KWLUG Meeting: Monday, August 10, 2020, 7pm

WireGuard, YAW-Hooks

Meeting Date

 

Update 3: Unfortunately Colin had a family emergency and was not able to present WireGuard. We will attempt to reschedule this topic.

Update: The URL for this month's meeting is https://webconference.kwlug.org/room/kwlug . The access code is 507191 . Update 2: we have disabled the access code.

 

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.
