At the time of writing this, we do not have very much in place to enforce what passwords can and can’t be used on the network aside of the standard group policy controls. In the past, I used to gather AD Password hashes from the domain controller and then run the password through hashcat in order to give me a list of user passwords; The Domain Password Spray Powershell script from Dafthack changes everything.
I am currently working on setting up my website (austinoneil.com) to be SSL encrypted. The webserver is currently setup with Microsoft IIS and is not currently configured to be SSL secure. Today, we shall change this.
This is my network overview of the “Milkyway.Galaxy” domain. My entire network is named after planets and the solar system. Every week I decide to change/add/remove something so it’s constantly evolving. My network is broken into multiple VLANs to allow segmentation of the network. I use a custom built PfSense router running version 2.4.x as of the time of writing this. From my router, it feeds into my 2960x stack which is setup as router on a stick VLAN configuration.
Recently, I setup Grafana at my workplace to allow more visibility on our network. In the past I have played with Grafana in my homelab but I didn’t understand how It could be useful for me at the time when I only had one server. Now that I have a handful of servers that can be a pain sometimes to monitor, I’ve decided to give Grafana another go.

To kick things off on this blog, I want to talk about where I currently am in my life.
Unfortunately due to some family events at the end of 2017, I feel like I have been slacking for the past year. I am in a process of trying to straighten my life up from top to bottom. So what does that mean you may ask?
You’ve found my corner of the internet; My one external IP address out of 4.2 Million IPv4 addresses / 333.8 Million and growing domains.
This blog is where I will be posting about my homelab projects that I often undergo. I will also be posting notes and informational posts about tutorials that I find online, and anything else I learn as I go along.
I am not the worlds best blogger but hopefully as I do this more, it will get easier with time.
Anyways…. Hope you enjoy the blog!
