Fix init sequence in Raspberry Pi

If the init sequence gets broken and you can't get to a shell on a Raspberry Pi (I'm using 3 model B), you can boot into recovery mode this way.
  • Hit shift when starting up.
  • Hit "e" to edit config
  • tab over to cmdline.txt
  • add to the end of the line
  • hit ok, then Esc to boot...... it will boot you in to a command line
    # mount -n -o remount,rw / (this will remount / so you can make changes)
  • now you should be able to edit the init.d config.
  • when you reboot again.... hold shift and remove the init=/bin/sh

Verifying OpenSSL certificates

Verifying that a certificate is issued by a CA

How to use OpenSSL on the command line to verify that a certificate was issued by a specific CA, given that CA's certificate:
$ openssl verify -verbose -CAfile cacert.pem  server.crt
server.crt: OK

Verify that a private key matches a certificate

$ openssl x509 -noout -modulus -in server.crt | openssl md5
$ openssl rsa -noout -modulus -in server.key | openssl md5
The resultant hashes should match.

Chaining class decorators

The last (i.e. outer) decorator's behavior gets executed first.
def require_authentication_permission(permission):
    def decorator(cls):
        cls.dispatch = method_decorator(
                permission, raise_exception=True)
        cls2 = class_login_required(cls)
        return cls2

    return decorator
In this case, the execution order is:
  1. class_login_required
  2. permission_required
