Install all my basic useful tools

Here is a command to install all the small tools that are quite useful

apt install vim screen zsh htop iftop iotop subversion git ndisc6 debian-goodies sipcalc pwgen lshw apt-file sudo lvm2 apticron vlan dnsutils whois ldap-utils apt-transport-https xfsprogs rsync figlet


Setup IPv6

Install the dibbler client

apt install dibbler-client

Update the client-duid with the one gaven for IPv6 by your provider

root@cloud:[~]# cat /var/lib/dibbler/client-duid

Edit your /etc/dibbler/client.conf

# Defaults for dibbler-client.
# installed at /etc/dibbler/client.conf by the maintainer scripts
# DDUID is stored in /var/lib/dibbler/client-duid

# 8 (Debug) is most verbose. 7 (Info) is usually the best option
#log-level 7

# To perform stateless (i.e. options only) configuration, uncomment
# this line below and remove any "ia" keywords from interface definitions
# stateless

auth-protocol reconfigure-key
auth-replay monotonic
auth-methods digest-hmac-md5
duid-type duid-ll
log-level 8

iface eth0 {
# ask for address

Update /etc/network/interfaces with the address to use

iface eth0 inet6 static
         address 2001:bc8:1234:1234::1234
         netmask 64
         accept_ra 2

nftables Firewall : Now use nftables instead of (ip|ip6|arp|eb)tables

Enable nft autocompletion in ZSH !!

  • Problem: At this time, zsh 5.7.1-1 doesn't include the _nftables completion script for nftables !!
  • Solution: Manually enable it with the command below
cd /usr/share/zsh/functions/Completion/Linux
wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/zsh-users/zsh-completions/master/src/_nftables

List all rules

root@cloud:[~]# nft list ruleset
table inet filter {
        chain input {
                type filter hook input priority 0; policy drop;
                iif "lo" accept
                ct state established,related accept
                ct state invalid drop
                ip6 saddr fe80::/10 udp dport dhcpv6-client counter packets 26 bytes 3484 accept
                ip6 saddr fe80::/10 tcp dport dhcpv6-client counter packets 0 bytes 0 accept
                ip6 nexthdr ipv6-icmp accept
                ip6 nexthdr ipv6-icmp icmpv6 type { destination-unreachable, packet-too-big, time-exceeded, parameter-problem, mld-listener-query, mld-listener-report, mld-listener-done, nd-router-solicit, nd-router-advert, nd-neighbor-solicit, nd-neighbor-advert, ind-neighbor-solicit, ind-neighbor-advert, mld2-listener-report } accept
                ip protocol icmp icmp type { destination-unreachable, echo-request, router-advertisement, router-solicitation, time-exceeded, parameter-problem } accept
                tcp dport { ssh, http, https } ct state new accept

        chain forward {
                type filter hook forward priority 0; policy accept;

        chain output {
                type filter hook output priority 0; policy accept;

List all sets

root@cloud:~# nft add set inet filter blackhole {type ipv4_addr \; }

root@cloud:~# nft add element inet filter blackhole {,}

root@cloud:~# nft list set inet filter blackhole
table inet filter {
        set blackhole {
                type ipv4_addr
                elements = {, }

apt install bind9

Enable DNSSEC for a domain

https://kb.isc.org/docs/aa-00626 https://linux.die.net/man/1/dig https://www.isc.org/downloads/bind/dnssec/ https://ftp.isc.org/isc/dnssec-guide/dnssec-guide.pdf http://www.average.org/dnssec/dnssec-configuring-auto-signed-dynamic-zones.txt

  • Generate RSA keys to sign the Zone and RRs. Allow bind to read the private key to automatically sign
root@link:[~]# cd /etc/bind/keys
root@link:[/etc/../keys]# dnssec-keygen -K /etc/bind/keys leurent.eu
Generating key pair...+++++ ................................................................................................................+++++ 
root@link:[/etc/../keys]# dnssec-keygen -f KSK -K /etc/bind/keys leurent.eu
Generating key pair....+++++ .....................+++++ 
root@link:[/etc/../keys]# chmod g+r /etc/bind/keys/Kleurent.eu.*.private
  • Update your /etc/bind/named.conf.local zone
zone "leurent.eu" {
            # look for dnssec keys here:
            key-directory "/etc/bind/keys";

            # publish and activate dnssec keys:
            auto-dnssec maintain;

            # use inline signing:
            inline-signing yes;
  • Reload bind9
root@link:[~]# systemctl reload bind9.service                                                                                                23:22 Wed 27/02/2019
  • Once reloaded you should see an additional .signed version of the zone that will be automatically maintained
