Command of the Day: dig

Going to end this week with the last DNS lookup tools released with BIND9. I’m sure there are other DNS lookup tools, and I know the Internet Systems Consortium has various other tools for you to use. Today we’re looking at dig, the first DNS lookup utility I ever used back in the day. Had now idea how it worked, kind of just copied and pasted code, but thought it was so cool to get an IP address of a website.

Command of the Day: host

As I continue down the path of trying to transition into InfoSec and continuing to study for my OSCP exam, I thought I’d take advantage of what I’m doing here to make this a study habit for myself. I thought about starting with a deep dive in and cover nc, but that seems to be really diving in the deep-end. I’ll start with host and see where this takes me.
