Home again which means more time to blog and per the intro to this week's update, time to catch up on how HIBP is tracking. Here's the 2 tweets with some stats I mention at the start of this week's update:
It's been almost a month since I launched Pwned Passwords V2. In that time, @cloudflare has served 156TB from their cache thus keeping the traffic off my origin. Thanks guys, this would have been a hard discussion to have with the wife otherwise! pic.twitter.com/KUX0kXwjCo— Troy Hunt (@troyhunt) March 21, 2018
Also, just got the bill for the @AzureFunctions which drive the Pwned Passwords API. Because 80%+ of requests are served from @Cloudflare's cache, I only consumed 43,531.1740 GB/s of execution time on Azure which means... ? pic.twitter.com/IFOJv9xpVl— Troy Hunt (@troyhunt) March 21, 2018
Other than that, the big thing on the agenda this week is my post on the legitimisation of HIBP. For me, this is a big deal; I've been so cautious with how this service has been positioned and I'm really happy to see it where it is today. Hopefully the video conveys a little more of the sentiment about that than what might be immediately apparent in the blog post but yeah, I'm happy ?
- HIBP has emerged out of a pretty shadowy area in the last year (it means a lot to me personally to see where it sits today)
