  • HAProxy

    ssshake Home Network / Dev Env


    I use HAproxy primarily for application routing and SSL termination. I also use its logs and statistics to visualize incoming traffic in Kibana.

  • GitHub

    ssshake Home Network / Dev Env


    I use github for projects that I've open-sourced and are for public consumption. I also use this for other's projects I've forked.

  • Box

    ssshake Home Network / Dev Env


    I use box as an broker between my phone's data storage and my home networks backup storage. Box allowed me to automated backup of photos and videos to their cloud storage and in turn, schedule syncs of this data from Box to local network storage. This is a decent solution for me as it essentially offers on-premises backup in case I lose my phone and it also offers off-site back up inherently in case of local data loss, fire, etc.

  • Docker

    ssshake Home Network / Dev Env


    Currently experimenting. The idea is to isolate any services where I'm not confident yet in their security/quality. The hope is that if there is an exploit in a given service that an attacker won't be able break out of the docker container and cause damage to my systems.

    An example of a service I would isolate in a docker container would be a minecraft browser map application I use. I don't know who wrote it, I don't know who's vetting it, I don't know the source code. I would feel a lot better putting this in a container before I expose it to the internet.

    I believe I will follow this process for anything that's not properly maintained (not in an trusted apt-repo or some other sort of confidence)

  • Elasticsearch

    ssshake Home Network / Dev Env

  • OpenCV

    ssshake Home Network / Dev Env


    I use openCV to serve as "motion capture" logic for my home security cameras. Which means that instead of capturing in a dumb way based on motion, it captures video when it recognizes human faces or bodies. This saves a lot of disk, but at the expense of CPU.
