            hardware based password manager integration with device
            Asked 2021-Apr-28 at 12:48

            I am aiming to build a hardware based password manager that will store credentials like -username and passwords- externally, right now I am searching about it but I am having trouble in identifying that how will that external device integrate with browsers and websites when connected to provide the credentials stored in it. I mean what technique is used to integrate the hardware password managers to the device or browser.

            I would appreciate any sort of help and guidance from your side, Thanks!



            Answered 2021-Apr-28 at 12:48

            Usually they inject passwords using a HID device acting as a keyboard. Check out the OnlyKey as an example.

            The way these work is by injecting/typing username and password based on pressing a hardware button against which you have stored the relevant credentials. There is also the option to complete MFA by storing an OTP token. Some will act like any other password manager by parsing the website URL against what is stored, but I guess this opens an attack surface when feeding data back to the device.

            What does "assumptions" refer to when writing a pentest report?
            Asked 2021-Apr-16 at 15:25

            I have to write the "assumptions" part of a pentest report and I am having trouble understanding what I should write. I checked multiple pentest reports (from but none of them had this paragraph.
            Also I found this explanation "In case there are some assumptions that the pen-tester considers before or during the test, the assumptions need to be clearly shown in the report. Providing the assumption will help the report audiences to understand why penetration testing followed a specific direction.", but still what I do have in mind it is more suited for "attack narative".
            Can you provide me a small example (for one action, situation) so I can see exactly how it should be written?



            Answered 2021-Apr-16 at 15:25

            I would think the "assumptions" paragraph and the "Attack narrative" paragraph are somehow overlapping. I would use the "Assumptions" paragraph to state a couple of high level decisions made before starting the attack, with whatever little information the pentester would have on the attack. I would expand on the tools and techniques used in the "Attack narrative" paragraph

            For example an assumption could be: "The pentester is carrying on the exercise against the infrastructure of a soho company with less than 5 people It is common for soho companies to use consumer networking equipment that is usually unsecure, and left configured as defualt. For this reason the attacker focused on scanning for http and ssh using a database of vendors default username and passwords"



            Is there a way to use a particular C function/symbol as output by nm
            Asked 2021-Mar-10 at 23:13

            I'm trying to analyse a compiled file for cybersec learning purposes and want to use a particular function.

            Here is the output of nm --defined-only ./compiled_file:



            Answered 2021-Mar-09 at 12:54

            Yes, it is possible. The point of having exported symbols in shared libraries is to be able to use them - after all. In C, you can do this either by linking the library to the application (not really an option for python), or runtime loading the library and finding the required symbol (on linux: dlopen, dlsym). The manpage example shows how to do this in C.



            How to allow XML, JSON and CSV files to be uploaded when CSP is set in the webpage
            Asked 2020-Nov-04 at 19:09

            Currently, I have set the following CSP header in the HTML file of my webpage -



            Answered 2020-Nov-04 at 19:09

            The issue was caused and fixed as follows -

            The button that takes XML file as input in the HTML form has an inline event handler, which the CSP Policy was blocking, thereby blocking the upload. I moved this inline event handler to an external function and called the function. This fixed the issue and CSP is no longer blocking the function.
