good morning dear people out there in cyberspace, today begins the second week
of my cyber_security internship.
fyi i am writing these posts in my spare time at work, i am suppposed to document my learning process anyway so why not do it live on here?
last week was already pretty amazing, i learned how to set up a webserver called nginx on my first day and ran a personal cloud on it. i did the same thing the day after but this time via docker and the day after that via docker_compose.
and that's where things get really interesting, because these are relly amazing tools for a developmental environment.
i could try to explain the details here, but to be honest i haven't fully understood the whole system behind docker and as of now i am still unable to do stuff like that on my own without the use of a tutorial, but that's where sites like digitalocean come into play. there are great free tutorials on there and i absolutely recommend you give it a shot.
today my task is to learn the different features of the server_monitoring software "checkmk",
i got it running on my testserver and because i connected our printer via snmp_v2,
i was able to tell that we haven't had any paper left in the tray.
i know that's the most basic thing one can monitor (leaving cpu_usage or memory out of the equation) but it still felt really cool to be able to do something like that.
i am at the absolute beginning right now and every time i learn something new it totally blews my mind, that is the reason why i got into this field, well at least one of them.
enjoy your day folks, i surely will enjoy mine
