FindSubDomains.com — subdomains search service
Finding subdomains is mostly used in penetrations test because they point to different applications and revealing external network ranges used by the target company. Having unsecured subdomain can lead to serious risk to your business and lately, there were a number of security incidents where the IT security expert used subdomains tricks. Also subdomains provide you an ability to analyze internal company structure, business targets and priorities.

GoAccess - Visual Web Log Analyzer
GoAccess was designed to be a fast, terminal-based log analyzer. Its core idea is to quickly analyze and view web server statistics in real time without needing to use your browser (great if you want to do a quick analysis of your access log via SSH, or if you simply love working in the terminal).

While the terminal output is the default output, it has the capability to generate a complete real-time HTML report (great for analytics, monitoring and data visualization), as well as a JSON, and CSV report.

COPS : Calibre OPDS (and HTML) PHP Server
In my opinion Calibre is a marvelous tool but is too big and has too much dependencies to be used only for its content server.

That's the main reason why I coded this OPDS / HTML content server. I needed a simple tool to be installed on a small server (Seagate Dockstar in my case).

I initially thought of Calibre2OPDS but as it generate static file no search was possible.

So COPS's main advantages are :

No need for many dependencies.
No need for a lot of CPU or RAM.
Not much code.
Search is available.
With Dropbox / Owncloud it's very easy to have an up to date OPDS content server.
100% OPDS valid code (checked with http://opds-validator.appspot.com/).
It was fun to code.

Siege Home Page
Siege is an http load testing and benchmarking utility. It was designed to let web developers measure their code under duress, to see how it will stand up to load on the internet. Siege supports basic authentication, cookies, HTTP and HTTPS protocols. It lets its user hit a web server with a configurable number of simulated web browsers. Those browsers place the server “under siege.”

To set up a secure server using public-key cryptography, in most cases, you send your certificate request (including your public key), proof of your company's identity, and payment to a CA. The CA verifies the certificate request and your identity, and then sends back a certificate for your secure server. Alternatively, you can create your own self-signed certificate.

Living with HTTPS
In order to stop SSL stripping, we need to make HTTPS the only protocol. We can't do that for the whole Internet, but we can do it site-by-site with HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS).

HSTS tells browsers to always make requests over HTTPS to HSTS sites. Sites become HSTS either by being built into the browser, or by advertising a header:

Strict-Transport-Security: max-age=8640000; includeSubDomains

The header is in force for the given number of seconds and may also apply to all subdomains. The header must be received over a clean HTTPS connection.

Once the browser knows that a site is HTTPS only, the user typing mail.google.com is safe: the initial request uses HTTPS and there's no hole for an attacker to exploit.

Wbox HTTP testing tool
Wbox aims to help you having fun while testing HTTP related stuff. You can use it to perform many tasks, including the following.

Benchmarking how much time it takes to generate content for your web application.
Web server and web application stressing.
Testing virtual domains configuration without the need to alter your local resolver.
Check if your redirects are working correctly emitting the right HTTP code.
Test if the HTTP compression is working and if it is actually serving pages faster.
Use it as a configuration-less HTTP server to share files! (see the server mode documentation at the end of the Wbox tutorial in this page, but it's as simple as % wbox servermode webroot /tmp)

Wbox is free software under the BSD license and was written in ANSI C (POSIX runtime required) by Salvatore 'antirez' Sanfilippo.

Huge Collection of Code Snippets: HTAccess, PHP, WordPress, jQuery, HTML, CSS
Please excuse this self-serving, miscellaneous post, but I’ve just got to purge all of these code snippets and scraps collected over the years. Whenever I update this site, I place any removed/unused code snippets into a giant note file for future reference, just in case. There’s all sorts of different types of code and snippets that just keep growing and growing and.. and finally it gets to a point where I just need to dump everything and start fresh. That is the purpose of this post.

So rather than delete some of these gems, I thought it would be useful to post them here at Perishable Press and share with anyone who finds them useful. But be warned, these code snippets and scraps are provided wholesale, with little or no explanation, and should be used only if you truly know what you are doing. And so with that said, here is approximately five years’ worth of miscellaneous snippets, scripts, and hacks. Enjoy!

loads.in gives you the possibility to see how fast your (or any) website loads in a real browser from over 50 locations worldwide.

If you have a worldwide audience, or your site is hosted in a different country from where your visitors live, it is useful to see how long it takes to load your web pages. With loads.in you simply enter the full URL of the page you want to check, and the page is retreived by a browser at a random location. For each subsequent check you can choose a specific location and browser profile.

