Bundesfeiertag, discount, Swiss day -

A very important date is quickly coming up... The 1st of August is the Swiss National Day or Bundesfeiertag, where most cities hold local celebrations in honor of the founding of the confederation. National day celebrations in Gland, Vaud (Photo by Christian Bonzon) The core founding act of Switzerland is the signing of the Rütli pact ("Serment du Grütli" in French) in 1291 by the three initial cantons: Schwyz, Uri and Unterwald. Though no main "centralized" event is organized for the occasion, local celebrations are held at a municipal level. Below is an example of the official celebration given in Ringtail's hometown...

A beginner-friendly embedded development kit The ioNode is a tiny and versatile microcontroller board. What's a microcontroller you say? Quick answer: a small processor with some RAM, Flash storage and a few peripheral interfaces. The ioNode is the ultimate AVR development board from Dooba, hosting a powerful ATMEGA1284P. Program it with some code to manipulate the individual inputs/outputs and start interacting with other chips, boards and target systems. The ioNode is programmed via USB (cable included) but your code can also communicate with a host computer for configuration, logging or whatever you may need. A bunch of basic components including...

3D print, Basilisk, bypass, ethernet, lan, NAC, network -

It gives me immense joy to finally reveal what I've secretly been working on for the past months. I must admit it has been difficult to keep this to myself as I was progressing through the design and development of this new product. After many successful pentests using the Skunk gigabit switch as a way to bypass NAC (by spoofing the MAC address of a legitimate device and duplicating its traffic), I came to realize the value of this technique, which I started referring to as "ghosting". I started to understand I needed to design a device which would accomplish...

3D print, case, enclosure, ethernet, gigabit, network, Skunk -

Are you growing tired of the "classic" look of the Skunk's basic enclosure? Do you wish there was a funkier alternative? I wanted to experiment with other designs for this case. After some playing around, I came up with two alternatives which, at least to me, provide some nice change of outfit for the Skunk. Please note: only the standard green case is shipped with the Skunk for now. The cases presented here are simply experiments that I encourage anyone with a 3D printer to try out for themselves. The bottom part of the case has not actually changed -...
