Visualizing Aircraft Data

Oracle IoT Cloud Service, Raspberry Pi, and Radio Surveillance will help to visualize aircraft data
12 October 2017   1042

Need to track a single aircraft or an entire fleet without spending a ton of money? In this session, the speakers explore real-life use cases for the Internet of Things and embedded systems with the Raspberry Pi. They build an inexpensive Raspberry Pi setup, including a dual-band Automatic Dependent Surveillance–Broadcast (ADS-B) radio receiver, GPS receiver, network interface, and Java interface to Oracle Internet of Things Cloud Service. They integrate this data with an Oracle JavaScript Extension Toolkit (Oracle JET) framework viewing traffic in real time. The FAA’s ADS-B is a precise satellite-based surveillance system that broadcasts real-time weather, uses GPS technology to determine any aircraft’s location and airspeed, and relays that data to those who are listening.

Sonatype to Create Vulnerability Checker Tool

New tool is called DepShield and available in the "Security" section of the GitHub Marketplace
16 August 2018   122

Sonatype has introduced a tool for developers called DepShield, which checks the code on GitHub for vulnerabilities.

The free version of the service is looking for vulnerabilities in the OSS Index database and gives recommendations on how to fix them. In the commercial version, you can configure automatic fixing of problems. Also in DepShield there are:

  • work with the Apache Maven framework;
  • View a list of known vulnerabilities in GitHub's Issue Tracker;
  • determine the range of versions for each vulnerability.

DepShield is available in the "Security" section of the GitHub Marketplace.

GitHub has introduced two new features that will help improve security and simplify the recovery of accounts. For this, the company recommends setting a strong password and two-factor authentication.
