Cloudflare 的 Workers KV

Cloudflare 推出了 Workers KV 服務:「Building With Workers KV, a Fast Distributed Key-Value Store」。

是個 key-value 結構服務 (全球性,eventually consistent,約 10 秒的同步時間),key 的限制是 2KB,value 是 64KB,一個 namespace 最多 10 億筆資料。

讀取可以到 100k+ read/s,但寫入是 1 write/s/key,可以看出來主要是為了讀取資料而設計的。

現有的 worker ($5/month) 會送一些量,包括 1GB 的空間與一千萬次的讀取:

Your $5 monthly Workers compute minimum includes 1 GB of KV storage and up to 10 million KV reads. If you use less than the 10 million included Worker requests now, you can use KV without paying a single cent more.

超過的部份另外再收:

Beyond the minimums, Workers KV is billed at $0.50 per GB-month of additional storage and $0.50 per million additional KV reads.

這樣好像整個 blog 的基本功能都可以直接在上面跑了... 而搜尋靠外部服務,圖片與影音也可以靠外部空間協助?

蘋果以隱私為由,下掉 Facebook 在 App Store 上的 Onavo App

Onavo 是個提供 VPN 服務的公司,跟一般的 VPN 服務一樣,以隱私為主打,後來在 2013 年被 Facebook 買下,但在今年三月的時候就有媒體有報導 Facebook 打算蒐集 Onavo 上的資料:「Facebook-owned Onavo quietly launches Bolt App Lock, a data-tracking app that locks other apps」,當時 Facebook 不怎麼鳥各家媒體的看法,就放著...

不過直到八月的時候才被 Apple 下架:「Apple removed Facebook’s Onavo from the App Store for gathering app data」,引用 Apple 發言人給 TechCrunch 的句子:

We work hard to protect user privacy and data security throughout the Apple ecosystem. With the latest update to our guidelines, we made it explicitly clear that apps should not collect information about which other apps are installed on a user’s device for the purposes of analytics or advertising/marketing and must make it clear what user data will be collected and how it will be used.

看起來是直接改遊戲規則後強迫下架...

沒有 Google 專屬套件的 Android

剛剛在「How to Android without Google」這邊的文章裡看到「How to Android without Google [easy way]」這篇指南,說明如何弄出一個沒有 Google 專屬套件的 Android 環境。

主要是 LineageOS 當作底層基礎 (作業系統),然後用 microG 提供 API 相容層,並且用 F-Droid 安裝 Open Source 軟體。

裡面有兩個方案以前沒看過,一個是 XPosedFramework,提供框架讓使用者有更強的控制力,更完整的說明可以參考「Xposed Framework + App Settings 為每個 App 設定不同的運行模式」這篇。

另外一個是 Yalp Store,當軟體只在 Google Play 平台上提供安裝的時候,就需要透過這個套件了 XD

TWCA 不在 Java Trust Store 裡...

SSL Labs 上翻資料的時候發現看到台灣有些網站的 SSL 憑證在 Java Trust Store 內是不會取得信任授權的,但其他的都支援,像是這樣:

翻了幾個後發現都是 TWCA 的,在其他家都是這樣授權出來的 (Mozilla/Apple/Android/Windows):(TWCA Root Certification Authority -> ) TWCA Global Root CA -> TWCA Secure SSL Certification Authority -> Final,也就是 TWCA 的兩個 Root CA 都在 trust store 內,走任何一條授權都可以拉出來。

印象中之前應該都是支援的... 先前是 cross sign 嗎?@_@

Amazon CloudWatch Logs 換 SSL Certificate 的 CA

收到標題是「Upcoming Changes to SSL Certificates in Amazon CloudWatch Logs」的信件,說明 Amazon CloudWatch Logs 要換 SSL Certificate 的 CA,看起來是要換成自家的:

We will be updating the certificate authority (CA) for the certificates used by Amazon CloudWatch Logs domain(s), between 8 January 2018 and 22 January 2018. After the updates complete, the SSL/TLS certificates used by Amazon CloudWatch Logs will be issued by Amazon Trust Services (ATS), the same certificate authority (CA) used by AWS Certificate Manager.

