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.
