Introducing Cloudflare Warp: Hide Behind The Edge

Any machine that’s publicly routable on the internet today can be a vector for attack, and that’s a problem. Today we want to turn the tables and give you a new way of exposing services to the internet without having them be directly, publicly routable. Meet Cloudflare Warp.

The Making of Cloudflare Warp

In the real world, tunnels are often carved out from the mass of something bigger – a hill, the ground, but also man-made structures. CC BY-SA 2.0 image by Matt Brown In an abstract sense Cloudflare Warp is similar; its connection strategy punches a hole through firewalls and NAT, and provides easy and secure passage for HTTP traffic to your origin.

Drones could be used to monitor babies in neonatal care

Credit: The Lead Drone technology is being developed to perform routine health checks remotely in a bid to reduce infection spread in neonatal care. Researchers from the University of South Australia have successfully trialed the use of drones to remotely measure heart and breathing rates in humans aged between two and 40 using advanced image-processing systems. Sensory Systems Professor Javaan Chahl said the breakthrough drone system initially began as a reflex response to fatalities resulting from problems with electrode…

Turbocharging engine design

Argonne’s Sibendu Som explains how the VERIFI team – along with the Aramco Research Center, Detroit – reduced engine design time from months to weeks. Credit: Argonne National Laboratory For scientists and engineers, the process of improving the performance of engines and fuels feels a bit like driving on a one-lane highway. They must often develop and test their designs and prototypes one at a time, which slows the pace of innovation. Computers can accelerate the process by simulating how…

Initially these different platform applications were developed independently at Slack, with separate teams and codebases for each of the mobile platforms and the desktop. About a year ago, Slack formed a new team, LibSlack, to develop a cross-platform C++ library to encapsulate common functionality and integrate it into client apps. LibSlack is currently in use in the Slack iOS and Android…
