As a Joomla community volunteer, I am always looking for opportunities to help my favorite CMS grow and add new features. Following these ideas, Twilio and Joomla are a perfect match to bring the possibilities of a first-level communication platform to small and medium-size organizations. In this blog post, I am going to create the required extensions for Joomla to incorporate a simple communication channel to a website by creating a click to call button.

I have planned a series of articles about the topic of implementing a communication solution for Joomla based on Twilio. In this first installment, I provide a ready-to-use extension for Joomla and the detailed steps to implement it (no coding skills are required). Later on, I’ll publish the rationale behind the development process.

If you are looking for a simple solution, you can just download the latest release and deploy it on your site.

For this tutorial you will need a basic website configuration:

  • Local installation of Joomla (preferably version 3.8 or superior). The full detail of CMS requirements can be found here.
  • PHP 5.5 or superior. PHP 7.2 is highly recommended.
  • MySQL 5.1 or superior. MySQL 5.5.3 + is recommended.

A ready-to-use extension for Joomla

To start using the extension, you can download the latest release from the Github repository: https://github.com/anibalsanchez/XT-Twilio-for-Joomla/releases

The package includes each of the elements ready to be used. The following steps show the steps to configure and use the solution from the point of view of a Joomla administrator (no coding skills required).

Step 1: Install the extension

Once you download the extension, you can install it in the Extension Manager (Extensions / Install).

Step 2: The Twilio Account Configuration

Before implementing the Joomla solution for Twilio, you need to configure the Account. You will need your Twilio Account API Credentials to implement the user-facing functionality:

  • LIVE Credentials
    • ACCOUNT SID
    • AUTH TOKEN
  • TEST Credentials
    • ACCOUNT SID
    • AUTH TOKEN

The credentials can be found here: https://www.twilio.com/console/project/settings

A Note About Twilio Credentials:

In the account configuration, the Twilio Phone Number and other phone numbers are going to be managed. Please, take note of the following points:

  • Each phone number, SMS message, and phone calls have an associated cost.
  • Twilio has strict controls over permissions and capabilities.
  • The Twilio Phone Number must have the SMS and/or Voice capabilities.
  • If you are going to start testing with a Trial account, it only allows one Twilio Phone Number per account.
  • Remember, Phone Numbers must have the Country Code (even if you are testing in your local area).

Step 2: Configure the account in the Ajax plugin

At this point of the project, you have the account API credentials and can configure them in the plugin that communicates the website frontend with Twilio backend. To configure the plugin from the Joomla admin menu, navigate to Extensions > Plugins >  Ajax - XT Twilio for Joomla and input the credentials from Step 1.

The plugin stores the Twilio API Credentials internally in the site database to connect the site with the REST API.

A note about phone numbers:

  • The Twilio Phone number is provided in your Account administration in E.164 format. E.164 is the international telephone numbering plan that ensures each device on the PSTN has a globally unique number. You can find more information about the format here: What is E.164?
  • The Salesman Phone Number is your own number or a verified number that Twilio service is going to call establishing connections. You can find your Account verified numbers here: Verified Caller IDs

Step 3: Configure the module to contact customers by SMS

The module functionality allows visitors to enter their phone number and a message, and with the click of the “Send SMS” button; the action sends an SMS to the backend operator to provide help or support.

To test the contact form: Fill in the fields and submit it to receive an SMS. In this way, you will validate the account configuration and complete the circle. Before testing the module in the front-end, be sure that the module is assigned and enabled in a visible position of your template. To configure the module from the Joomla admin menu, navigate to Extensions > Module > Twilio for Joomla - Contact by SMS module.

Step 4: Contact customers with a click 2 call button

The Click-2-Call module shows a form to ask for the customer phone number and a button to initiate a Click to Call operation. The action uses the Twilio Programmable Voice functionality to call the user, confirm the first leg of the communication and then calls the sales phone number to complete the conference setup.

To test the contact form: Fill in the phone field and click on the button. In this way, you will validate the account configuration and connect a user phone with a sales phone. As always, before testing the module in the front-end, remember to assign the module in a visible position of your template and enable it in the backend. To configure the module, from the Joomla admin menu, navigate to Extensions > Module > Twilio for Joomla - Click 2 Call.

Next Steps

After completing the previous configuration, Joomla is ready to send SMS messages, or support a Click2Call workflow between users and the sales area. In this article, I have presented the case of an administrator configuring a simple solution to start using the Twilio solution for SMS and Voice Cloud Messaging.

I have published the XT Twilio for Joomla in the extension directory (JED), and you can also download the code from this repository.

https://github.com/anibalsanchez/XT-Twilio-for-Joomla.

Basically, the package includes the following extensions that work together to integrate Twilio and Joomla:

  • Twilio for Joomla - Library: This extension is a wrapper of the official Twilio PHP SDK to install the SDK at the system level.
  • Twilio for Joomla - Ajax plugin: This plugin is going to allow the communication between the following modules and Twilio REST API.
  • Twilio for Joomla - Contact by SMS module: This module is going to provide a contact form to send SMS messages to a backend phone number.
  • Twilio for Joomla - Click 2 Call module: This module is going to establish a call between the customer a the backend phone number.

All of them are going to be packed and distributed in a single package for the extension.

Based on this initial version of a Twilio implementation for Joomla, a world of possibilities are open. We can continue implementing features of the Twilio SDK and explore the synergies of the different services within the ecosystem of extensions.

To the moon!

Daily News Links Are Below These Opening Questions And Warnings
How much carbon monoxide are you in when in any motor vehicle?

Did you know that many people do not measure the air they breathe.

After prevention there is no greater awareness than measurement.
Awareness leads to quick thinking. Measurement leads to quick action.

Are you in the know?

Do I know enough about carbon monoxide and carbon monoxide poisoning to justify never knowing how much is in the air I breathe every day, everywhere I go?”

There are some people who want to be notified of the presence of carbon monoxide at levels or concentrations as soon as the gas is present, at concentrations well below those that can instigate poor health symptoms but not be high enough levels to sound the CO alarm they own.

There are some people who do not want to push a button on their CO alarm to see what low, aggravating levels of the poison might be in their home, or anywhere.


The most recommended CO Alarm in U.S. is a high level alarm

We have all been CO poisoned, some more than others
The following link takes you to a site with views from those who have been poisoned. The seriousness of carbon monoxide poisoning, the grief, suffering and disorientations experienced are clearly portrayed with the intent to help others and prevent future poisonings. With respect, please visit: Carbon Monoxide Survivor

What is in the air you are breathing right now?

What will you be doing today; walking into poison?
Who will be responsible for the air you breathe?
You may be the only person who can prevent your own poisoning.
We are all vulnerable to carbon monoxide exposure and poisoning.
Everyone has been poisoned by CO and will be poisoned again. The degree of the poisoning depends upon allowing yourself to be in a situation where someone else controls the air you breathe and the mechanisms for alarming notification.

Please read the alarm information on the package and in the instructions that come with the carbon monoxide alarm. Know that if it is a U.L. 2034 Listed product (or CSA 6.19 Listed), it is a high level alarm that has been tested to alarm no sooner than 70 PPM at the lowest (the alarm must resist for one hour when above this level) and when over 400 PPM before 15 minutes at the highest concentration, after resisting alarming for 4 minutes when over this level.

Know when your fire department and emergency responders begin wearing their breathing apparatus and what their civilian evacuation levels are for carbon monoxide; it may be as soon as the gas is present in your presence. Pregnant women, infants & children, people with heart & respiratory struggles, those suffering depression or chronic headaches and all people of vulnerable health should be alerted as soon as the gas begins to concentrate, around 10 PPM (parts per million) or lower.

You most likely need a low level carbon monoxide detector to sound off when carbon monoxide hazards are just beginning, not after you’ve been exposed to levels that make you have headaches, flu-like symptoms, increased tiredness, heart stresses or worse.

Do not take risks with carbon monoxide. Take responsibility for the air you breathe and the combustion systems you are responsible for. If you don’t do it for yourself, do it for others, unless you think $45.00, high level protection is good enough.

Help prevent injuries and deaths; don’t guess about carbon monoxide. Measure carbon monoxide for safety and knowledge. The more you test the more you learn. GET BUSY

Measurement is continuing education at its best. Bob Dwyer, CSME Carbon Monoxide Safety

Carbon monoxide may be an important molecule in migraine and other headaches
SAGE Journals - SAGE Publications
Abstract: Introduction - Carbon monoxide was previously considered to just be a toxic gas. A wealth of recent information has, however, shown that it is also an important endogenously produced signalling molecule involved in multiple biological processes. Endogenously produced carbon monoxide may thus play an important role in nociceptive processing and in regulation of cerebral arterial tone. (More)

Tribute
George Kerr, a pioneer in smoke and carbon monoxide alarm manufacturing passed away in his home during the early morning of July 4, 2017. George will always be remembered for his passion to save lives and protect the health of people through low level carbon monoxide detection and alarming. He lived for over 84 years, beginning his career in fire safety in 1953. “We’ll never know how many lives we’re saving, but I know we are saving a few.” George E. Kerr (1933-2017)

          OMV Presents the Sustainability Strategy 2025      Cache   Translate Page      

Growing demand for energy and accelerating climate change pose immense challenges for the energy sector. The key lies in finding the balance between climate protection efforts, affordable energy, and reliable supply. Alternative energy systems as well as economically viable and scalable technologies for industry and the private sector must be developed. Here, OMV will make a significant contribution to the sustainable energy supply of future generations.

OMV, the integrated, international oil and gas company based in Vienna, presents its OMV Sustainability Strategy 2025 today. The strategy is part of OMV’s Corporate Strategy 2025. Fifteen measurable targets have been set in the five focus areas: “Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE)”, “Carbon Efficiency”, “Innovation”, “Employees”, as well as “Business Principles and Social Responsibility”.

Rainer Seele, Chairman of the Executive Board and CEO of OMV: “Our goal is to provide ‘oil and gas at its best’. We are convinced that a responsible approach to oil and the increased use of gas will support the energy transition. Together with other energies, oil and gas will secure the energy needs of the future.”

Health, safety, security and environment
Health, safety, security and the environment are the top priority for OMV.

In order to make its vision “Zero harm – No losses” a reality, OMV is committed to proactive risk management. Thanks to this, OMV occupies a leading position among its peers in the industry.

Building on this success, OMV has set the goal of stabilizing the lost-time injury frequency rate (= number of lost-workday injuries per million hours worked) at under 0.3 and maintaining its leading position in process safety in order to protect people and the environment.

Carbon efficiency
OMV is committed to the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement, the EU climate targets for 2030, and the climate and energy strategy of the Austrian Federal Government derived from these. The area of carbon efficiency defines OMV’s contribution to the creation of a lower-carbon energy system. Taking the figures from the baseline year 2010, by 2025 OMV aims to reduce the carbon intensity of its business activities by 19% by implementing the World Bank’s “Zero Routine Flaring by 2030” initiative, amongst other measures. The carbon intensity of the product portfolio should be reduced by 4%.

As predicted by the International Energy Agency, oil and gas will continue to play a crucial role in the global transformation of the energy mix in the coming decades. Oil remains a valuable and important raw material which, however, will be refined in petrochemical processes rather than burned. OMV focuses on high-quality refinery products such as low-emission premium fuels, and feedstocks for the chemical industry. Gas will play a decisive role in the energy transition. It can be used in almost all areas and also enables a rapid coal phase-out. In electricity production, gas emits 50% less carbon than coal. OMV will increase the share of gas in its portfolio to over 50% and also aims to double gas sales in Europe.

Innovation
In total, OMV will invest up to EUR 500 mn by 2025 in innovative energy solutions such as ReOil and Co-Processing, for a lower-carbon future. Establishing gas as an energy source of the future requires seeking out and analyzing technologies for the cost-effective use of climate-neutral gas. Innovative enhanced oil recovery projects strive to make oil production more environmentally efficient.

In the ReOil research and development project, waste plastics are converted back into high-quality crude, which can then be further processed into fuels or high-quality plastics. The pilot plant at Schwechat Refinery processes 100 kg of waste plastics per hour to produce 100 l of synthetic crude. OMV aims to develop ReOil into a profitable, industrial-scale process with a capacity of around 200,000 tonnes per year.

Co-Processing is an innovative method in which biogenic substances such as rapeseed oil and used food-grade oils are refined together with crude oil to produce diesel with a higher bio content. In contrast to conventional biofuel mixtures, Co-Processing improves fuel quality, in particular in regards to the energy content. OMV aims at raising the part of sustainable feedstock co-processed in the refineries to around 200,000 t per year by 2025.

Employees
OMV sees its employees as the key to its success. Diversity is a high priority, which is why targeted measures are also planned in this area. In particular, OMV is striving to increase the proportion of women at management level to at least 25% from the current level of 18%. Measures to this end include leadership and mentoring programs. Another goal is to keep the proportion of executives with international experience at 75%.

