Down to the Wire

Stream Based Processing in Node

Zachary Wade

Over the past few weeks, I have begun working on a set of tools called hakkit for helping me to write CTF scripts in node.js. Many of the ideas are lifted off of pwnlib, but soon after I started, I realized that by utilizing Node’s stream APIs, I could take my tools a step further than the pwnlib ones. By behaving similar to unix file descriptors, Node streams allow for powerful and extensible data manipulation.

Welcome to Down to the Wire!

In the coming weeks we will start adding posts and discussing current projects and goals, including an upcoming post about developing Down to the Wire itself. Until then, however, I wanted to share a little bit about what DttW is, and why we decided to start it.
