You also get dedicated controls (as mentioned above).

As for the actual viewing of images, most terminals have support for rendering images (ranger, for example, has thumbnail support for images), and if they don't it's not too hard to make a script to open sxiv or something to view them.

CPU, RAM, GPU: 1x single board computer

A Single Board Computer provides every component needed to build laptop, except for battery, display, keyboard and case, each of which can be added separately.

Single Board Computers provide CPU, RAM, GPU, motherboard and some other integrated features on a single board. They are full desktop computer system that is sufficiently small and low power consuming to be used as a mobile, DIY laptop. They are also very low cost (<$50).

The most important feature of Single Board Computers is that there are models that are fully open source. It is possible to build a fully functional laptop with Free Software only, including free firmware, wireless and 3D video acceleration drivers. It is even possible to get SBCs with open source hardware designs.

For reference:

Single Board Computers with free 3D video acceleration (Etnaviv)
Nitrogen6X ($225): Quad core ARM A9 @ 1 Ghz, Freescale i.MX6, Vivante GC2000, 2 GB DDR3, best option, compatible with mainline kernels
Nitrogen6_MAX ($299): Quad core ARM A9 @ 1 Ghz, Freescale i.MX6, Vivante GC3000, 4 GB DDR3, faster Nitrogen6X
Wandboard QuadPLUS ($139): Quad core ARM A9 @ 1 Ghz, Freescale i.MX6, Vivante GC3000, 2 GB DDR3, cheaper version of Nitrogen6_MAX, not mainline

Charger

The DIY Modular Open Source Laptop is designed to be charged by any combination of solar panel, handcrank generator, USB AC adapter, USB car charger, USB port or thermoelectric generator. Unlike most rechargeable electronics, each charger can charge the USB powerbank battery of the DIY laptop seperately from the DIY laptop. This flexible and modular charging ensures the DIY laptop never runs out of energy, yet never needs to be charged either.

For reference
USB solar charger: SOKOO 22W 5V 2-Port USB Portable Foldable Solar Charger ($55)
Handcrank generator: K-TOR Pocket Socket Hand Crank Generator Portable Power Supply 10 Watts 120 Volts ($60)
Pedal generator: K-tor Power Box 20 Watt Pedal Generator ($200)
Thermoelectric generator: Camping Stove Thermoelectric Generator TEG Power - Devil Watt 15 Watt ($304)

Each reference charger can provide the 5V 2A needed to charge a USB powerbank at full speed. The most convenient charger will depend on the situation.

Solar panels can provide >150 W unattended outdoors at daytime.
Handcrank or pedal generators can provide <150 W attended indoors or outdoors, day or night. Handcrank generators can be used while standing or moving, but pedal generators can be used while also using the DIY laptop.
Thermoelectric generators can provide >150 W unattended outdoors, day or night. Indoors with ventilation.
USB AC adapters can be used wherever there is AC electric grid.
USB car adapters can be used with most DC electricity sources such as 12 V car batteries or six 1.5 V AA batteries in series. USB car adapters can also convert DC from solar panels, thermoelectric generators, handcrank generators, DC wind or hydroelectric turbines into 5V DC for charging the DIY laptop.

Very nice. Really.
I think this could be minimized in size, though, using trackpoint ('clit') instead of touchpad and squeezing the components inside. The wood color would also call too much attention while using it in public, so a matte black painting would be nice.
I don't know if you're the creator, but this is pretty cool.

About the keyboard, I had this idea some time ago of using a foldable keyboard from Blackberry, like this one:
https://www.amazon.com/Stowaway-Ultra-Slim-Bluetooth-Blackberry-Handhelds/dp/B0002OKCXE

So, all the components would be together with the display, like a mobile 'tablet', and this foldable keyboard could be unfolded just when you start using the computer and would serve as the 'base' for the display. This could make it less havier and also would be smaller i size.

Never finished that project, but I still think it's a good idea (although I'm thinking about head-mounted displays with hand-adapted keyboard now, instead of conventional laptop format).