Business principles and social responsibility
OMV can look back on a long history of doing business in a socially responsible way and creating added value for society. The guidelines for these activities are the United Nations (UN) Global Compact, the UN Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights, and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. By 2025, OMV will review its stakeholder dialog at all sites according to the UN’s effectiveness criteria and train employees in human rights and business ethics issues. Compliance with business principles also needs to be ensured at suppliers, which is why sustainability audits are increasingly being carried out.

          November Was the Deadliest Month Since 2015 of the 17-Years-and-Counting War in Afghanistan      Cache   Translate Page      

A fourth service member has died from injuries sustained when a Taliban-claimed roadside bomb exploded near U.S. troops in Afghanistan’s Ghazni province on Nov. 27, the Department of Defense says. Army Sgt. Jason Mitchell McClary of Export, Pennsylvania, passed away Sunday in Landstuhl, Germany. He was 24.

In addition to the three service members killed immediately in the Nov. 27 attack, two other U.S. troops died in Afghanistan earlier in the month—an Army Ranger who was shot to death in western Afghanistan on Nov. 24 and a National Guardsman who was killed in Kabul on Nov. 3. According to the iCasualties database, those five deaths in November proper make the month the deadliest for U.S. forces in the country since December 2015.

The first deaths related to the U.S. military’s Afghanistan engagement were recorded in October 2001, shortly after 9/11. As Slate’s Fred Kaplan noted in October 2018, that means that U.S. armed forces can now recruit 17-year-olds (who can enlist with parental consent) who weren’t yet born when the conflict began. In addition to our original Afghanistan enemies, the Taliban and al-Qaida, the U.S. is now fighting ISIS insurgents in the country as well. Wrote Kaplan: “We are no closer than we have ever been to accomplishing our objectives [in Afghanistan], in part because those objectives have been so sketchily, inconsistently, and unrealistically defined.”

Relatedly, here’s one memorable paragraph from a memorable piece in the New Yorker earlier this year about a CIA officer who worked in Afghanistan and Iraq, became disillusioned, quit his job, and joined the police force in his hometown of Savannah, Georgia, as a beat cop:

“We write these strategic white papers, saying things like ‘Get the local Sunni population on our side,’ ” Skinner said. “Cool. Got it. But, then, if I say, ‘Get the people who live at Thirty-eighth and Bulloch on our side,’ you realize, man, that’s fucking hard—and it’s just a city block. It sounds so stupid when you apply the rhetoric over here. Who’s the leader of the white community in Live Oak neighborhood? Or the poor community?” Skinner shook his head. “ ‘Leader of the Iraqi community.’ What the fuck does that mean?”

Well … anyway … onward to victory!


          PUBLIC-18F077 TOY MODERN      Cache   Translate Page      
An incomplete lead-alloy toy or souvenir of Modern date (AD 1838-1911). The object is a miniature replica of the Coronation Chair, or St. Edward's Chair, in Westminster Abbey, which was commissioned by Edward I to contain the Stone of Scone. The object has moulded decoration, including lions at the base of the throne's legs (three are remaining) and quatrefoil and arched decoration on the sides. The back of the throne does not have any decoration, however, there is some lettering, which is mainly illegible. The word LONDON can be discerned as well as AUG 1902. The metal is cream in colour with a smooth patina.The Coronation Chair was commissioned during the rule of Edward I (AD 1279-1307). This toy dates to the modern period, being possibly 19th or 20th century in date. It is very similar to leaden replicas of the Coronation Chair made by J Renvoize & Co of London, to celebrate the Coronation of Edward VII in 1902. Complete examples have on the back 'Made in London' and the monogram 'JR &Co' in raised moulding. Most, it seems, were once gilded. An example of a 1902 model is in the collections of the National Trust at Mr Straw's House Nottinghamshire.Similar souvenirs were made by the toy manufacturer W Britain (later Britain's) for the Coronation of George VI in 1937 and Elizabeth II in 1953. The possible dates also include 1838 (Victoria), 1902 (Edward VII) and 1911 (George V).This object is clearly marked AUG 1902 and was probably made as a souvenir to the Coronation of Edward VII.Similar examples can be seen on the Portable Antiquities Database: NARC-8B54BA, SWYOR-D0C917 and BERK-245A92.Height: 44.2mm, Width: 30.6mm, Depth: 19.5mm and Thickness: 2.6mm.Weight: 66.6gm.

  • A new browser for Magic Leap [Ed: Mozilla VR Blog's Andre Vrignaud published "A new browser for Magic Leap". Then it was removed. Prematurely and accidentally announced?]

    Today, we’re making available an early developer preview of a browser for the Magic Leap One device. This browser is built on top of our Servo engine technology and shows off high quality 2D graphics and font rendering through our WebRender web rendering library. And will soon add more features.

    While we only support basic 2D pages today and have not yet built the full Firefox Reality browser experience and published this into the Magic Leap store, we look forward to working alongside our partners and community to do that early in 2019! Please try out the builds, provide feedback, and get involved if you’re interested in the future of mixed reality on the web in a cutting-edge standalone headset. And for those looking at Magic Leap for the first time, we also have an article on how the work was done.

  • encoding_rs: a Web-Compatible Character Encoding Library in Rust

    encoding_rs is a high-decode-performance, low-legacy-encode-footprint and high-correctness implementation of the WHATWG Encoding Standard written in Rust. In Firefox 56, encoding_rs replaced uconv as the character encoding library used in Firefox. This wasn’t an addition of a component but an actual replacement: uconv was removed when encoding_rs landed. This writeup covers the motivation and design of encoding_rs, as well as some benchmark results.

    Additionally, encoding_rs contains a submodule called encoding_rs::mem that’s meant for efficient encoding-related operations on UTF-16, UTF-8, and Latin1 in-memory strings—i.e., the kind of strings that are used in Gecko C++ code. This module is discussed separately after describing encoding_rs proper.

    The C++ integration of encoding_rs is not covered here and is covered in another write-up instead.

  • wasm-bindgen — how does it work?!

    A month or so ago I gave a presentation on the inner workings of wasm-bindgen to the WebAssembly Community Group. A particular focus was the way that wasm-bindgen is forward-compatible with, and acts as a sort of polyfill for, the host bindings proposal. A lot of this material was originally supposed to appear in my SFHTML5 presentation, but time constraints forced me to cut it out.

    Unfortunately, the presentation was not recorded, but you can view the slide deck below, or open it in a new window. Navigate between slides with arrow keys or space bar.

  • More on RLS version numbering

    In a few days the 2018 edition is going to roll out, and that will include some new framing around Rust's tooling. We've got a core set of developer tools which are stable and ready for widespread use. We're going to have a blog post all about that, but for now I wanted to address the status of the RLS, since when I last blogged about a 1.0 pre-release there was a significant sentiment that it was not ready (and given the expectations that a lot of people have, we agree).

  • Using cargo-fuzz to Transfer Code Review of Simple Safe Code to Complex Code that Uses unsafe

    encoding_rs::mem is a Rust module for performing conversions between different in-RAM text representations that are relevant to Gecko. Specifically, it converts between potentially invalid UTF-16, Latin1 (in the sense that unsigned byte value equals the Unicode scalar value), potentially invalid UTF-8, and guaranteed-valid UTF-8, and provides some operations on buffers in these encodings, such as checking if a UTF-16 or UTF-8 buffer only has code points in the ASCII range or only has code points in the Latin1 range. (You can read more about encoding_rs::mem in a write-up about encoding_rs as a whole.)

  • How I Wrote a Modern C++ Library in Rust

    Since version 56, Firefox has had a new character encoding conversion library called encoding_rs. It is written in Rust and replaced the old C++ character encoding conversion library called uconv that dated from early 1999. Initially, all the callers of the character encoding conversion library were C++ code, so the new library, despite being written in Rust, needed to feel usable when used from C++ code. In fact, the library appears to C++ callers as a modern C++ library. Here are the patterns that I used to accomplish that.

  • Firefox & cookies corruption problem

    A strange problem befell one of my computers running Windows, with Firefox being the default browser, utilizing a profile that goes back a good decade or more. One blue Monday, I opened the browser, went to one of the sites I frequently visit and use, and noticed that I'd been logged out. Another site, same thing. It would appear all my login sessions were gone.

    Since I keep multiple backups of everything, I restored the Firefox cookies database - cookies.sqlite file into the Firefox profile, and I was back to normal. Several days later, the issue happened again. Intrigued, I started exploring this somewhat obscure and not-well-documented problem. I believe I know why, and I have a solution.

          Re: 11th Street Methodist Episcopal Church Cemetery       Cache   Translate Page      
The church record reads "died in the Lord 12 Nov 1915". It has nothing about his burial. The death certificate says Westminister Cemetery. On findagrave it has him buried i Westminister Cemetery in Bala Cynwyd - not terribly far from the location of his residence (Mantua) in Philadelphia.

https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/139323653/charles-a-huff

There is a database with defunct cemetery and there is not cemetery associated with the 11th St. Methodist Episcopal Church (the record book on page 3 says the church was located at 11th St above Washington)

          Bypass of Disabled System Functions      Cache   Translate Page      

Imagine that you discover an Unrestricted File Upload vulnerability and upload a web shell to the server. Or, you have a payload that allows you to execute commands on the system through Local File Inclusion (LFI) or Remote File Inclusion (RFI) vulnerabilities.

Bypass of Disabled System Functions

When you execute the command that’s expected to call system functions on the server side, you’re greeted by a surprise warning which states that you’re not allowed to execute the function because it’s disabled.

www.example.com/shell.php?cmd=whoami

Warning: system() has been disabled for security reasons in /var/www/html/shell.php on line 6

The disable_functions directive in the php.ini configuration file allows you to disable certain PHP functions. One of the suggested hardening practices is to disable functions such as system, exec, shell_exec, passthru, by using the disable_functions directive to prevent an attacker from executing system commands. However, a user named Twoster in the Russian Antichat forum announced a new bypass method to this security mechanism. In this blog post, we discuss the technical details of the bypass.

The Exploit Code of the Bypass

Last week, Anton Lopanitsyn shared the exploit code on Github after the announcement on the Antichat forum. In the exploit code, it’s clear that the bypass relies on the imap_open() function, which is activated after the installation of the imap extension on PHP.

<?php
# CRLF (c)
# echo '1234567890'>/tmp/test0001

$server = "x -oProxyCommand=echo\tZWNobyAnMTIzNDU2Nzg5MCc+L3RtcC90ZXN0MDAwMQo=|base64\t-d|sh}";

imap_open('{'.$server.':143/imap}INBOX', '', '') or die("\n\nError: ".imap_last_error());

The imap_open() function doesn’t readily exist in the PHP core. It’s a wrapper for imapd, designed by the researchers at the University of Washington. As stated above, PHP will have the imap_open() function defined only after you've installed the IMAP PHP extension. Let’s analyze each component in the exploit code.

The Parameters of imap_open Function

We’re going to take a closer look at the mailbox parameter the function takes, to understand how the imap_open function works in the exploit. Here is the syntax of the function:

resource imap_open ( string $mailbox , string $username , string $password [, int $options = 0 [, int $n_retries = 0 [, array $params = NULL ]]] )

The value for the mailbox parameter consists of the server name and the mailbox file path on the server. The name INBOX stands for the current user’s personal mailbox. This is how you set the mailbox parameter:

$mbox = imap_open ("{localhost:993/PROTOCOL/FLAG}INBOX", "user_id", "password");

Between the brackets, you can see the server name or IP address, the port number (after the colon) and the protocol name. After the protocol name, the user can choose to set a flag as the third parameter.

The warning in the official documentation of PHP about setting up the imap_open parameters is crucial.

This warning states that unless enable_insecure_rsh is disabled, the user data should not be directly transmitted to the mailbox parameter.

This warning states that unless enable_insecure_rsh is disabled, the user data should not be directly transmitted to the mailbox parameter. Let's take a look at  how the IMAP extension works to understand what the enable_insecure_rsh configuration option does, and why the warning prompts users to disable it.

The IMAP Server Types and SSH Connection

There are two Unix-based IMAP servers that are widely used. One is imapd, developed by the University of Washington, and the other is the IMAP server developed by Cyrus.

Cyrus stores the user emails in a built-in database. So, accessing Cyrus is only possible through the IMAP protocol. This is why when Cyrus is in use, there are no connections between user accounts on the Unix system on which the IMAP is installed and the IMAP accounts.

On the other hand, imapd stores the emails in files owned by the mail users on the Unix system, such as /var/spool/mail. User accounts and access privileges on imapd are directly related to the Unix server. If your mails are stored in a spool file to which you have authorization, you can login through SSH and verify your privileges on the files.

