Using Burp Suite as an Invisible Proxy Tunneled Over SSH

I recently had to test a REST API with Burp Suite with a couple of unusual conditions. The first was I had a thick client to talk to the API that had no understanding of proxies. I could use curl to do the same thing but the client was still something I wanted to test. The second was the only access I had to target server was via SSH to a gateway system to get into the network the target was on. I knew I could tunnel Burp over SSH and I knew I could set up Burp as an invisible proxy. There are how tos out there about doing either thing separately but I didn’t find anything about doing them together. It took some trial and error with varying levels of success until I managed land at this solution that gave me the best results.

Relaxing Afternoon at West Point

I am onsite with a customer in New Jersey for a couple of weeks and they are are too close to West Point to not visit over the weekend.

No way my old T5i would have handled this well.

Shooting a full moon last night

I’ve never been happy with my shots of a full moon. I’ve gotten good results with non-full moons but nothing I’ve liked with a full moon. Last night I decided to try to follow Tony Northrup’s instructions to see what I got.

I was shooting my Canon M6 on manual. ISO 100, 1/60 second f/8.0 with a Tokina 400mm lens, tripod mounted shutter fired by remote. Manual focus.

I stacked seven images using Registax and Tony’s wavelet presets. My first attempt at stacking the results didn’t come out like I wanted. Continue reading “Shooting a full moon last night”
