A very productive week: BoKS, Puppet and security

2016-04-17 00:28:00

I have had a wonderfully productive week! Next to my daily gig at $CLIENT, I have rebuilt my burner laptop with Kali 2016 (after the recent CTF event) and I have put eight hours into the BoKS Puppet module I'm building for Fox Technologies.  

The latter has been a great learning experience, building on the training that Ger Apeldoorn gave me last year. I've had a few successes this week, by migrating the module to Hiera and by resolving a concurrency issue I was having.

With regards to running Kali 2016 on the Lenovo s21e? I've learned that the ISO for Kali 2016 does not include the old installer application in the live environment. Thus it was impossible to boot from a USB live environment to install Kali on /dev/mmcblk1pX. Instead, I opted to reinstall Kali 2, after which I performed an "apt-get dist-upgrade" to upgrade to Kali 2016. Worked very well once I put that puzzle together.