There’s no need for the entire procedure to establish an IMAP connection when there’s SSH. The imap_open function initially establishes an SSH connection and, if authorized, proceeds without an IMAP connection. This is called the IMAP preauthenticated mode. The warning given for passing the value in the mailbox parameter is based on this. The mailbox value will be passed on to the SSH command as a parameter while setting up an SSH connection.

Before the secure SSH protocol was widely used, there was a protocol called rsh. However, it's quite insecure by default, doesn't use encryption and shouldn't be used for connections outside (and even inside) the local network. The imap.enable_insecure_rsh configuration option deactivates both rsh and ssh for preauthentication.

The -oProxyCommand in the Exploit

One of the many parameters the SSH command uses is the -o parameter, which allows you to set the options available for use during the connection. ProxyCommand is one of the options that can be set right before commencing the SSH connection. For example:

ssh -oProxyCommand="touch tmp.txt" localhost

When you execute this command, you’ll realize that the tmp.txt file will be created even if an SSH connection is not made to localhost.

The -oProxyCommand in the Exploit

Due to all the components in the exploit code, a system which has functions such as system and passthru disabled will still be vulnerable to executing commands in RFI or LFI vulnerabilities.

Additional Measures Against the Bypass

There are two ways to protect yourself against the dangers of the imap PHP extension. The first is by checking for any special characters (such as forward slashes) whenever you pass user input to imap_open, which would prevent a Remote Code Execution vulnerability. We stated above that you can use certain flags within the mailbox parameter. The /norsh flag is one of these and you should set it in order to disable the IMAP preauthenticated mode.

In addition, an effective defence against the disable_functions bypass is to disable the imap.enable_insecure_rsh option by giving a '0' value in the php.ini file. However, in PHP version 5, this option isn’t available, so you should think twice whether you need the imap extension and whether you should add imap_open to your list of disabled functions.

          88mila nuovi posti di lavoro ICT nei prossimi tre anni      Cache   Translate Page      

La quarta edizione dell’Osservatorio delle Competenze Digitali, condotto da AICA, Anitec-Assinform, Assintel e Assinter Italia con il supporto di CFMT, Confcommercio, Confindustria e il patrocinio di MIUR e AGID, conferma che il lavoro ICT è in crescita.

La crescita degli annunci web per le professioni ICT continua ed emergono profili nuovi.

Sono stati 64.000 gli annunci pubblicati in rete nel 2017, numero più che raddoppiato negli ultimi 4 anni, registrando un incremento del +7% rispetto al 2016.

E le stime per il triennio 2018-2020 parlano di 88.000 nuovi posti di lavoro specializzati in ICT.

Sviluppatori in testa alla classifica del lavoro ICT

Con una crescita del 19% sull’anno precedente e una quota di annunci sul web di 49%, gli Sviluppatori guidano la classifica dei ruoli più ricercati, seguiti dai consulenti ICT, richiesti in un annuncio su sei.

Cresce progressivamente anche la quota delle nuove professioni connaturate alla trasformazione digitale quali il Service Development Manager, il Big Data Specialist e il Cyber security Officer.

A livello territoriale il maggiore incremento si concentra nel Nord-Ovest e in particolare in Lombardia, con una quota della domanda de 48% del totale Italia.

Qui i livelli di richiesta per i Big Data Specialist e i Service Development Manager raggiungono il 60%.

Insieme all’ICT, è il settore Servizi ad avere la quota maggiore (20%) della domanda di professionisti per la trasformazione digitale: i più richiesti sono l’ICT Operation Manager (56%), il Digital Media Specialist (53%) e l’ICT Consultant (45%).

Retribuzioni in crescita

Anche le retribuzioni 2017 dei profili IT sono in crescita: nelle aziende di informatica ed elettronica i Quadri registrano +4,3% e i Dirigenti +6,0%. Nelle aziende di Consulenza e Servizi ICT crescono le retribuzioni degli Impiegati +2,5%, dei Dirigenti (+1,9%) e dei Quadri +1,8%.
Troppi diplomati, servono laureati ICT con le skill che richiede il mercato

Il gap tra domanda e offerta di specialisti ICT però conferma che occorre agire al più presto se si vogliono cogliere tutte le potenzialità del nuovo mercato del lavoro digitale.

Le stime dell’Osservatorio mostrano per il 2018 un fabbisogno di laureati per le aziende che oscilla fra i 12.800 e i 20.500, mentre l’Università dovrebbe laurearne poco più di 8.500: un gap che arriva dunque al 58%. Opposta la situazione per i Diplomati: il fabbisogno oscillerà fra i 7.900 e i 12.600, con un surplus che oscillerà fra i 3.400 e gli 8.100 (27%).

I laureati ICT dunque crescono ma troppo lentamente: nel 2017 toccano le 7.700 unità, in lievissima crescita rispetto al 2016, ma sono calati gli specialisti in Informatica e Ingegneria Informatica (INFO), pari a 4.460.

Si attenua la tendenza dei laureati a terminare gli studi dopo la laurea triennale (+3% da +10% nel 2016) mentre continua l’incremento nelle immatricolazioni anche se in misura ridotta (+3,5% contro il +9% nel 2016) e con percentuali di abbandono che restano elevate (si laurea solo il 40% degli immatricolati nelle triennali, come nel 2016).

La tendenza alla crescita delle immatricolazioni in Area ICT non è uniforme: Nord-Ovest, Nord-Est e Sud crescono al ritmo del 6%, le Isole addirittura +13%, diminuisce il Centro (-9,2%). In termini di genere resta molto bassa la quota femminile: circa il 19% contro il 53% nella media di tutti i corsi.

Digital skill rate

La rilevanza delle skill digitali è misurata dal Digital skill rate, ovvero il grado di pervasività delle competenze digitali all’interno di una singola professione: in media 48% per le professioni ICT e 14% per le professioni non ICT.

Il Digital Skill Rate varia tra il 30% e il 51% per quasi tutte le professioni ICT e supera il 51% per Database Administrator, Developer, Systems Analyst e Technical e Network Specialist. Passando alle Soft Skill, esse diventano più pervasive in tutte le professioni: in media per le professioni ICT il soft skill rate si attesta al 28%, mentre è pari al 35% per le professioni non ICT.

Le punte di maggiore rilevanza delle soft skill (tra il 38% e il 51%) si rilevano per ICT Operations Manager, Account Manager, ICT Consultant, Project Manager, Cyber security Officer e Business Analyst.

Digital gap, le soluzioni

Per colmare il disallineamento tra domanda e offerta di competenze e professioni ICT, l’Osservatorio propone un sistema di politiche per la formazione e il lavoro delle nuove professioni ICT articolato in 4 ambiti strategici.

Aumento di laureati e di esperti informatici con competenze avanzate attraverso fidelizzazione degli studenti ICT e maggiore attrattività per lauree e diplomi superiori ICT. Diminuire la dispersione degli studenti ICT nel passaggio da scuola secondaria a università e, quindi, nel completamento dei percorsi di studio e avvicinare più studenti da diplomi non ICT ai percorsi di studio ICT. Sono questi gli obiettivi più urgenti per rimuovere il divario nel mix di laureati contro diplomati che entrano sul mercato (33% vs 67%) rispetto a quello richiesto (62% vs 38%)

Rinnovamento e qualità dei percorsi di studio ICT. Le professioni ICT più richieste si caratterizzano per un mix articolato di conoscenze tecnologiche a rapida obsolescenza e competenze sempre più avanzate per governare strategicamente i cambiamenti. Acquisire questo mix di skill tecnologiche, manageriali e soft in tempi rapidi richiede accesso a percorsi di studio più innovativi (anche con tecniche di autoapprendimento) e continua esperienza sul campo

Rafforzamento di aggiornamento permanente e riconversione professionale. Il paradosso degli informatici sempre più richiesti nelle fasce di età più giovani e sempre più disoccupati nelle fasce di età sopra i 35 (anche con disoccupazione crescente per i profili in phase-out) richiede una maggiore cultura dell’aggiornamento permanete attraverso canali di auto-apprendimento già ampiamente utilizzati nelle economie più digitalmente avanzate

Nuovi modelli di interazione Domanda-Offerta nel mercato del lavoro per le professioni ICT. Maggiori informazione, consapevolezza e cooperazione tra aziende, scuola/università e ricerca possono avvicinare e coinvolgere la domanda nelle iniziative di sviluppo e attrazione dei talenti digitali a diversi livelli.

          Two Words For Faster Scalar Functions      Cache   Translate Page      
Watch this week’s episode on YouTube.

WITH SCHEMABINDING optimizations were added all the way back in SQL Server 2005.  So why bother talking about them in 2018?

Because no one is taking advantage of them!

Ok, maybe that’s a little unfair.  I’m sure some people advantage of the optimizations, but most code I see posted online that could benefit doesn’t include it.  So let’s talk about an easy way for some of our non-data-accessing scalar functions to get a performance boost.

WITH SCHEMABINDING

When you create a function or view, you can add the WITH SCHEMABINDING option to prevent any database objects that the view/function uses from being modified.  This is a pretty cool feature which prevents you from making a table or column change that would cause a view/function to break.

And while that’s pretty cool functionality on its own, what’s even better is that the SQL Server optimizer can do some pretty cool things when it knows one of your non-data accessing scalar functions is schema bound.

For example, let’s say we have these two functions.  You’ll notice the second one includes the WITH SCHEMABINDING syntax:

DROP FUNCTION IF EXISTS dbo.UDF_RemoveSpaces_NotSchemaBound;
GO
CREATE FUNCTION dbo.UDF_RemoveSpaces_NotSchemaBound(@input VARCHAR(100))
    RETURNS VARCHAR(100)
BEGIN
    RETURN REPLACE(@input,' ','')
END;
GO
 
DROP FUNCTION IF EXISTS dbo.UDF_RemoveSpaces_SchemaBound;
GO
CREATE FUNCTION dbo.UDF_RemoveSpaces_SchemaBound(@input VARCHAR(100)) 
    RETURNS VARCHAR(100) WITH SCHEMABINDING
BEGIN
    RETURN REPLACE(@input,' ','')
END;
GO

When SQL Server executes a function, by default it checks whether the function has any database objects it needs to access.  For our example functions above, this is a waste of time since neither function accesses any data.

The WITH SCHEMABINDING option forces SQL Server to take note at function creation time whether any data access is occurring.  This allows SQL Server to skip that check at run time and allowing the function to execute significantly faster:

SET STATISTICS IO, TIME ON;

SELECT dbo.UDF_RemoveSpaces_NotSchemaBound('Oh yeah') AS CleanValue
INTO #Temp1
FROM
    (SELECT * FROM master..spt_values WHERE number &lt; 500) t1 
    CROSS JOIN (SELECT * FROM master..spt_values WHERE number &lt; 500) t2;
/*
 SQL Server Execution Times:
   CPU time = 1594 ms,  elapsed time = 1977 ms.
*/

SELECT dbo.UDF_RemoveSpaces_SchemaBound('Oh yeah') AS CleanValue
INTO #Temp2
FROM
    (SELECT * FROM master..spt_values WHERE number &lt; 500) t1 
    CROSS JOIN (SELECT * FROM master..spt_values WHERE number &lt; 500) t2;
/*
SQL Server Execution Times:
   CPU time = 62 ms,  elapsed time = 59 ms.
*/

Take a look at those CPU times: 1594ms vs 62ms!  Since SQL Server saves a LOT of time by not having to verify the underlying data sources (for a more in-depth explanation of how SQL Server checks whether a function accesses data, I highly recommend reading this StackOverflow answer by Paul White).

WITH SCHEMABDINING also has performance optimization for queries that would normally need to implement Halloween Protection as well.  Halloween Protection essentially prevents SQL Server from modifying the same records more than once and usually implemented by the addition of an spool operator to the execution plan:

UPDATE #Temp1 SET CleanValue = dbo.UDF_RemoveSpaces_NotSchemaBound('Oh yeah');
UPDATE #Temp2 SET CleanValue = dbo.UDF_RemoveSpaces_SchemaBound('Oh yeah');

In this example, you’ll notice our non-schema-bound function introduces a Table Spool while our second schema-bound function forgoes this addition since SQL Server knows there won’t be any potential for conflict.

In conclusion, if you have a non-data-accessing scalar function you should always add WITH SCHEMABINDING to reap the benefits of SQL Server’s optimizations when available.

