A great tool has just been released for testing your servers / PCs / network security from the palm of your hand!
zANTI is penetration testing software for Android and can perform a variety of tests such as scanning networks and finding vulnerabilities and security holes!
You can download it directly from here but it should be on the Android App store soon!
So have not had any time these past few weeks and now I’m moving house so I will continue my RaspberryPi and Arduino adventures next month!
Check out some useful info here regarding the GPIO pins on the Arduino.
Here is some examples / sample code for the RaspberryPI / MQTT / Mosquitto / Ardunio.
SSH to your RaspberryPi, with mosquitto installed, if not already running execute the command “sudo mosquitto” to start the broker.
Now your mosquitto server is running, run the command “mosquitto_sub -d -t HomeZoneCH“, what does this do? it subscribes the RaspberriPi to the topic HomeZoneCH
Open a second ssh session to your Pi and run the command “mosquitto_pub -d -t HomeZoneCH -m “CellarLightOff”” you should see the message below.
On the first SSH session you have open you should see the message below appear!
Now with the code runnning on my Arduino after a reset I receive the following message on the first SSH session.
Now I know this is super simple and your asking yourself what value does this have? it’s just a simple demo of the messaging system… I will be sharing all my final code with Webserver, mosquitto interface etc… as soon as I feel it’s ready. I am moving house soon and will not have much time to focus but I hope to have a good update next month regarding my progress
Have a look at some useful links here, here and here
How to install Mosquitto on the RaspberryPi
Download the latest tar from http://mosquitto.org/download currently mosquitto-0.15.tar.gz
The following instructions are for the Debian install
- sudo apt-get install libwrap0-dev
- tar zxf mosquitto-0.15.tar.gz
- cd mosquitto-0.15
- sudo make install
- sudo ldconfig
Install Instruction Source
And while your waiting for it to install, get the MQTT Library for your Arduino!
So I have decided to build a web server and MQTT to further atuomate my house … I installed my Pi last night with Apache, PHP and now looking at Mosquito for MQTT.
Updates to come, all details, config and source will be published.
Have been a little busy with other commitments… have not had the time to touch Arduino and RaspberryPI…. have some ideas to turn the RaspberryPi into my HomeAutomation web server… but no time
PS: Prometheus is great!!! Get out and watch it!
