How to Host a Hidden Service .onion Site on the Dark Web

Warning: the recommendations made here are in reference to hosting your own personal content, not to become a web hosting provider on the dark web. You are responsible for the content that you host (maybe depending on region — I’m not a lawyer), but you don’t want to find yourself anywhere in the distribution pipeline related to the nefarious goods and services of others.

This guide is tuned toward hosting on Amazon Web Services (AWS) on Ubuntu 18.04. The same things can be achieved using RPM-based distros by substituting the packaging commands and tweaking the instructions as necessary.

How to SSH to a Jailbroken iOS Device over USB

I recently had to set up testing against our Akamai Staging environment which uses a different IP address than production. This required me to get a new MacBookPro that would support the latest version of MacOS, as well as the latest version of Xcode, just so that I could have sudo access to change add an entry in /etc/hosts in order to build the application from source and run it in the iOS simulator (since the Simulator doesn’t come packaged with the iOS AppStore).

Generating Large Password Dictionaries Using Brutalist

It is a highly-specialized tool, which should be a regular go-to in the tool belt of all red teamers and pentesters.

Enabling Full Disk Encryption on Legacy MBR BIOS with LVM on LUKS and GRUB Bootloader

This was obviously somewhat of an edge case, but I’m sure it will apply to many other users out there, and I hope it finds them well. This was one particular case where the Arch Wiki was a little shady and left me figuring out a lot of stuff on my own — as is the case for any Arch user — which is one of the reasons we punish ourselves by using it in the first place. That being said, this method should work with minimal tweaks for just about any OS, because the main things being modified here are the underlying disk formats, partitions, kernel, and bootloader. Everything else is left untouched.