          Indexing In Memory OLTP Tables      Cache   Translate Page      

Indexing on In Memory OLTP tables is a little different from your traditional on-disk rowstore tables…

In Memory Differences…

  • There is no clustered index
  • The nonclustered index still exists but its structure is quite different.
  • There is a new hash index ideal for unique single record lookups

Below I’m going to go over these points with demos, these demos are all run on a data dump of the Stack Overflow Database from 2010 which can be downloaded from BrentOzar.com. They all revolve around creating the following in memory table and copying the relevant fields out of the Stack Overflow user table to test out different indexing strategies…

CREATE TABLE People
(
   Id INT,
   Name NVARCHAR(200),
   Location NVARCHAR(200),
   CONSTRAINT pk_people PRIMARY KEY NONCLUSTERED (id)
) WITH (MEMORY_OPTIMIZED = ON, DURABILITY=SCHEMA_AND_DATA) 

No Clustered Index

In Memory OLTP table indexes are just pointers to the in memory data structure for the row and all its columns, this means that from any item in an index you have full access to all the columns in the row with no lookups needed. This effectively makes a nonclustered index on an in memory table act like a clustered index in that it will be a covering index for any query that uses it.

NonClustered Index

These are quite different on in memory tables to on disk tables.

If you query an on-disk table index the query will via a seek or a scan end up on a leaf node which will contain the fields in the index and an identifier (RID or clustered index key) back to the underlying table for lookups to any additional fields the query needs.

In Memory indexes have eliminated the need for locking due to the way they work, traditional indexes use a B-Tree whereas In Memory indexes are something the SQL Server team coined as BW-Tree, you can read more about BW-Trees in this research paper.

The end result is much the same as the indexes you know and love with classic on-disk nonclustered indexes. One thing to note is that in memory table schema cannot be altered once it is created so and all indexes must be created inline with the table creation. Let’s create our in memory people table with a clustered index on Id (Primary Key) and Location…

CREATE TABLE People
(
   Id INT,
   Name NVARCHAR(200),
   Location NVARCHAR(200),
   CONSTRAINT pk_people PRIMARY KEY NONCLUSTERED (id),
   INDEX ix_people_location NONCLUSTERED(Location)
) WITH (MEMORY_OPTIMIZED = ON, DURABILITY=SCHEMA_AND_DATA) 

Lets then test our a couple of queries…

SELECT * FROM People WHERE id = 1

Index Seek#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Notice anything odd about that plan? Yup, no key lookup. It’s used the index ix_people_location which only has ID on it and no include fields yet we’ve managed to do a SELECT * with no key lookups! Result!

‘Lets look at another query…

SELECT * FROM People WHERE id < 100

Index Seek#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Again the exact same plan but this time we’ve returned 100 records with no key lookups, probably not surprising given the previous query but I just wanted to highlight it anyway.

Lastly, let’s look at a query with multiple matches on a single predicate

SELECT * FROM People WHERE Location = 'Brighton'

Index Seek#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Basically the same plan again with the only difference we’re now going against the location index.

Now let’s look at something else that does behave quite differently…

SELECT TOP 100 * FROM People ORDER BY Location

Orders Using Index#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Looks ok right, it’s returned the ordered data using our location index with no sort needed. Well, what happens if we want it descending?

SELECT TOP 100 * FROM People ORDER BY Location DESC

Orders Using Index#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Hmmm, Not Good. It’s performed a manual sort even though we have an index on the field we want sorted, an on disk nonclustered index would have no trouble with this. This is because on disk indexes use a doubly linked list to scan leaf nodes (Allowing 2 way traversal) whereas in memory tables do not. If you need to return data ordered in more than one direction then you need to define multiple indexes to store the data ordered.

New Hash Index

The Nonclustered index works great for finding ranges of records but when the SQL Server team were changing so much with In Memory OLTP they also designed a new type of index to speed up seeks to single unique records, e.g find me the record with id x. It’s actually just what it sounds like, SQL Server will hash the fields in the index and store that hash along with a pointer to the in memory location of the row(s).

Hash indexes perform great when the index is unique or very close to it, if however you start to get lots of records in the index hashing to the same value inserts and seeks and updates can slow down massively and you should think about using a nonclustered index instead.

When you define a hash index you have to tell it how many hash buckets you want, this should be a figure 1-2* the amount of unique values you plan to have in the index. A hash bucket defines how many possible values SQL Server will calculate when hashing your index. For example, if you define a hash bucket count of 10 will only ever give 10 possible hashes even if you store a million different values, in this case each bucket will end up with something like 100K rows which will all need to be scanned when you are seeking a record. Ideally, you want a single record per hash bucket then you can just hash the predicate in your query and go directly to the record. Something to watch out for here is that the values within a hash bucket are stored in order (This makes scans within a bucket faster) so if you under define your bucket count and end up with a many rows in a hash bucket then inserts\updates can take a big hit as once they’ve found the correct hash bucket they need to then scan through it to find the correct place to insert\move new row.

Because hash indexes are really designed for retrieving single rows they do not worry about sorting the data so if you’re doing anything that requires a range of data to be returned a hash index is not a good fit e.g WHERE x > y.

With the above in mind lets try a single record lookup, First, recreate the People table with a hash index on the ID field…

CREATE TABLE People
(
   Id INT,
   Name NVARCHAR(200),
   Location NVARCHAR(200),
   CONSTRAINT pk_people PRIMARY KEY 
      NONCLUSTERED HASH(Id) WITH (BUCKET_COUNT=1000000)
) WITH (MEMORY_OPTIMIZED = ON, DURABILITY=SCHEMA_AND_DATA) 

Now lets run our single record lookup from before…

SELECT * FROM People WHERE id = 1

Index Seek#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Pretty much the same query plan as the non clustered version however if we compare the cost of this one it’s gone from 0.0004596 to 0.0000175 so as expected the hash match for single record on a properly sized bucket far outperforms the nonclusterd index.

The End

With the above information, you should be armed with everything you need to create optimized indexes on your in memory tables.

          SQL Homework – December 2018 – Configure SSMS      Cache   Translate Page      

I’ve committed to posting a piece of homework for you to do each month. I post at the beginning of the month to give you plenty of time to get these done. They are basic tasks that we can all use practice on. For this month check your SSMS (SQL Server Management Studio) setup. Or Operations Studio, or whatever you are using. I didn’t know about you but there are times when I’ll find a small change to my setup will get rid of some minor annoyance or another. Of course, I’ll also find that I tend to put off that change and put up with the annoyance for ages. So this month fix that. Take a few minutes and look at the options for arranging your tool of choice to your convenience. You’ll probably spend 30 minutes or so and your life will be much easier.

If you are using SSMS here are some of my settings so you can see what’s available. I don’t necessarily recommend using these, they are what works best for me but if nothing else they will give you an idea of what can be done.


          Deadlocks in a SQL Server Database      Cache   Translate Page      

Deadlocks in SQL Server happen when 2 (maybe more) processes are fighting over a resource in the database and are trying to obtain an exclusive lock on that resource.  When SQL Server decides to pick a process to become it’s deadlock victim, it is an attempt to protect the database and resolve the issue of the processes fighting over the same resource.

Determining what processes are causing the deadlock can be tricky.  Luckily Microsoft provides a trace flag you can turn on (-T1204 and -T3605). These flags will write deadlock information to the SQL Server Error Log.  If you suspect you have a deadlocking problem you will most likely find the following error message in the SQL Server Output window:

Transaction (Process ID 1602) was deadlocked on lock resources with another process and has been chosen as the deadlock victim. Rerun the transaction.

When a deadlock occurs you can view the SQL Error Log to obtain more information regarding the deadlock and even information regarding what table is involved.

If you have a process that is doing database maintenance and you do not want this process to become a deadlock victim I suggest using the SET DEADLOCK PRIORITY  hint in your code.

If you are fighting a deadlock issue in your database the -T1204 and -T2605 trace flags are generally safe to turn on in production (you should always do this in test first) to allow you to capture and log information relating to the deadlocking to the error log.

          Getting SQL Services, Starting, Stopping and Restarting them with dbatools      Cache   Translate Page      

There was a question in the #dbatools slack channel 

dbatools question

Getting dbatools

dbatools enables you to administer SQL Server with PowerShell. To get it simply open PowerShell run

Install-Module dbatools

You can find more details on the web-site

Finding the Command

To find a command you can use the dbatools command Find-DbaCommand
For commands for service run

Find-DbaCommand Service

There are a whole bundle returned

find services.png

This is how you can find any dbatools command. There is also a -Tag parameter on Find-DbaCommand.

Find-DbaCommand -Tag Service

This returns

find services tag.png

How to use any PowerShell command

Always always start with Get-Help

Get-Help Get-DbaService -Detailed

get help.png

This will show you all the information about the command including examples ??

help examples.png

All of these commands below require that the account running the PowerShell is a Local Admin on the host.

One Host Many Hosts

Now I have used just one host for all of the examples on this page. Do not be fooled, you can always use an array of hosts wherever I have $ComputerName you can set it to as many hosts as you like

$ComputerName = 'SQL0','SQL1'

You can even get those names form a database, Excel sheet, CMS.

Getting the Services

So to get the services on a machine run

$ComputerName = 'Name of Computer'
Get-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName

getting servies 1.png

You can output into a table format.

Get-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName | Format-Table

I will use the alias ft for this in some of the examples, that is fine for the command line but use the full command name in any code that you write that other people use

services table.png
You have an object returned so you can output to anything if you want – CSV, JSON, text file, email, azure storage, database, the world is your oyster.

Getting the Services for one instance

The Get-DbaService command has a number of parameters. There is an InstanceName parameter enabling you to get only the services for one instance. If we just want the default instance services

Get-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -InstanceName MSSQLSERVER| Format-Table

default instances.png

Just the MIRROR instance services

Get-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -InstanceName MIRROR| Format-Table

mirror instances.png

Getting just the Engine or Agent services

You can also use the -Type parameter to get only services of a particular type. You can get one of the following: “Agent”,”Browser”,”Engine”,”FullText”,”SSAS”,”SSIS”,”SSRS”, “PolyBase”

So to get only the Agent Services

Get-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -Type Agent
agent services.png
You can combine the InstanceName and the Type parameters to get say only the default instance engine service
Get-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -InstanceName MSSQLSERVER -Type Engine
default engine service.png

Starting and stopping and restarting services

You can use Start-DbaService and Stop-DbaService to start and stop the services. They each have ComputerName, InstanceName and Type parameters like Get-DbaService.

So if after running

Get-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName | Format-Table

you find that all services are stopped

all stopped.png

Start All the Services

You can run

Start-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName | Format-Table

and start them all

start them all.png

The full text service was started with the engine service which is why it gave a warning. You can see this if you have all of the services stopped and just want to start the engine services with the type parameter.

Get-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName | Format-Table
Start-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -Type Engine
Get-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName | Format-Table
all stopped - start engine.png

If you just want to start the Agent services, you can use

Start-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -Type Agent

start agent.png

You can start just the services for one instance

Start-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -InstanceName MIRROR

start instance services.png

Stopping the services

Stopping the services works in the same way. Lets stop the MIRROR instance services we have just started. This will stop the services for an instance

Stop-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -InstanceName MIRROR

stopping instance services.png

We can stop them by type as well, although this will show an extra requirement. If we start our MIRROR instance services again and then try to stop just the engine type.

Start-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -InstanceName MIRROR | ft
Stop-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -Type Engine

cant stop.png

You will get a warning due to the dependant services

WARNING: [10:31:02][Update-ServiceStatus] (MSSQL$MIRROR on SQL0) The attempt to stop the service returned the following error: The service cannot be stopped because other services that are running are dependent on it.
WARNING: [10:31:02][Update-ServiceStatus] (MSSQL$MIRROR on SQL0) Run the command with ‘-Force’ switch to force the restart of a dependent SQL Agent

So all you have to do is use the force Luke (or whatever your name is!)

Stop-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -Type Engine -Force

Use the force.png

You can also stop the services for an entire host, again you will need the Force parameter.

Start-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName |ft
Stop-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -Force | ft

stop all of them.png

Restarting Services

It will come as no surprise by now to learn that Restart-DbaService follows the same pattern. It also has ComputerName, InstanceName and Type parameters like Get-DbaService, Start-DbaService and Stop-DbaService (Consistency is great, It’s one of the things that is being worked on towards 1.0 as you can see in the Bill of Health)

Again you will need the -Force for dependant services, you can restart all of the services on a host with

Restart-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -Force

restart tehm all.png

or just the services for an instance

Restart-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -InstanceName MIRROR -Force

restart instance.png

or just the Agent Services

Restart-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -Type Agent

restart agent.png

Doing a bit of coding

Now none of that answers @g-kannan’s question. Restarting only services with a certain service account.

