|Black Sun Research Facility was founded in 1998 by
Raven, Njan and Fang
following the success of their C.A.I.R.A.
project, to educate people in the field of the Internet,
and more generally computer security. After the
retirement of Raven in 2000, BSRF was later handed over
in January of 2001 to Mikkkeee who with
the aid of Digitalfallout,
and a whole new team kept
the site alive. During the years, Black Sun Research
Facility has helped many people and has become a very
popular security site. |
|The main feature of Black Sun Research
Facility is tutorials. We have a huge number of
tutorials and translations on various topics. They
cover everything from phreaking to coding.
Although the main area of BSRF tutorials is
network security. We also have a Message
Board, where you can post your questions
(every legal question is answered), or you can subscribe
to our Mailing
List, and then you'll receive BSRF news and
Today we added a new tutorial on the use, advantages, and disadvantages of Flat Text File Databases in Perl written by Matt.
We also have added a link to UndergroundWorld. Look in the next coming weeks for some new tutorial from the Blacksun team.
We are now in the process of getting the books page back up with no broken links and getting a kick ass wallpaper section going.
For you programmers out there I am working on getting my long awaited Windows API Programming tutorial done in the next week or two.
Well our prayers were not answered, the anti-terrorism law has been passed so now we really have to "change" our look in order to be more complient with the new law. Ahh enough crying about this, we are currently writing the majority of our tutorials, not because of the law but because of their age. Many of you guys have read the tuts from the reign of Raven and have emailed us about updating them so there you go. Hopefully the rewrites / updates will be released before the new year. In other news we have a new Wallpaper for you. Big greetz goes out to Mark Collins aka FISH, for doing the wallpaper. I also received a few emails from artist who want to contribute so except some good $hit. Now for the real deal, we all have went to the books page and clicked on a book then found a 404 then you cursed bsrf, lol yah you did. Well I have added at least 90 books today, and a new section OpenVMS books and have taken out many of the dead links. In the upcoming weeks we will be making sure that all dead links will be gone. Ahh before i forget, we have made some additions to the team page, pgp keys as well as member home pages have been added so check it out. Also for the guys who use our java applet there is a little redesign of the logo, thx to CHAOS for that logo, so Enjoy!!!
Blacksun Research Facility has been working feverishly to make itself complient with the new law that has been passed through the House and Senate. Although it has
not been signed by President Bush we have started to remove any tutorials and content that might be classified as "hacking material" or material that
could aid a hacker. Many other tutorials are being rewritten to not only be complient with the new law but also to be up-to-date with technology. Due to a recent
e-mail that was sent to Blacksun and many other groups we have also removed all tutorials by Ankit Fadia. If you find a tutorial you belive we have missed please