As a result you will be presented with:

* The load time of the web page.
* Snapshots of the webpage at different times during load.
* Errors or warnings if they occur.
* A complete timing break down of all elements of your page in a waterfall chart.
* The possibility to download the timing results in the Http Archive (HAR) format.

loads.in is a unique and free tool:

* Checks your site with real browsers.
* Choose from Safari, Chrome, Internet Explorer or FireFox browser profiles.
* Checks your site from over 50 locations.
* Provides snapshots and waterfall charts for each check.

loads.in is powered by the WatchMouse performance monitoring service.

Yahoo! YSlow for Firebug
Yahoo! has released YSlow, their web performance tool, on YDN under an open source license. Steve Souders, Yahoo!'s Chief Performance Yahoo!, made the announcement during his session at OSCon.

YSlow measures web page performance based on the best practices evangelized by Yahoo!'s Exceptional Performance team. Since many of these best practices focus on the frontend, YSlow is integrated with Joe Hewitt's Firebug, the web development tool of choice for frontend developers.

YSlow has three main views: Performance, Stats, and Components. Performance view scores the page against each performance rule, generates an overall YSlow grade for the page, and lists specific recommendations for making the page faster. Stats view summarizes the total page weight, cookie size, and HTTP request count. Components view lists each component (image, stylesheet, script, Flash object, etc.) in the page along with HTTP information relevant to page load times. It also contains several tools including JSLint. Try it out!

Better Robots.txt Rules for WordPress
Running WordPress, you want search engines to crawl and index your posts and pages, but not your core WP files and directories. You also want to make sure that feeds and trackbacks aren’t included in the search results. It’s also good practice to declare a sitemap. Here is a good starting point for your next WP-based robots.txt:

User-agent: *

Disallow: /feed/
Disallow: /trackback/
Disallow: /wp-admin/
Disallow: /wp-content/
Disallow: /wp-includes/
Disallow: /xmlrpc.php
Disallow: /wp-

blosxom :: the zen of blogging ::
Blosxom (pronounced "blossom") is a lightweight yet feature-packed weblog application designed from the ground up with simplicity, usability, and interoperability in mind.

Simplicity: Blogging--and, indeed, any online publishing-- should be as simple as typing away in your favourite text editor and hitting Save. Fundamental is Blosxom's reliance upon the file system, folders and files as its content database. Entries are plain text files like any other.

Usability: Create, edit, rename, and delete entries on the command-line, via FTP, WebDAV, or anything else you might use to manipulate your files. There's no import or export; entries are nothing more complex than title on the first line, body being everything thereafter.

Interoperability: Despite its tiny footprint, Blosxom doesn't skimp on features, sporting the lion's share of features one would find in any other Weblog application or full-blown content management and publishing system. Blosxom's colophon.

Blosxom is simple, straightforward, minimalist Perl affording even the dabbler an opportunity for experimentation and customization.

And last, but not least, Blosxom is Open Source and free for the taking and altering.

This bash shell script searches in a directory you specify for any files containing a string and replaces that string with another string. It’s nice because it asks you if you would like to be prompted for each operation, or to run without user-input. I use this shell script to change static IP addresses or domains, file locations, database info, etc.

DeleGate is a multi-purpose application level gateway, or a proxy server which runs on multiple platforms (Unix, Windows, MacOS X and OS/2). DeleGate mediates communication of various protocols (HTTP, FTP, NNTP, SMTP, POP, IMAP, LDAP, Telnet, SOCKS, DNS, etc.), applying cache and conversion for mediated data, controlling access from clients and routing toward servers. It translates protocols between clients and servers, applying SSL(TLS) to arbitrary protocols, converting between IPv4 and IPv6, merging several servers into a single server view with aliasing and filtering. Born as a tiny proxy for Gopher in March 1994, it has steadily grown into a general purpose proxy server. Besides being a proxy, DeleGate can be used as a simple origin server for some protocols (HTTP, FTP and NNTP).

Nikto is an Open Source (GPL) web server scanner which performs comprehensive tests against web servers for multiple items, including over 6400 potentially dangerous files/CGIs, checks for outdated versions of over 1000 servers, and version specific problems on over 270 servers. It also checks for server configuration items such as the presence of multiple index files, HTTP server options, and will attempt to identify installed web servers and software. Scan items and plugins are frequently updated and can be automatically updated.

Nikto is not designed as an overly stealthy tool. It will test a web server in the quickest time possible, and is fairly obvious in log files. However, there is support for LibWhisker's anti-IDS methods in case you want to give it a try (or test your IDS system).