With PowerShell you can pipe commands together so that the results of the first command are piped into the second. So we can get all of the engine services on a host for an instance with Get-DbaService and start them with Start-DbaService like this

Get-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -Type Engine | Start-DbaService

start.png

or get all of the engine services for an instance on a host and stop them

Get-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -Type Engine  -InstanceName Mirror| Stop-DbaService

stop one isntance.png

or maybe you want to get all of the service that have stopped

(Get-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -Type Engine).Where{$_.State -eq 'Stopped'}

stopped services.png

You can do the same thing with syntax that may make more sense to you if you are used to T-SQL as follows

(Get-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -Type Engine) | Where State -eq 'Stopped'

T SQL syntax powershell.png

and then start only those services you could do

(Get-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -Type Engine) | Where State -eq 'Stopped' | Start-DbaService

start the stopped ones.png

(note – you would just use Start-DbaService in this case as it wont start services that are already started!)

# Stop just one of the engine services
Stop-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -InstanceName MIRROR -Type Engine
# Get the engine services
Get-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -Type Engine
# This will only start the one engine service that is stopped
Start-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -Type Engine

only one service.png

Come On Rob! Answer the question!

So now that you know a lot more about these commands, you can restart only the services using a particular service account by using Get-DbaService to get the services

Get-DbaService -ComputerName $ComputerName -Type Engine | Where StartName -eq 'thebeard\sqlsvc'

Machine learning masters the fingerprint to fool biometric systems 

Fingerprint authentication systems are a widely trusted, ubiquitous form of biometric authentication, deployed on billions of smartphones and other devices worldwide. Yet a new study from Michigan State University and New York University reveals a surprising level of vulnerability in these systems.CSE Professor Arun Ross and colleagues have learned that partial fingerprint-based systems on smartphones can be compromised by using strategically created fake prints.

Using a neural network trained to synthesize human fingerprints, the research team evolved a fake fingerprint that could potentially fool a touch-based authentication system for up to one in five people. 

Much the way that a master key can unlock every door in a building, these “DeepMasterPrints” use artificial intelligence to match many prints stored in fingerprint databases and could thus theoretically unlock a large number of devices. 

The work builds on earlier research led by Nasir Memon, NYU computer scientist, and Arun Ross, Michigan State University professor of computer science and engineering. They coined the term “MasterPrint” to describe how partial fingerprint-based systems can be compromised by using strategically created fake prints. 

“As fingerprint sensors become smaller in size, it is imperative for the resolution of the sensor to be significantly improved for it to capture additional fingerprint features,” Ross said. “If resolution is not improved, the distinctiveness of a user’s fingerprint will be inevitably compromised. The empirical analysis conducted in this research clearly substantiates this.” 

Devices typically allow users to enroll several different finger images, and a match with any enrolled partial print is enough to confirm identity. Partial fingerprints are less likely to be unique than full prints, and their earlier research demonstrated that enough similarities exist between partial prints to create MasterPrints capable of matching many stored partials in a database. 

In the new study, doctoral student Philip Bontrager and computer scientist Julian Togelius from NYU along with their collaborators, including Memon and Ross, took this concept further, training a machine-learning algorithm to generate synthetic fingerprints as MasterPrints. The researchers created complete images of these synthetic fingerprints, a process that has twofold significance. First, it is yet another step toward assessing the viability of MasterPrints against real devices, which the researchers have yet to test; and second, because these images replicate the quality of fingerprint images stored in fingerprint-accessible systems, they could potentially be used to launch a brute force attack against a secure cache of these images. 

The new study was presented at the IEEE International Conference of Biometrics: Theory, Applications and Systems by Philip Bontrager, the first author of the paper. 

“These experiments demonstrate the need for multi-factor authentication and should be a wake-up call for device manufacturers about the implications of artificial fingerprint attacks,” Bontrager said. 

Use your fingerprint to unlock your smartphone? Can you trust it?This research has applications in fields beyond security. Togelius noted that their Latent Variable Evolution method used here to generate fingerprints can also be used to make designs in other industries – notably game development. The technique has already been used to generate new levels in popular video games. 

A National Science Foundation grant supported the work. The research team also includes postdoctoral fellow Aditi Roy, who was lead author for the original MasterPrint paper.

          Road categorisation - OpenStreetMap versus Flemish Planning Documents      Cache   Translate Page      

Intro

First of all, some background. I'm employed by a consultancy agency, and anything traffic/mobility related is part of my job. It should also imply I'm familiar with several planning documents...

When diving into the world that is OpenStreetMap, I've had to realize a few things. Things in OpenStreetMap do NOT always mean what I assume they mean. Road categorisation is one of the key points here, and frequent need to repeat the explanation has finally made me create a diary post on the subject. For clarification I'll try to explain in english, but add the corresponding terms in dutch after.

The problem

At the core of the issue is semantics. OpenStreetMap and 'the real world' but use certain terms, like 'primary roads', 'secondary roads', 'tertiary roads'. These are however not synonymous, and editing OpenStreetMap just to be in line with those planning documents is often well.. wrong.

The planning context

  • Primary roads ('primaire wegen') are selected in the RSV ('Ruimtelijk Structuurplan Vlaanderen', or 'spatial structural plan Flanders'). They deal with the connections between 'Grootstedelijke gebieden' - essentially the main metropoles. Think along the likes of Gent, Antwerpen, Brussel, Brugge, ...
  • Secondary roads ('secundaire wegen') are selected one planning level lower, at a provincial level. The PRS ('Provinciaal Ruimtelijk Structuurplan') selects these. They deal with the connections between regional poles.
  • Tertiary roads are not named as such, but fit under the umbrella of 'lokale wegen'. In planning documents, we speak of 'lokale wegen types I, II and III', where I and II are dealing with the connections between very local poles, and III is basically whatever didn't fit elsewhere'. Selection of these happens in the 'Gemeentelijke Mobiliteitsplan' ('communal mobility plan).

In addition, note that there's always multiple versions, where typically the 'I' version means connection between poles of a same scale, and the 'II' version means collecting traffic from a lower level. In an attempt to summarize, here's an attempt at graphical representation of the principles behind it: Summary of the road categorisation according to planning documents. (Based on courses by Joris Willems, as I was taught at Vives Kortrijk)

The OpenStreetMap way

I'll base the comparsion of the wiki page for the belgian conventions: wiki page

At first glance, the comparison still seems straightforward:

  • Hoofdwegen vs Motorway

  • Primaire wegen vs Primary

  • Secundaire wegen vs Secondary

  • Lokale wegen I & II vs Tertiary

  • Options to specify more clearly what 'lokale wegen III' are (paths, service roads, residential roads, ...)

... leaving only 'trunk' as the odd one out.

Upon digging in a bit deeper however, the criteria as described are detailed in part through relation with the road numbers.

What once started as a ideal world (N1-N9 connect province capitals with Brussels, Nx0 add on to those in a radial pattern, interconnection those), with Nxx turning those basic structures into a finer mesh based on local city distribution. Proper 'ringroads' around cities get an Rxx number, which lets you filter out those functions too. And where there's only 'partial ring roads' around smaller towns, the part that circles around gets the Nxx number, while the old downgraded trajectory (which hopefully got an ACTUAL downgrade in profile) gets a number like Nxxa or Nxxd, or any variation of the sorts.

That seems sensible enough to link it to the categorisation, regardless of what interpretation (OSM vs planning) is taken into account.

Intended use versus actual use

One of the key principles we adhere to when mapping is 'sticking to ground truth'. It's at times a sad realisation, but many roads have a lay-out, a certain 'look and feel', that leans more towards a different function then the actual intended use.

This inherently implies that for cases a road that should only give access to a small residential area (highway = residential, or a 'lokale weg III') actually has the appearance of a tertiary road, or that what should be a major axis in the traffic network has a rather underwhelming profile making it look and feel like a lower category..

We (the belgian community, and I'd assume by extension most communities) chose not to map according to 'vision documents', but to what we can see / survey in the field. Especially tertiary / secondary roads are subject to different interpretations between the two.

I still don't get the fuss - where does it actually differ?

Nothing like a good example to make a point. I've collected a few examples from my own region, as these were the cases that initially got me stumped.

The R32 - Ringroad around Roeselare

The R32, according to OSM logic, is a ring-road, with an Rxx number, and should therefor entirely be classified as 'primary' road all along the way. However, structural planning documents disagree: rather then seeing it as an actual 'ring-road' to divert traffic around the city, they see it as a 'traffic collecting road' towards the E403 - which 'collects' for example traffic from the northern branch of the N32 and the N36, then 'connects' those streams to a higher degree network...
The R32 This would imply it being a secondary road in the sections west of the N32, and primary between N32 and E403 both ways.. which is means the majority of the length is judged differently.

Meiboomlaan Roeselare

In OpenStreetMap you'll see Meiboomlaan in Roeselare marked as 'secondary'. It carries a number (N37), and it also looks like it's a road for a connection at a semi-high scale (watch it here ).

If we were to judge that road merely on planning documents alone, it is a 'lokale weg II', which boils down to a tertiary road...

In comparison, Hoogleedsesteenweg (connection to neighbouring town Hooglede) and Beversesteenweg (connection between Roeselare and part-community Beveren) which do form a connection between poles at a local level, do not exceed 'tertiary' status in OSM, largely due to a lack an N-number.... Somewhat ironical, within the limits of the so called 'Kleine Ring' (Westlaan - Noordlaan - Brugsesteenweg - Koning Leopold III-laan - Mandellaan - Kaaistraat - Koning Albert I-laan), having or not having an N-number doesn't mean all that much - these roads are now owned and maintained by the city of Roeselare.

But my choice is the better one!

Err.. maybe it is, maybe it's not. We need some common ground to determine how we tag things, and obtain a database (plus a rendered map) that fits as close to reality as we can get it. Sure, given the very very very similar structure and terminology it's easy to get carried away and 'straighten out this mess'. Believe me, I've been there. But I'm used to thinking in 'planning' and 'networks' and the theoretical part of how we'd like things to have. But untill that day, we should map things as they are.

You didn't mention Living Streets, School Streets, Cyclestreets, ...'

You're absolutely right, I didn't. These are all subcategories of what we'd call 'Lokale wegen III', and by default, OSM has a lot more flexibility to classify what's what. You'll never get overruled on these purely based on what's in any sort of planning document. I took the liberty of considering these out of the scope of this diary post.

Kutengeneza Ramani

  • Kwa mujibu wa tweet, Pascal Neis amesasisha ramani yake ya Unmapped Places. Inaelezea makazi mbali na njia kubwa za trafiki. Hata hivyo, makosa ya kutambulisha pia yalipatikana katika nchi zilizotengenezewa ramani vizuri.

  • Stefano Maffulli anapendekeza emergency=fire_alarm_box katika orodha ya barua pepe kwa "kifaa kilichowekwa kwenye ardhi ya umma kutumika kwa taarifa ya idara ya moto ya moto".

  • Toni Erdmann aliripoti kuhusu zana mpya ya kuthibitisha ubora wa uchambuzi (QA): PTNA (Public Transport Network Analysis) katika orodha ya barua pepe (tafsiri ya moja kwa moja) na katika jukwaa (tafsiri ya moja kwa moja).

  • Makala yenye mada Finding Missing Roads in the Philippines ya Gowin inaelezea kazi yake na njia mpya ya kuthibitisha barabara tovu il kukamilisha barabara nchini Filipino.

  • Zana ya kuthibitisha ubora wa anwani OSMSuspects ya dooley sasa inapatikana kwa watumiaji wote tena. Ukiingia na akaunti yako ya OSM, unaweza kuona metadata.

  • Leif Rasmussen alipendekeza kuongeza ratiba ya usafiri katika OSM katika pendekezo. Kama ilivyovyotarajiwa, watu wengi hawakukubaliana na kuongeza ratiba katika maelezo yao kamili na ya kina.Ni kiasi kikubwa cha data, ambacho hubadilika mara nyingi. Itakuwa daima katika mtindo wa kizamani hivyo vigumu kutegemea.

  • Simon Poole hakubaliani na mazoezi ya sasa ya kugawanya vitambulisho kama languages=<code>;<code>;<code> na language:<code1>=yes + language:<code2>=yes. Anaona kuwa hii inafanya kuwa vigumu kwa watumiaji wa data na waandishi wa mhariri.

Jamii

  • Opencagedata.com imechapisha mahojiano na Russ Garrett wa OpenInfraMap.org. Russ, aliyekutana na Steve Coast katika baa mwaka 2005, anaongoza mradi wa OpenInfraMap.

  • Mshiriki wa kikundi cha kazi cha data mavl, aliripoti katika blogu yake kuhusu ujumbe za kwanza 1000 ambazo zimepokelewa kutoka kwa zana mpya ya kutoa taarifa ya openstreetmap.org. Karibu asilimia 60 ya taarifa hizo zilikuwa zinahusu watumiaji, ikifuatwa na maelezo ya OSM. Bila kujali kitu cha wasiwasi, sababu kuu ya ripoti ilikuwa spam

Taasisi ya OpenStreetMap

  • Frederik Ramm, mshirika wa bodi ya OSMF na mfadhili wa OSMF, aliripoti kuhusu uvumi wa makampuni mawili ambayo hayajajulikana ambayo "yanahamasisha" wafanyakazi wao kujiunga na OSMF,na kuwapa mapendekezo ya uchaguzi na kulipa ada ya uanachama.