然後有提到 cross-sign 的部份,有透過 Starfield 的 Root CA 簽,所以只要下面有任何一個有在 Root CA store 裡面就應該會信任:

The update means that customers accessing AWS webpages via HTTPS (for example, the Amazon CloudWatch Console, customer portal, or homepage) or accessing Amazon CloudWatch Logs API endpoints, whether through browsers or programmatically, will need to update the trusted CA list on their client machines if they do not already support any of the following CAs:
- "Amazon Root CA 1"
- "Starfield Services Root Certificate Authority - G2"
- "Starfield Class 2 Certification Authority"

另外條列出有哪些 API endpoint 會改變:

This upgrade notice covers the following endpoints:
logs.ap-northeast-1.amazonaws.com
logs.ap-northeast-2.amazonaws.com
logs.ap-south-1.amazonaws.com
logs.ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com
logs.ap-southeast-2.amazonaws.com
logs.ca-central-1.amazonaws.com
logs.eu-central-1.amazonaws.com
logs.eu-west-1.amazonaws.com
logs.eu-west-2.amazonaws.com
logs.eu-west-3.amazonaws.com
logs.us-east-1.amazonaws.com
logs.us-east-2.amazonaws.com
logs.us-west-1.amazonaws.com
logs.us-west-2.amazonaws.com
logs.sa-east-1.amazonaws.com

然後也列出了有哪些系統「應該」會支援:

* Operating Systems With ATS Support
- Microsoft Windows versions that have January 2005 or later updates installed, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows Server 2008, and newer versions
- Mac OS X 10.4 with Java for Mac OS X 10.4 Release 5, Mac OS X 10.5 and newer versions
- Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 (March 2007), Linux 6, and Linux 7 and CentOS 5, CentOS 6, and CentOS 7
- Ubuntu 8.10
- Debian 5.0
- Amazon Linux (all versions)
- Java 1.4.2_12, Java 5 update 2, and all newer versions, including Java 6, Java 7, and Java 8

不過沒看到 Windows XP 耶,不知道是怎樣 XD

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.

在文件裡提到:

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.

這次算是補上其他家已經有蠻久的功能...

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.

用 Go 寫的 Badger

Dgraph 在推銷自家發展出來的 Badger:「Introducing Badger: A fast key-value store written natively in Go」。

標靶是 RocksDB,號稱比 RocksDB 快好幾倍:

Based on benchmarks, Badger is at least 3.5x faster than RocksDB when doing random reads. For value sizes between 128B to 16KB, data loading is 0.86x - 14x faster compared to RocksDB, with Badger gaining significant ground as value size increases. On the flip side, Badger is currently slower for range key-value iteration, but that has a lot of room for optimization.

不過我覺得有些重要的功能在 Badger 不提供,這比起來有種橘子比蘋果的感覺... 像是 RocksDB 提供了 Transaction,而 Badger 則是直接講明他們不打算支援 Transaction:

Keep it simple, stupid. No support for transactions, versioning or snapshots -- anything that can be done outside of the store should be done outside.

EBS 有動態長大的功能了...

Amazon EBS 可以動態增加大小了,是個對不少人還蠻方便的功能:「Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS) Enables Live Volume Modifications with Elastic Volumes」。

這邊講的沒有 downtime 當然還是得需要 filesystem 支援:

Today we are introducing the Elastic Volumes feature for Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS). This new capability allows you to modify configurations of live volumes with a simple API call or a few console clicks. Elastic Volumes makes it easy to dynamically increase capacity, tune performance, and change the type of any new or existing current generation volume with no downtime or performance impact.

另外提到一個特殊的組合,是配合 CloudWatchLambda 調整:

You can streamline and automate changes using Amazon CloudWatch with AWS Lambda.

這方法頗有趣的 XDDD
