I used to have an OpenVPN network to connect to machines I could not/did not want to expose to internet, each new computer I wanted to connect was a matter of generating new RSA keys/certs, it was efficient and usable but a bit tedious to configure at times (the documentation is pretty well built so I found the answers to all my questions pretty often). I discovered wireguard and decided to give it a try. This post is mostly to store the commands and configuration I used to get it working in a kubernetes environment.Read more →

Cette année, nous [Amré, Jean, Mathieu, Thibault] nous sommes rendus à la Nuit du Hack, et avons tenté le challenge “Black Badge”.

Having a room filled with computers able to boot over PXE, either a classroom or a LAN Party during sleeptime, or having a computer bios locked but with PXE before the hard drive, gave me the desire to design a computer to quickly boot on a system and perform all kind of operations I needed.
So came the idea of setting up a server to boot on an already installed OS, and this OS to be a Archlinux easily updateable (so not a liveCD).
This could be useful in order to boot quickly a cluster, automate tasks (retrieve the SAM/shadow file of a computer, install an OS, …) and/or for trolling.Read more →

A week ago, I took part of the sCTF.io 2016 Q1 with a friend. This is the first time I take seriously part to a CTF. We managed to score 1700 points and ranked 7th of about 700 teams (Funpetitor for us as we do not live in US).
Here are a few notes about problems we solved and found interesting.Read more →