  • Rory McCann anaeleza katika orodha ya barua pepe ya OSMF jinsi mwajiri anaweza waambia wafanyakazi wale ambao wanapaswa kupigia kura na jinsi hii inaweza kuthibitishwa licha ya "haijulikani" uchapisho wa kura.

  • Tunajiunga na Michael Reichert na wito wa watu wengine kuwa mwanachama wa OSMF. Mjumbe wa bodi tu anaweza kuhakikisha kwamba bodi ya OSMF itatenda daima kwa maslahi ya watengenezaji wa ramani. Ikiwa unataka kupiga kura katika uchaguzi wa mwaka huu,unapaswa kujiunga kabla ya Novemba 15. Aidha, karibu vikundi vyote vya kazi vya OSMF vinatafuta msaada.

  • OSMF imekuwa ikifanya kazi katika kurekebisha OpenStreetMap API (Rails Port and CGIMap) ili kuzingatia Kanuni ya Ulinzi ya Takwimu Mkuu na imetangaza ombi la zabuni kala ya 15 Novemba.

Matukio

  • Mkutano wa tatu wa State of the Map Czech utafanyika mnamo tarehe 17 hadi 18 mwezi wa Novemba 2018 katika mjii wa Brno.

OSM ya Kibinadamu

  • Shirika la Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Erasmus+ wanafunzi walitangaza katika tweet, kwamba walikuwa wameendesha kozi ya wiki-mrefu inayoitwa kufundisha walimu. Mpango huo ulikuwa na wigo mpana na mada ikiwamo kutengeneza ramani, programu ya Overpass, OSM Wiki, njia za mawasiliano na mengine. Mpango huu umeonyesha uwezekano wa OSM kwa majibu ya kibinadamu na msaada wa maendeleo ya kiuchumi na kupainia viongozi (ambao ni waenye hiari) .

  • HOT inahitaji usaidizi juu ya wiki chache zinazofuata, kutambua idadi ya wakimbizi wa Venezuela walio katika kisiwa cha Aruba.

  • Shirika la Humanitarian OpenStreetMap Team imemaliza kutengeneza ramani ya miundombinu, hasa majengo, barabara, na vipengele vya maji huko Semarang, mji mkuu wa tano wa Indonesia.

There are dozens of free "peoplefinder" sites that buy up commercial databases and combine them with other sources to make your home address searchable. You can find instances where this has happened to you by googling your name and home address, and then you can google the removal forms for each of the services and get yourself delisted. But your name will keep getting re-added: if you set a Google Alert for a search on your name and address, you'll get a message ever time you get caught in these databases and you can remove your name again. This won't work on the for-pay background check sites that Google doesn't index, but it will keep your name and address clear of low-level scumbags who stick with free sites for their doxing activities.

           Comment on IMF: The case for a new digital currency by K. Chris C.       Cache   Translate Page      
"Digital," or "blockchain," "money" is just another Khazarian scam--part of their grift-machine. The people of the Liberty Dollar were persecuted, robbed, and caged for the audacity of minting a precious metal substitute to the Khazarians' fiat-grift. In contrast, the "blockchain money" substitute appeared with a strange and unproven pedigree, and has been embraced by Khazarian controlled governments instead of oppressed--a sure sign that the fix is in. And "blockchain money" is currently decentralized, but is can easily be centralized. There are already calls to do just that under the guise that the size of the transaction ledger is growing too large and too fast. "Blockchain money" is the fourth fence piece. Use it, play with it, but don't be surprised when you find a barred gate where it was once open. A good primer on technology of "blockchain money" is: "Blockchain-Blueprint for a New Economy" by Melanie Swan One is not a true American until resident in the ADL's database.

Evolving Trends in Insurance Coverage of Vascular Surgery Patients in Academic Practice.

Ann Vasc Surg. 2018 Nov 27;:

Authors: Dua A, Rothenberg K, Srivastava G, Brown K, Lewis B, Rossi P, Seabrook G, Malinowski M, Wohlauer M, Lee CJ

Abstract
OBJECTIVES: Insurance coverage of vascular surgery patients may differ from patients with less chronic surgical pathologies. The goal of this study is to identify trends in insurance status of vascular surgery patients over the last 10 years at a busy academic center.
METHODS: All consecutive patient visits for a vascular procedure from 2006 to 2016 were retrospectively reviewed from a prospectively collected institutional database. Data points included insurance status, procedures performed, and date of admission. Insurance status was categorized as Medicare, Medicaid, and uninsured. Samples were divided between 2006-2009 and 2011-2016 for comparison. Unpaired t-test, Chi-square and regression analysis were used to determine significant trends over the study period.
RESULTS: From 2006-2016, 6007 vascular surgery procedures were performed. Procedure volume increased significantly from 1309 to 4698 between the two timeframes (p<0.05), while the percentage of Medicaid and Medicare patients trended upward but did not achieve significance. There was a significant decrease in the percentage of uninsured patients between the cohorts (5.65% vs. 2.96%, p<0.05). In 2012, 10.14% of patients were uninsured, compared to 2.56% in 2016 (p<.05).
CONCLUSIONS: Insurance status affects access to care and subsequent outcomes. In our busy academic center, insurance coverage for vascular surgery has significantly increased over the past decade. The number of Medicaid and Medicare patients has slowly increased, but a significant and continuing decline in uninsured patients was observed. Implementation of the Affordable Care Act during this time period may have played a role in providing coverage for patient needing vascular surgery.

          Rumor | Warner Games trabalha em quatro projetos, incluindo um jogo da Mulher-Maravilha      Cache   Translate Page      

Não é novidade para ninguém que a Warner Games está trabalhando em algo grande, mas um vazamento recente nos indica que o estúdio desenvolve quatro projetos de uma só vez.

Usuários do ResetEra encontraram no SAG's Production Database, rum site que armazena informações de outros campos, registros de games em produção e alguns que já foram desenvolvido pela WB Games.

Entre eles está "Project Zeppelin", codinome dado a Batman Arkham Knight. Nos mais recentes, há também "Project Scribblenauts Fiesta"; "Saturn"; "Phoenix" e o mais interessante de todos: "Project Diana".




Se você entende o mínimo da DC, deve saber que Diana é o nome da Mulher-Maravilha, indicando que um game da heroína está em produção. O projeto começou a ser desenvolvido em 2017, e todos os outros começaram em alguma momento de 2018.

Há alguns dias, um vazamento proveniente do 4Chan revela que a WB Montreal estava por trás de um jogo chamado "Mulher-Maravilha: Círculo da Luz", com lançamento marcado para 8 de outubro de 2019 e chegando ao Xbox One, PS4 e PC.

O jogo seria um RPG de ação ambientado nos tempos modernos. Haveriam dois mapas para serem explorados: Temiscera e Gateway City. O game é um mundo aberto sem loadings, o qual o jogador pode ir para qualquer uma das duas localidades usando portais. A maioria dos ambientes é destrutível. 

A história gira em torno da Mulher Maravilha que busca impedir Circe de se libertar de Hades e partir a "Source Wall" para reescrever a história. A história das Amazonas e Circe foi levemente retrabalhada na narrativa. Circe tem um culto que está ajudando-a a alcançar seus objetivos, tanto em Gateway quanto em Temiscera.

Há uma grande quantidade de vilões da protagonista e outros relacionados a diferentes heróis, como o Sr. Frio, que é o vilão mostrado no trailer de anúncio.

A jogabilidade é uma mistura entre o combate da franquia Arkham e o do novo Assassin's Creed. Há a possibilidade de realizar vários combos, e a protagonista conseguiria voar usando o botão de pulo.

No jogo, poderemos customizar o laço, espada, armadura e manoplas de Diana. Além de adquirir um arco e flecho durante sua jornada, também mostrados no trailer.

Diferentes trajes para a heroína poderão desbloqueados ao decorrer da campanha.

Por fim, o anúncio seria realizado no The Game Awards, e posteriormente a IGN iria divulgar um gameplay exclusivo. 

É importante salientar que tudo não passa de especulação.

          10 Amazing Foods From Gastro Obscura's First Year      Cache   Translate Page      

It's been a year since we launched Gastro Obscura, a guide to the world's most wondrous food and drink. To mark this milestone, we’ve looked back at the 1,000 foods we've added to our database, picking out some of the most amazing entries in different categories. We also reviewed data from our readers, who, for the past year, have been marking which foods they have tried or want to try. It revealed some bests of the best.

Most Desired Food: Peanut Butter Fruit

article-image

Out of the more than 1,000 entries in our foods database, readers wanted to try peanut butter fruit the most. Although it might look a bit like a grape tomato, this Andean fruit has a smooth, dense pulp with a nutty flavor that has undertones of berry and sweet potato. Native to Peru, Bolivia, Venezuela, Colombia, and Ecuador, it can be eaten raw or blended into milkshakes or pastries. Some chefs even transform it into a jam, making for an all-in-one PB&J spread.

Most Desired, Yet Elusive Food: Threads of God

article-image

Twice a year, pilgrims in Sardinia walk 20 miles from the city of Nuoro to the village of Lula. They are celebrating the Feast of San Francesco, and when they reach their destination they will be rewarded with the rarest pasta in the world. Also known as su filindeu, Threads of God are intricate, painstakingly pulled noodles that only three women on Earth can make. So it’s not surprising that the pasta has proved the most desired, yet elusive food in Gastro Obscura’s database: It has the greatest discrepancy between readers who want to try it and those who actually have had the pleasure.

While the ingredients list is simple—semolina wheat, water, salt—making Threads of God is a delicate process of working the dough into rounded strands and doubling, doubling, doubling until reaching some 250+ strands without breaking. After drying in the sun, the noodles are commonly served with a simple mutton broth and sprinkling of pecorino cheese.

Most Desired Decadence: Lapis Legit

article-image

Out of all the pastries, puddings, and pies we’ve covered in the past year, this Dutch-Indonesian dessert takes the cake. Lapis legit, Gastro Obscura’s most desired sweet, consists of 18 to 30 individually baked layers of spiced butter, sugar, and egg yolk, sometimes in a variety of colors. The decadent stack combines elements of German baumkuchen, a spit-roasted cake that Dutch colonists brought to Indonesia in the 15th century, with local Indonesian spices such as cinnamon, clove, mace, and nutmeg. To achieve the layers, bakers swapped out the traditional spit for a pan and broiled each layer before adding the next. Today, you can track down the delicate delicacy in Indonesia or the Netherlands (where it’s also known as spekkoek).

Most Surprisingly Explosive Food: Chocolate Teacakes

article-image

Our foods database contains quite a few pyrotechnic delights, but when it comes to surprisingly explosive food, unassuming chocolate teacakes take the top prize. In 1953, members of England’s Royal Air Force made an interesting discovery about the teacakes in their ration packs: With increases in altitude, the marshmallow inside the cakes expanded and, at 15,000 feet, it cracked the chocolate shell. It wasn’t long before pilots started conducting what one veteran called “rather unscientific in-flight experiments” with their snacks.

It was all fun and games until the teacake explosion. During the summer of 1965, a captain and student pilot forgot they had placed several unwrapped treats above their instrument panels. After the captain performed an emergency depressurizing switch, the treats exploded, scattering chocolate shrapnel and marshmallow across the windshield, flight controls, and the mens’ uniforms. Afterward, the RAF banned marshmallows from flights. Although it’s never been officially confirmed, most people suspect the teacakes in question were Tunnock's.

Most Artistic Food: Tibetan Buddhist Butter Sculptures

article-image

From radish sculpture contests to parades with giant floats made entirely of citrus, food makes a fantastic medium for creative expression beyond the kitchen. Stunning, ephemeral, and sometimes painstakingly detailed, Tibetan Buddhist butter sculptures might be the finest example of food art. To make the sculptures, monks and nuns shape yak butter—which also fuels lamps in Buddhist temples—by hand and dye it with mineral pigments to form flowers, animals, and symbols. The sculptures are a crucial element of the New Year’s Butter Lamp Festival in Tibet, when the streets are filled with flickering butter lamps and beautiful butter-based art. But, like most food, this wonder doesn't last forever. At some point, the makers melt their masterpieces or feed them to animals.

Spiciest Food: Death Noodles

article-image

When in Jakarta, you’d be hard-pressed to find a warung, a late-night, hole-in-the-wall food stall, that didn’t sell some version of Indomie noodles. But only one establishment serves up a version so spicy, it’s earned the nickname “death noodles.” The dish is covered in 100 to 150 ground-up bird’s eye chilies. On the Scoville scale, which ranks spiciness, a single bird’s eye chili is 100,000 units, which is hot, but nothing warranting a death moniker. However, when crushed and combined, the 100 to 150 peppers in death noodles can add up to a scorching Scoville rating of 20 million. Just how hot is that? One British chef claims to have temporarily lost his hearing after eating the dish.

