Hello!

As you might have learned from the "A Plan for the Q3 2023 Iteration" post, my focus for this iteration is on adding support for automatic scheduled resource checks for the "Web Scraping → Resources trackers" utility in Secutils.dev. This work is already in progress, and in this post, I'd like to share more details about how I'm designing the scheduler for Secutils.dev. If you're building a scheduler for your application, hopefully, you can learn a useful thing or two.

Hello!

In one of my previous posts, I mentioned that I wrapped up the "Q2 2023 Apr-Jun" iteration and moved on to the next one: "Q3 2023 Jul-Sep". In this post, I want to briefly cover what I'm going to work on during this iteration. I'll highlight three main areas: improvements to the certificate templates, scheduled automatic web page resources checks, and shareable content.

Hello!

This is the third and final part of a series of posts (part #1, part #2) where I explain why comparing JavaScript and CSS files isn't as simple as it may initially seem. Additionally, I'll share how I tackled this problem for the Resources Tracker utility in Secutils.dev.

In the previous posts, I covered various challenges, including handling both inline and external resources, dealing with dynamically loaded and frequently changing resources, and comparing data and blob URLs. Today, I'd like to discuss the security-related challenges you should be mindful of if you're planning to build a similar tool like the Resources Tracker utility.

Hello!

This is the second part of my previous post where I started discussing the challenges related to tracking changes in JavaScript and CSS resources, and how I address these challenges in the Resources Tracker utility in Secutils.dev.

In the previous part, I talked about handling inline and external resources, dealing with dynamically loaded resources, and comparing large-sized resources. Now, let's explore the next set of challenges you need to consider when comparing JavaScript and CSS resources.

Hello!

In one of my previous posts, I explained the concept behind the Resource Tracker utility in Secutils.dev and who can benefit from it. Initially, I had planned to release it in the "Q2 2023 - Apr - Jun" feature update (around the first week of July). However, it has taken a bit more time than I initially anticipated. In this post and the following ones, I would like to explain why comparing JavaScript and CSS files is not as simple of a problem as it may appear at first glance, and I'll share the solution I developed for Secutils.dev.
