WireGuard, YAW-Hooks

Meeting Date

Colin Knapp will demonstrate how he installs the fast, small, and modern VPN WireGuard on his devices.

Mikalai Birukou will tell us about his YAW-Hooks project, which creates transient credentials for use in scripts. He writes:

There are times when you want a process on one machine to do something on another.


The simplest and POLA (Principle of Least Authority) compliant approach would be to define a script/command, give it a url that may even lock arguments (POLA) passed to script/command, and generate credentials applicable only this url (POLA). Use creds to do precise curl-ing.