Most Creative Use of Leftovers: Kartoshka

article-image

During food shortages in the USSR, no crumb went to waste. Thrifty chefs used sgushyonka, a sweetened condensed milk, to deliciously glue bits of leftover cake, cookies, or bread together to form new desserts. Kartoshka was one such dessert. Meaning “potato” in Russian, the crumb collage gets shaped into a little tuber and coated in cocoa powder for a final flourish. Now that cafeterias tend to have more ingredients to spare, the treats sometimes get a splash of cognac or rum and a bit of frosting.

Deadliest Catch: Mad Honey

In Nepal, men scale steep cliffs on rope ladders and dodge stings from giant bees in the hopes of collecting a sweet and powerful prize: hallucinogenic honey.

It might be tempting to say mad honey’s intimidating reputation comes from its psychedelic properties (bees produce it when they feed on the nectar of rhododendrons that contain a neurotoxin), but the most dangerous aspect of this food is the act of harvesting it. As the bees nest on cliffs, honey hunters must try to extract pieces of the hive while dangling hundreds of feet in the air. The insects also happen to be the largest honeybees in the world.

Most Controversial Food: Peanut Butter & Mayonnaise Sandwich

The peanut butter and mayonnaise sandwich started innocently enough. During the Great Depression, cheap, filling foods played an integral role in Americans’ lives. One particularly beloved combo of protein and fat was the peanut butter and mayonnaise sandwich. Though the sandwich remained popular in the South throughout the decades following the Depression, it’s since faded into obscurity. When we published an entry on it, the sandwich had a polarizing effect on our readers. Some cried sacrilege over the unconventional combo. However, many readers remembered the sandwich with nostalgic fondness, chiming in with other toppings their families added to the PB&M, including lettuce, bacon, and bananas. One reader had thought the PB&M was something only her grandmother made: "I thought I was the only one. I have mayo mates!”

Oldest Food: The Speyer Wine Bottle

article-image

The oldest wine in the world is nearly 1,700 years old. Unearthed from a couple’s tomb in what is now Speyer, Germany, the Speyer wine bottle houses a dark, resin-like mass and cloudy liquid. And just how did this liquid keep while other ancient tipples evaporated? Historians point to a solid wax seal and significant portion of olive oil in the wine, which helped further seal the liquid off from air. You can still see the wine bottle at Speyer's Historical Museum of the Palatinate. Researchers even say that it’s probably still safe to drink, but museum curators aren’t taking any chances cracking the ancient seal.

          Solving Problems with Data Science      Cache   Translate Page      

A challenge that I’ve been wrestling with is the lack of a widely populated framework or systematic approach to solving data science problems. In our analytics work at Viget, we use a framework inspired by Avinash Kaushik’s Digital Marketing and Measurement Model. We use this framework on almost every project we undertake at Viget. I believe data science could use a similar framework that organizes and structures the data science process.

As a start, I want to share the questions we like to ask when solving a data science problem. Even though some of the questions are not specific to the data science domain, they help us efficiently and effectively solve problems with data science.

Business Problem

What is the problem we are trying to solve?

That’s the most logical first step to solving any question, right? We have to be able to articulate exactly what the issue is. Start by writing down the problem without going into the specifics, such as how the data is structured or which algorithm we think could effectively solve the problem.

Then try explaining the problem to your niece or nephew, who is a freshman in high school. It is easier than explaining the problem to a third-grader, but you still can’t dive into statistical uncertainty or convolutional versus recurrent neural networks. The act of explaining the problem at a high school stats and computer science level makes your problem, and the solution, accessible to everyone within your or your client’s organization, from the junior data scientists to the Chief Legal Officer.

Clearly defining our business problem showcases how data science is used to solve real-world problems. This high-level thinking provides us with a foundation for solving the problem. Here are a few other business problem definitions we should think about.

  • Who are the stakeholders for this project?
  • Have we solved similar problems before?
  • Has someone else documented solutions to similar problems?
  • Can we reframe the problem in any way?

And don’t be fooled by these deceivingly simple questions. Sometimes more generalized questions can be very difficult to answer. But, we believe answering these framing question is the first, and possibly most important, step in the process, because it makes the rest of the effort actionable.  

Example

Say we work at a video game company —  let’s call the company Rocinante. Our business is built on customers subscribing to our massive online multiplayer game. Users are billed monthly. We have data about users who have cancelled their subscription and those who have continued to renew month after month. Our management team wants us to analyze our customer data.

What is the problem we are trying to solve?

Well, as a company, the Rocinante wants to be able to predict whether or not customers will cancel their subscription. We want to be able to predict which customers will churn, in order to address the core reasons why customers unsubscribe. Additionally, we need a plan to target specific customers with more proactive retention strategies.

Churn is the turnover of customers, also referred to as customer death. In a contractual setting - such as when a user signs a contract to join a gym - a customer “dies” when they cancel their gym membership. In a non-contractual setting, customer death is not observed and is more difficult to model. For example, Amazon does not know when you have decided to never-again purchase Adidas. Your customer death as an Amazon or Adidas customer is implied.

Possible Solutions

What are the approaches we can use to solve this problem?

There are many instances when we shouldn’t be using machine learning to solve a problem. Remember, data science is one of many tools in the toolbox. There could be a simpler, and maybe cheaper, solution out there. Maybe we could answer a question by looking at descriptive statistics around web analytics data from Google Analytics. Maybe we could solve the problem with user interviews and hear what the users think in their own words. This question aims to see if spinning up EC2 instances on Amazon Web Services is worth it. If the answer to, “Is there a simple solution,” is, “No,” then we can ask, “Can we use data science to solve this problem?” This yes or no question brings about two follow-up questions:

  1. Is the data available to solve this problem?” A data scientist without data is not a very helpful individual. Many of the data science techniques that are highlighted in media today — such as deep learning with artificial neural networks — requires a massive amount of data. A hundred data points is unlikely to provide enough data to train and test a model. If the answer to this question is no, then we can consider acquiring more data and pipelining that data to warehouses, where it can be accessed at a later date.
  2. Who are the team members we need in order to solve this problem?” Your initial answer to this question will be, “The data scientist, of course!” The vast majority of the problems we face at Viget can’t or shouldn’t be solved by a lone data scientist because we are solving business problems. Our data scientists team up with UXers, designers, developers, project managers, and hardware developers to develop digital strategies and solving data science problems is one part of that strategy. Siloing your problem and siloing your data scientists isn’t helpful for anyone.

Example

We want to predict when a customer will unsubscribe from Rocinante’s flagship game. One simple approach to solving this problem would be to take the average customer life - how long a gamer remains subscribed - and predict that all customers will churn after X amount of time. Say our data showed that on average customers churned after 72 months of subscription. Then we could predict a new customer would churn after 72 months of subscription. We test out this hypothesis on new data and learn that it is wildly inaccurate. The average customer lifetime for our previous data was 72 months, but our new batch of data had an average customer lifetime of 2 months. Users in the second batch of data churned much faster than those in the first batch. Our prediction of 72 months didn’t generalize well. Let’s try a more sophisticated approach using data science.

  1. Is the data available to solve this problem? The dataset contains 12,043 rows of data and 49 features. We determine that this sample of data is large enough for our use-case. We don’t need to deploy Rocinante’s data engineering team for this project.
  2. Who are the team members we need in order to solve this problem?  Let’s talk with the Rocinante’s data engineering team to learn more about their data collection process. We could learn about biases in the data from the data collectors themselves. Let’s also chat with the customer retention and acquisitions team and hear about their tactics to reduce churn. Our job is to analyze data that will ultimately impact their work. Our project team will consist of the data scientist to lead the analysis, a project manager to keep the project team on task, and a UX designer to help facilitate research efforts we plan to conduct before and after the data analysis.

Evaluation

How do we know if we have successfully solved the problem?

At Viget, we aim to be data-informed, which means we aren’t blindly driven by our data, but we are still focused on quantifiable measures of success. Our data science problems are held to the same standard. What are the ways in which this problem could be a success? What are the ways in which this problem could be a complete and utter failure? We often have specific success metrics and Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that help us answer these questions.

Example

Our UX coworker has interviewed some of the other stakeholders at Rocinante and some of the gamers who play our game. Our team believes if our analysis is inconclusive, and we continue the status quo, the project would be a failure. The project would be a success if we are able to predict a churn risk score for each subscriber. A churn risk score, coupled with our monthly churn rate (the rate at which customers leave the subscription service per month), will be useful information. The customer acquisition team will have a better idea of how many new users they need to acquire in order to keep the number of customers the same, and how many new users they need in order to grow the customer base. 

Data Science-ing

What do we need to learn about the data and what analysis do we need to conduct?

At the heart of solving a data science problem are hundreds of questions. I attempted to ask these and similar questions last year in a blog post, Data Science Workflow. Below are some of the most crucial — they’re not the only questions you could face when solving a data science problem, but are ones that our team at Viget thinks about on nearly every data problem.

  1. What do we need to learn about the data?
  2. What type of exploratory data analysis do we need to conduct?
  3. Where is our data coming from?
  4. What is the current state of our data?
  5. Is this a supervised or unsupervised learning problem?
  6. Is this a regression, classification, or clustering problem?
  7. What biases could our data contain?
  8. What type of data cleaning do we need to do?
  9. What type of feature engineering could be useful?
  10. What algorithms or types of models have been proven to solve similar problems well?
  11. What evaluation metric are we using for our model?
  12. What is our training and testing plan?
  13. How can we tweak the model to make it more accurate, increase the ROC/AUC, decrease log-loss, etc. ?
  14. Have we optimized the various parameters of the algorithm? Try grid search here.
  15. Is this ethical?

That last question raises the conversation about ethics in data science. Unfortunately, there is no hippocratic oath for data scientists, but that doesn’t excuse the data science industry from acting unethically. We should apply ethical considerations to our standard data science workflow. Additionally, ethics in data science as a topic deserves more than a paragraph in this article — but I wanted to highlight that we should be cognizant and practice only ethical data science.

Example

Let’s get started with the analysis. It’s  time to answer the data science questions. Because this is an example, the answer to these data science questions are entirely hypothetical.

  1. We need to learn more about the time series nature of our data, as well as the format.
  2. We should look into average customer lifetime durations and summary statistics around some of the features we believe could be important.
  3. Our data came from login data and customer data, compiled by Rocinante’s data engineering team.
  4. The data needs to be cleaned, but it is conveniently in a PostgreSQL database.
  5. This is a supervised learning problem because we know which customers have churned.
  6. This is a binary classification problem.
  7. After conducting exploratory data analysis and speaking with the data engineering team, we do not see any biases in the data.
  8. We need to reformat some of the data and use missing data imputation for features we believe are important but have some missing data points.
  9. With 49 good features, we don’t believe we need to do any feature engineering.
  10. We have used random forests, XGBoost, and standard logistic regressions to solve classification problems.
  11. We will use ROC-AUC score as our evaluation metric.
  12. We are going to use a training-test split (80% training, 20% test) to evaluate our model.
  13. Let’s remove features that are statistically insignificant from our model to improve the ROC-AUC score.
  14. Let’s optimize the parameters within our random forests model to improve the ROC-AUC score.
  15. Our team believes we are acting ethically.

This process may look deceivingly linear, but data science is often a nonlinear practice. After doing all of the work in our example above, we could still end up with a model that doesn’t generalize well. It could be bad at predicting churn in new customers. Maybe we shouldn’t have assumed this problem was a binary classification problem and instead used survival regression to solve the problem. This part of the project will be filled with experimentation, and that’s totally normal.

Communication

What is the best way to communicated and circulate our results?

Our job is typically to bring our findings to the client, explain how the process was a success or failure, and explain why. Communicating technical details and explaining to non-technical audiences is important because not all of our clients have degrees in statistics.  There are three ways in which communication of technical details can be advantageous:

  • It can be used to inspire confidence that the work is thorough and multiple options have been considered.
  • It can highlight technical considerations or caveats that stakeholders and decision-makers should be aware of.  
  • It can offer resources to learn more about specific techniques applied.
  • It can provide supplemental materials to allow the findings to be replicated where possible.

We often use blog posts and articles to circulate our work. They help spread our knowledge and the lessons we learned while working on a project to peers. I encourage every data scientist to engage with the data science community by attending and speaking at meetups and conferences, publishing their work online, and extending a helping hand to other curious data scientists and analysts.

