Serverless Toolkit for Pentesters
Over the past few weeks as I've explored different serverless providers, I realized a lot of the simple tasks I used VPSs for could be migrated to serverless - where I never have to worry about infrastructure, and (the best part) IT'S FREE. I've put together some serverless functions that I think are extremely helpful for pentesters, and I'm hoping this post inspires more to take full advantage of "serverless" infrastructure when it comes to security testing.

AWS Elastic Beanstalk – Deploy Web Applications
You can simply upload your code and Elastic Beanstalk automatically handles the deployment, from capacity provisioning, load balancing, auto-scaling to application health monitoring. At the same time, you retain full control over the AWS resources powering your application and can access the underlying resources at any time.

There is no additional charge for Elastic Beanstalk - you pay only for the AWS resources needed to store and run your applications.

The Most Awful Transit Center in America Could Get Unimaginably Worse - Bloomberg
The addition of New Jersey Transit trains in the 1990s was both an economic boon to the region—I bought a house in Maplewood, N.J., in 1996 so I could ride the new Midtown Direct to work—and the beginning of Penn Station’s transformation from mere malodorous eyesore to Hieronymus Bosch-grade hellhole.

The Next Empire - Magazine - The Atlantic
I was about to embark on one of the world’s great train rides, a journey from this muggy Indian Ocean port city, the commercial capital of Tanzania, to the edge of the Zambian Copper Belt, deep in the heart of southern Africa. The official who’d sold me my ticket had seemed puzzled when I asked when the train would arrive at its final destination, and he refused to guess; in recent years, the 1,156-mile trip has been known to take anywhere from its originally scheduled two days to an entire week.
