Cloudflare 也能在各端點跑 JavaScript 了

類似於 AWS 先前推出的 Using CloudFront with Lambda@Edge (參考「在 CloudFront 的 edge 上跑 Lambda」以及「Lambda@Edge 的 GA」),Cloudflare 也推出了類似的功能:「Introducing Cloudflare Workers: Run Javascript Service Workers at the Edge」、「Code Everywhere: Why We Built Cloudflare Workers」。

整個系統是架構在 Chrome V8 上,尤其是安全性的部分是 Cloudflare 的人頗讚賞的重點:

Security: The V8 JavaScript engine is arguably the most scrutinized code sandbox in the history of computing, and the Chrome security team is one of the best in the world. Moreover, Google pays massive bug bounties to anyone who can find a vulnerability. (That said, we have added additional layers of our own sandboxing on top of V8.)

比較不一樣的地方在於 Cloudflare 拿 Service Worker API 來設計他們的架構,AWS 則是自己幹了一套出來...

然後現在還沒給出價錢,也還沒完全開放使用... 想要玩的人需要申請 beta。

Twitter 打算放寬到 280 字...

Twitter 打算放寬 140 字限制:「Giving you more characters to express yourself」。

不過不包括日文、中文與韓文 XD

We want every person around the world to easily express themselves on Twitter, so we're doing something new: we're going to try out a longer limit, 280 characters, in languages impacted by cramming (which is all except Japanese, Chinese, and Korean).




看到「imgproxy: Resize your images instantly and securely」這篇文章,介紹「DarthSim/imgproxy」這個專案,想起很久以前的同事在 PIXNET 弄的 *.pimg.tw 系列服務...

imgproxy 可以 resizing,也可以 croping,然後也支援 signature token 機制,感覺是每個大一點的站台都會自己刻一次的服務 XD

整個專案以 Golang 為主,效能應該是不錯... 不過一般前面還是會放 cache 機制 (像是 CDN 之類的服務),而不會把 loading 直接打進來,避免同樣的圖片一直重複計算。

Heimdall Data:自動 Cache RDBMS 資料增加效能

看到 AWS 的「Automating SQL Caching for Amazon ElastiCache and Amazon RDS」這篇裡面介紹了 Heimdall Data – SQL caching and performance optimization 這個產品。

從官網的介紹也可以看出來是另外疊一層 proxy,但自動幫你處理 cache invalidation 的問題:

But what makes Heimdall Data unique in industry is its auto-cache AND auto-invalidation capability. Our machine learning algorithms determine what queries to cache while invalidating to ensure maximum performance and data integrity.

看起來支援了四個蠻常見的 RDBMS:

Heimdall Data supports most all relational database (e.g. MySQL, Postgres, Amazon RDS, Oracle, SQL Server, MariaDB).

看起來是一個花錢直接買效能的方案... 不過 cache invalidation 的部分不知道要怎麼跨機器做,在 FAQ 沒看到 cluster 情況下會怎麼解決。

Apache 的 Optionsbleed

Apache 也出了類似 Heartbleed 的包:「Apache bug leaks contents of server memory for all to see—Patch now」,原文出自「Optionsbleed - HTTP OPTIONS method can leak Apache's server memory」。

這掛上 CVE-2017-9798 了,影響版本包括了:

This affects the Apache HTTP Server through 2.2.34 and 2.4.x through 2.4.27.

發生在對 OPTIONS 處理出問題:

Optionsbleed is a use after free error in Apache HTTP that causes a corrupted Allow header to be constructed in response to HTTP OPTIONS requests. This can leak pieces of arbitrary memory from the server process that may contain secrets. The memory pieces change after multiple requests, so for a vulnerable host an arbitrary number of memory chunks can be leaked.

就... 更新吧 @_@

用 BazQux 訂閱文章

也已經用 BazQux 一陣子了,算是比較滿意的 Web-based RSS reader,拿出來寫一下...

可以試用 30 天,付費會員的費用是 USD$19/year 或是 USD$29/year (功能沒有差異,只是多付一些錢支持網站維護者),或是一次性的 USD$149/lifetime。

網站放在德國而且沒有支援 HTTP/2,但速度比其他同性質的網站都快多了 (對我就是在說 Feedly),讓人想到當年 Google Reader 還活著的時候。

用起來比較不習慣的應該是單一 feed 未讀項目最多 500 筆,對於一些圖片類的東西會比較麻煩...

AWS CodeBuild 可以管 Secret 了...

AWS CodeBuild 可以管理 secret 了:「AWS CodeBuild Now Provides Ability To Manage Secrets」。

AWS CodeBuild now further enhances securing your build environment. CodeBuild can now store sensitive information as secrets, which can now get directly passed to your build jobs. This can be achieved by modifying the parameter store directly in your buildspec.yml, or via the CodeBuild console.


We strongly discourage using environment variables to store sensitive values, especially AWS access key IDs and secret access keys. Environment variables can be displayed in plain text using tools such as the AWS CodeBuild console and the AWS CLI. For sensitive values, we recommend you use the parameter-store mapping instead, as described later in this section.


不過在找資料的時候,發現 AWS CodeBuild 提供了每個月一百分鐘的 free quota,不論是新帳號還是現有帳號都一直有?(這點是之前沒注意到的...)

The AWS CodeBuild free tier includes 100 build minutes of build.general1.small per month. The CodeBuild free tier does not expire automatically at the end of your 12-month AWS Free Tier term. It is available to new and existing AWS customers.

GitHub 明年關閉 SSH 上 SHA1 相關的 Kx (Key Exchange) 演算法

GitHub 定下落日條款了:「Weak cryptographic standards deprecation update」。

這次目標是 diffie-hellman-group1-sha1diffie-hellman-group14-sha1,同時啟用了 diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha256

Since the announcement, we have been focusing on the impact of disabling the diffie-hellman-group1-sha1 and diffie-hellman-group14-sha1 key exchanges for SSH. As of last week, we have enabled diffie-hellman-group-exchange-sha256. This key exchange method is widely supported and will allow most legacy clients to seamlessly transition away from diffie-hellman-group1-sha1 and diffie-hellman-group14-sha1.

明年二月拔掉 diffie-hellman-group1-sha1diffie-hellman-group14-sha1

This is a very small percentage of traffic, but we would like to see if we can reduce the incompatible traffic percentage even further before disabling support for the older key exchange algorithms on February 1, 2018.

Google Chrome 將 .dev 設為 HSTS Preload 名單

其實是兩件事情... 第一件是 Google Chrome.dev 結尾的網域設為 HSTS Preload 名單:「Chrome to force .dev domains to HTTPS via preloaded HSTS」。

第二件事情是隨著第一件來的,HSTS Preload 必須由 domain 擁有人提出啊... 所以 .dev 是合法的 TLD (gTLD)?

文章作者給了答案,是的,而且就是 Google 擁有的:

Wait, there's a legit .dev gTLD?
Yes, unfortunately.



不過你可以用這招避開:「在 Google Chrome 連上因 HSTS 而無法連線的網站」,也就是輸入 badidea

另外測試了一下,應該是所有的 A record 都會指到,如果有人懶得設定的話也可以用這個位置啦...

Imgur 上 HTTPS

Imgur 宣佈 HTTPS 化:「HTTPS on Imgur」。

Today, we deployed HTTPS by default on Imgur. All traffic is now redirected to https:// and, as of now, HTTPS is the default on all Imgur URLs.

總算是上線了... 先前是靠 HTTPS Everywhere 做。
