HTTP/2 offers several improvements over the earlier version, HTTP/1.1

Prioritization: Developers have detailed control over the order in which content loads. This maximizes page load speed across different browsers. Certain resources (render-blocking resources) no longer block the rest of the page from loading.

Python Testing Frameworks

Python offers several testing frameworks. Here are three common ones: unittest: A built-in framework inspired by Java’s JUnit. It provides test discovery, fixtures, and assertions. Pytest: A popular third-party framework known for its simplicity, powerful features, and concise syntax. Pytest automatically discovers and runs tests. doctest: A lightweight framework that extracts test cases from docstrings. It’s useful for testing examples in documentation

Running Python Scripts

To create and run Python scripts: Download Python (it’s free!). Create a script file with the extension .py. Add your Python code to the file. Open your terminal or command prompt. Type python followed by the path to your script file. Execute the script by pressing Enter

Python for Automation

Python is a popular programming language for task automation due to several factors: Simplicity and Intuitiveness: Python’s syntax is easy to read and comprehend, making it accessible even for beginners. Data Structures Support: Python offers various data structures (such as lists and dictionaries) and allows users to create custom data structures, facilitating data management. Extensive Libraries: Python comes with a vast set of libraries that enable automation across various domains, including machine learning and operating system management. Its large support network ensures answers to most automation questions are readily available online

Symmetric Encryption and Decryption with a key file

Generate a random 256-bit key To generate a random 256-bit key using /dev/urandom, you can directly extract the random data without the need for additional hashing. Here’s how you can do it: $ dd if=/dev/urandom of=/path/to/your/keyfile bs=1 count=32 In this command: if=/dev/urandom specifies the input source as /dev/urandom. of=/path/to/your/keyfile specifies the output file where your key will be saved. bs=1 sets the block size to 1 byte. count=32 specifies that we want 32 bytes (256 bits) of random data. Example: $ dd if=/dev/urandom of=symmetric_keyfile.key bs=1 count=32 Encryption We can use this command to encrypt the sample.txt file: $ openssl enc -in sample.txt -out sample.txt.enc -e -aes256 -pbkdf2 -kfile symmetric_keyfile.key Decryption $ openssl enc -in sample.txt.enc -out sample_decrypted.txt -d -aes256 -pbkdf2  -kfile symmetric_keyfile.key
