Rant from The Past & the Present Updates – 2019




2019 ..

Alright, back to the desk again from the past.

I had been busy a quite sometime now & had to make various research available for references. I had pulled up https://pwntoken.github.io for this very reason & however it now seems tremendous efforts to maintain the platform (Octopress) as most of the developers have left support.

Having pointed that out – I’ve decided to migrate all my research posts along with trying to fix the images where required to wordpress platform & continue maintaining this space. It’s been a jerky ride & all the posts from the past had been recorded solely for own tracking & references – however this could be useful to rest of the content assessors.

It’s 2019! A whole-lot has been at desk to record & put across the table. The blog shall no more contain any references to personal academic records – However I plan to record security research content along with migration which should be possible after alot of efforts invested with fixing missing images, hyperlinks, etc.  Year 2019 & prior where I left over had seen more of security landscape changes, shift-left approaches & a ton of interesting security techniques to cover including & not limited to:

  1. Agile Based Application Security
  2. IoT Security being pushed to the Edge
  3. Salesforce Penetration Testing
  4. Sharepoint Security Testing
  5. IPTV Security Assessments
  6. New Security Attack vectors

Since, security in itself has a wide coverage & has various inter-related domains – I shall be able to retain Application Security content as of present while I work on the rest & phase them out for releases.

Other transforms:
  1. A new visibility – I intend to make the blog easier for reference purposes with few glitches to be fixed.
  2. Optimized experience for commentators & response time to questions-asked.
  3. Probably I shall also try including polls to certain posts which requires opinions.
  4. Active blogging on security research content & day-to-day (or weekly) on new learning front.

I look forward to yet continue with the content as I intend to track all my records & that should entirely be point of the blog.
