Gift Ideas

These are both pretty cool gift ideas.

A seller named GiantEye offers Lock Pick Earrings on Etsy for $40.  They seem like a good gift idea.  I’m unfamiliar with GiantEye, but the site is advertising the picks can be used.  I don’t know if I’d ever try using them though given their decorative purpose.

Rift Recon is offering a set of small picks called a Bogota.  I was unfamiliar with the term.  It is used to reference smaller lock picks that can be discretely hidden.  These smaller picks are also $40.  I was introduced to Rift Recon at DefCon.  They were demonstrating their Red Team Kit at the Security Sociability party.

I’m considering abandoning Security Onion.  I can’t justify the full packet capture.  I don’t have the hardware resources.  I’m thinking about using a standard Linux install with just Bro and Splunk.  I can’t get in to ELSA and Bro is my favorite part of Security Onion.
