A little over a year ago I signed up for this Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP) course. But you may have noticed I have not posted my review or my certificate.Read More
I think it is now time to start this course from eLearnSecurity. The Penetration Testing Professional (PTP) is a well know course which I have been putting off but have now decided to start.
I will add to this post as I progress through the course. I believe that it will not be too difficult, last year I took the Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP) training. But I did not do the exam as I still lack skills in privilege escalation.Read More
So for the last few months I have in my spare time bean trying to find a way to run a PIR sensor on a battery.
I remember reading a news article a few months ago where Amazon, Google and Apple agreed to find a working standard for IOT devices. Lets face it currently you buy a Philips Hue bulb so you have to by the Philips hue hub same for IKEA, google or if you are really not to caring a Chinese hub.Read More
So in the last attempt to create a low powered PIR sensor I failed due to the power requirements that the D1 mini needed. previous
My 18650 battery started at 4.2V the D1 mini needed 5v same with the PIR sensor, as the battery was depleted the voltage was also decreased, so the whole project was a little unreliable.Read More
The aim of this module is to help you become a computational thinker. Formulating a problem for efficient solution by computers is an extremely important skill. In this module, you will hone this skill: exploring a range of computing concepts; applying these to a variety of problems; and, in the process, becoming familiar with the popular Python programming language. This is the module for you if you are specialising in computing or if – whatever your field – you need to understand both the power and the limitations of computing. Though the focus is on the underlying ideas, you will also need to work with some mathematical concepts and notation.Read More
Well this is fun. The course material is good but expects you to also have a good attitude. There are some hints, but not these are not enough to root machines alone.Read More
Using a D1 mini to go to deep sleep and wake up when motion is detected. On boot a message is sent via MQTT to node-red.Read More
I have decided not to fully review this course. It was an introduction into the world of penetration testing and it was a fun and enjoyable intro . The only problem I had this was that I managed to complete it over 1 weekend.Read More
The World Wide Web continues to provide a foundation for the development of a broad range of increasingly influential and strategic technologies, supporting a large variety of applications and services, both in the private and public sectors. There is a growing need for management and decision makers to gain a clearer understanding of the application development process, from planning through to deployment and maintenance. This module will give you an insight into architectures, protocols, standards, languages, tools and techniques; an understanding of approaches to more dynamic and mobile content; and demonstrate how you can analyse requirements, plan, design, implement and test a range of web applications.
Recently I have not had that much time to work on my project but over the last few months, I have managed to complete my dashboard with semi-functionality. This includes the control over Lights, Heating and Blinds.
