Well friends…this is likely the last post I’ll write on this account. It’s been fun but I’m going to be moving on to Crypto related stuff (smart contracts, NFTs, Blender3D, etc) and leave the cloud security & automation posts here on this account. …


Happy New Year!

So, I’ve been thinking lately about ways to add coding challenges to an interview process. They, of course, would be set up in an isolated account (AWS)/project(GCP)/subscription (AZURE). They would have environment variables that could change the answer.

For this example, I’ll be using an unauthenticated GCP…


I thought I’d put a post together after being inspired by this Cloud Village talk. I recommend giving it a watch. I’m just adding some additional info.

So for many years and still now, a lot of companies still use initialize a bastion. Bastions are servers with the primary purpose…


So I’m starting to pick up on this pattern that if I don’t do enough Terraform/CloudSec automation/Python/Go at work, I’ll end up doing it over the weekend. And if I’m getting my “fix”, I guess, I stop posting article for long periods of time….is this that thing they call balance…


Just a small journey on how I discovered and started printing Ear Savers

Hey Reader! I hope you’re doing well during quarantine. With all the content on the internet, I really appreciate that you’re right here, reading my thoughts.

If you haven’t heard of them, Ear Savers are these little devices that remove the tension of the elastic bands of surgery mask off…


A few months ago, I wanted to set up a CI/CD pipeline and started with a Jenkins server. Right away, I was not a fan of the GUI and it didn’t seem like fun learning so I looked for an alternative and found the community around Cloud Build.

…and I’m not just talking about run a scheduled scan with credentials already set. I’m talking about deploying a virtual scanner appliance into a subnetwork of a project in GCP (provided that you have the correct Organizational level role to do so), performing an ad-hoc scan against hosts (complete with…


I may be a tad late to this challenge but that may be because I had to learn a bit of Golang first. I’ve never really used it before but after a couple of weeks, honestly, it’s starting to grow on me. If you are looking to get started with…


Hey all, it’s been a while since I posted but I’m back! I’ll be posting a lot more Google Cloud stuff as I’m learning it.

The Terraform scripts for this are on my Github. This will provision a compute engine, set up a couple of firewall rules, and configure the…


I was originally making this tutorial using DynamoDB, API Gateway and Lambda but I decided that I needed more practice with Google Cloud Platform.

Setup

The acronyms I’m using for this tutorial are from here.

You’ll need to log into the Google Cloud Platform and create a new project if you…
