Welcome to the first monthly edition of my “What I’m reading” series. Click here to read other posts in this series.
I’ve been compiling this list throughout January, and the following links appear in the chronological order of when I read them. Unlike my “Year in review” post, I’ll be posting links to what I read this month, not to things that were published this month.
Without further ado, here’s my reading list for Jan 2018.
- Bug Bounty Guide: Tips for Bug Hunters and Product Owners alike on how to hunt for bugs, and how to operate a bug bounty system.
- Everything you need to know about HTTP security headers: A run down on the different HTTP security headers you can use, what they do, and instructions on how to set them in a number of frameworks/servers
- Accessibility Checklist: A look at making sure your web-pages are designed in a way to allow those with accessibility needs can easily navigate your site.
- Android UI Automation: This series by the Slack Engineering team is an interesting look into how they get their UI testing done, and why they feel it’s valuable.
- Outsmarting Icognito Detection: Sites are trying to force you to not use incognito, so they can track you. This post looks at one way of how to get around that.
- xkcd: Meltdown and Spectre: One of the shortest and easiest to understand summaries of the whole Meltdown/Spectre incident.
- Setting up a DNS Firewall on Steroids: Something I want to do in the future.
Hopefully you find one, or all of these a good, worthwhile read.