Example

Our method of binary classification was in fact incorrect, so we ended up using survival regression to determine there are four features that impact churn: gaming platform, geographical region, days since last update, and season. Our team aggregates all of our findings into one report, detailing the specific techniques we used, caveats about the analysis, and the multiple recommendations from our team to the customer retention and acquisition team. This report is full of the nitty-gritty details that the more technical folks, such as the data engineering team, may appreciate. Our team also creates a slide deck for the less-technical audience. This deck glosses over many of the technical details of the project and focuses on recommendations for the customer retention and acquisition team.

We give a talk at a local data science meetup, going over the trials, tribulations, and triumphs of the project and sharing them with the data science community at large.

Why?

Why are we doing all of this?

I ask myself this question daily — and not in the metaphysical sense, but in the value-driven sense. Is there value in the work we have done and in the end result? I hope the answer is yes. But, let’s be honest, this is business. We don’t have three years to put together a PhD thesis-like paper. We have to move quickly and cost-effectively. Critically evaluating the value ultimately created will help you refine your approach to the next project. And, if you didn’t produce the value you’d originally hoped, then at the very least, I hope you were able to learn something and sharpen your data science skills. 

Example

Rocinante has a better idea of how long our users will remain active on the platform based on user characteristics, and can now launch preemptive strikes in order to retain those users who look like they are about to churn. Our team eventually develops a system that alerts the customer retention and acquisition team when a user may be about to churn, and they know to reach out to that user, via email, encouraging them to try out a new feature we recently launched. Rocinante is making better data-informed decisions based on this work, and that’s great!

Conclusion

I hope this article will help guide your next data science project and get the wheels turning in your own mind. Maybe you will be the creator of a data science framework the world adopts! Let me know what you think about the questions, or whether I’m missing anything, in the comments below.

          How to Create and Verify JWTs with Node      Cache   Translate Page      

This article was originally published on the Okta developer blog. Thank you for supporting the partners who make SitePoint possible.

Authentication on the internet has evolved quite a bit over the years. There are many ways to do it, but what worked well enough in the 90s doesn’t quite cut it today. In this tutorial, I’ll briefly cover some older, simpler forms of authentication, then show you how a more modern and more secure approach. By the end of this post, you’ll be able to create and verify JWTs yourself in Node. I’ll also show you how you can leverage Okta to do it all for you behind the scenes.

Traditionally, the simplest way to do authorization is with a username and password. This is called Basic Authorization and is done by just sending username:password as an encoded string that can be decoded by anybody looking. You could think of that string as a “token”. The problem is, you’re sending your password with every request. You could also send your username and password a single time, and let the server create a session ID for you. The client would then send that ID along with every request instead of a username and password. This method works as well, but it can be a hassle for the client to store and maintain sessions, especially for large sets of users.

The third method for managing authorization is via JSON Web Tokens, or JWTs. JWTs have become the de facto standard over the last few years. A JWT makes a set of claims, (e.g. “I’m Abe Froman, the Sausage King of Chicago”) that can be verified. Like Basic Authorization, the claims can be read by anybody. Unlike Basic Auth, however, you wouldn’t be sharing your password with anyone listening in. Instead, it’s all about trust.

Trust, but Verify… Your JWTs

it must be true

OK, maybe don’t believe everything you read on the internet. You might be wondering how someone can just make some claims and expect the server to believe them. When you make a claim using a JWT, it’s signed off by a server that has a secret key. The server reading the key can easily verify that the claim is valid, even without knowing the secret that was used. However, it would be nearly impossible for someone to modify the claims and make sure the signature was valid without having access to that secret key.

Why Use a JWT?

Using a JWT allows a server to offload authentication to a 3rd party they trust. As long as you trust the 3rd party, you can let them ensure that the user is who they say they are. That 3rd party will then create a JWT to be passed to your server, with whatever information is necessary. Typically this includes at least the user’s user id (standardly referred to as sub for “subject”), the “issuer” (iss) of the token, and the “expiration time” (exp). There are quite a few standardized claims, but you can really put any JSON you want in a claim. Just remember the more info you include, the longer the token will be.

Build a Simple Node App

To create and verify your own JWTs, you’ll first need to set up a Node server (well, you don’t have to, but that’s what I’ll be teaching you today). To get started, run the following commands to set up a new project:

mkdir fun-with-jwts
cd fun-with-jwts
npm init -y
npm install express@4.16.4
npm install -D nodemon@1.18.6

Next, create a new file index.js that will contain a super simple node server. There are three endpoints in here, that are just stubbed with TODOs as notes for what to implement.

The /create endpoint will require basic authorization to log you in. If you were writing a real OAuth server, you would probably use something other than Basic Auth. You would also need to look up the user in a database and make sure they provided the right password. To keep things simple for the demo, I’ve just hard-coded a single username and password here, so we can focus on the JWT functionality.

The /verify endpoint takes a JWT as a parameter to be decoded.

const express = require('express')
const app = express()
const port = process.env.PORT || 3000

app.get('/create', (req, res) => {
  if (req.headers.authorization !== 'Basic QXp1cmVEaWFtb25kOmh1bnRlcjI=') {
    res.set('WWW-Authenticate', 'Basic realm="401"')
    res.status(401).send('Try user: AzureDiamond, password: hunter2')
    return
  }

  res.send('TODO: create a JWT')
})

app.get('/verify/:token', (req, res) => {
  res.send(`TODO: verify this JWT: ${req.params.token}`)
})

app.get('/', (req, res) => res.send('TODO: use Okta for auth'))

app.listen(port, () => console.log(`JWT server listening on port ${port}!`))

You can now run the server by typing node_modules/.bin/nodemon .. This will start a server on port 3000 and will restart automatically as you make changes to your source code. You can access it by going to http://localhost:3000 in your browser. To hit the different endpoints, you’ll need to change the URL to http://localhost:3000/create or http://localhost:3000/verify/asdf. If you prefer to work in the command line, you can use curl to hit all those endpoints:

$ curl localhost:3000
TODO: use Okta for auth

$ curl localhost:3000/create
Try user: AzureDiamond, password: hunter2

$ curl AzureDiamond:hunter2@localhost:3000/create
TODO: create a JWT

$ curl localhost:3000/verify/asdf
TODO: verify this JWT: asdf

Create JSON Web Tokens in Your Node App

A JSON Web Token has three parts. The header, the payload, and the signature, separated by .s.

The header is a base64 encoded JSON object specifying which algorithm to use and the type of the token.

The payload is also a base64 encoded JSON object containing pretty much anything you want. Typically it will at least contain an expiration timestamp and some identifying information.

The signature hashes the header, the payload, and a secret key together using the algorithm specified in the header.

There are a number of tools out there to create JWTs for various languages. For Node, one simple one is njwt. To add it to your project, run

npm install njwt@0.4.0

Now replace the res.send('TODO: create a JWT') line in index.js with the following:

  const jwt = require('njwt')
  const claims = { iss: 'fun-with-jwts', sub: 'AzureDiamond' }
  const token = jwt.create(claims, 'top-secret-phrase')
  token.setExpiration(new Date().getTime() + 60*1000)
  res.send(token.compact())

Feel free to mess around with the payload. With the setExpiration() function above, the token will expire in one minute, which will let you see what happens when it expires, without having to wait too long.

To test this out and get a token, log in via the /create endpoint. Again, you can go to your browser at http://localhost:3000/create, or use curl:

$ curl AzureDiamond:hunter2@localhost:3000/create
eyJhbGciOiJIUzI1NiIsInR5cCI6IkpXVCJ9.eyJoZWxsbyI6IndvcmxkISIsIm51bWJlciI6MC41MzgyNzE0MTk3Nzg5NDc4LCJpYXQiOjE1NDIxMDQ0NDgsImV4cCI6MTU0MjEwNDUwOCwiaXNzIjoiZnVuLXdpdGgtand0cyIsInN1YiI6IkF6dXJlRGlhbW9uZCJ9.LRVmeIzAYk5WbDoKfSTYwPx5iW0omuB76Qud-xR8We4

Verify JSON Web Tokens in Your Node App

Well, that looks a bit like gibberish. You can see there are two .s in the JWT, separating the header, payload, and signature, but it’s not human readable. The next step is to write something to decode that string into something that makes a little more legible.

Replace the line containing TODO: verify this JWT with the following:

  const jwt = require('njwt')
  const { token } = req.params
  jwt.verify(token, 'top-secret-phrase', (err, verifiedJwt) => {
    if(err){
      res.send(err.message)
    }else{
      res.send(verifiedJwt)
    }
  })

In the route /verify/:token, the :token part tells express that you want to read that section of the URL in as a param, so you can get it on req.params.token. You can then use njwt to try to verify the token. If it fails, that could mean a number of things, like the token was malformed or it has expired.

Back on your website, or in curl, create another token using http://localhost:3000/create. Then copy and paste that into the URL so you have http://localhost:3000/verify/eyJhb...R8We4. You should get something like the following:

{
  "header": { "typ": "JWT", "alg": "HS256" },
  "body": {
    "iss": "fun-with-jwts",
    "sub": "AzureDiamond",
    "jti": "3668a38b-d25d-47ee-8da2-19a36d51e3da",
    "iat": 1542146783,
    "exp": 1542146843
  }
}

If you wait a minute and try again, you’ll instead get jwt expired.

Add OIDC Middleware to Your Node App to Handle JWT Functionality

Well, that wasn’t so bad. But I sure glossed over a lot of details. That top-secret-phrase isn’t really very top secret. How do you make sure you have a secure one and it’s not easy to find? What about all the other JWT options? How do you actually store that in a browser? What’s the optimal expiration time for a token?

This is where Okta comes in to play. Rather than dealing with all this yourself, you can leverage Okta’s cloud service to handle it all for you. After a couple minutes of setup, you can stop thinking about how to make your app secure and just focus on what makes it unique.

Why Auth with Okta?

Okta is a cloud service that allows developers to create, edit, and securely store user accounts and user account data, and connect them with one or multiple applications. Our API enables you to:

If you don’t already have one, sign up for a forever-free developer account.

Create an Okta Server

You’re going to need to save some information to use in your app. Create a new file named .env. In it, enter your Okta organization URL.

          Call for Applications for Framework Contracts: Individual Expert      Cache   Translate Page      
Call for Applications for Framework Contracts: Individual Expert As a flagship initiative of UK Aid, the Department for International Development (DFID) is sponsoring the Uganda Cities & Infrastructure for Growth (CIG) programme, implemented through Cardno Emerging Markets (UK) Ltd. DFID’s mission is to help eradicate poverty in the world’s poorest countries by supporting economic transformation that shifts economic activity into higher productivity sectors to attract investment, growth, and create jobs for women and men. Cities have a key role to play in supporting the structural transformation of economies through the benefits of agglomeration to generate large scale employment. However, poor planning, inadequate governance and environmental damage can lock cities into dysfunctional forms. Urbanisation without reform and modernisation will prevent cities from fulfilling their social and economic potential. CIG recognises that deficits in Uganda’s urban planning and infrastructure development are binding constraints to growth. Lack of reliable and affordable power, water supply and infrastructure connectivity raise costs, reduce competitiveness and hold back investments and job creation. The Uganda Cities and Infrastructure for Growth (CIG) is a five-year DFID funded programme with the aim of strengthening the management of urban and energy sectors and boost investment into infrastructure in Uganda. In the Ugandan context, given its economic geography, this may include urban centres of varying sizes as well as sub-regions, especially where these are centres of prospective economic growth and where infrastructure may be a key enabling factor. The programme will deliver inclusive economic transformation and growth that is climate resilient and contributes to poverty reduction and economic inclusion of disadvantaged groups. The Uganda Cities & Infrastructure for Growth (CIG) programme, managed by Cardno Emerging Markets (UK) Ltd, is seeking applications from individual experts to establish a pre-qualified database of highly qualified and experienced consultants through framework contracts in the following four themes/fields: 1) Urban Planning and Development; 2) Infrastructure; 3) Infrastructure Project Preparation and Financing; and 4) Power. The framework contracts database will become a mechanism through which CIG Uganda will be able to swiftly source, contract and mobilise consultants from a list of pre-qualified experts for specific assignments and will reduce the time for sourcing and selecting individual experts. Cardno Emerging Markets will deliver the CIG Uganda programme of projects and activities between 2019 and 2022. This application process is open to any individual who meets the criteria detailed in the call for applications document and there are no restrictions with regards to nationality or country of residence. Women and locally based individuals are encouraged to apply. Interested Individual experts can download the call for application document here: https://www.cardno.com/media/3653/call-for-applications-for-individual-framework-contracts.pdf Interested individuals can also request the call for application document at CIGUg.procurement@cardno.com. All applications must be received by no later than 5:00pm UK time on Friday 31 January 2019. Applications and all queries must be submitted directly to CIGUg.procurement@cardno.com. Cardno Emerging Markets is an Equal Opportunity Employer and is committed to Child Protection.
