Hi! Welcome on my Computer Security blog 😀

I hope you'll find suitable content for you. As this blog will be beginner-intermediate content, errors may occur.

About me

My passion for computer security is logically related from my curiosity and my desire to divert normal usage of what surrounds me.

In my early teens I remember doing challenges on Root-Me.org and even trying to find SQL Injection on production websites with Havij (good ol' script kiddie 😌).

This is how I naturally did computer science studies. My studies gave me the opportunity to discover new areas of computer science. So I continued my journey with web development where I did a 2-year internship as a Fullstack developer in a tourism start-up. I had good times developping websites, mobile applications and improving web-applications with cutting-edge technologies but still felt that it was just a phase in my career.

Thanks to the Coronavirus Lockdown (🥳) that took place in March, I reconnected to computer security by doing some wargames on OverTheWire.org and playing Cryptopals. I then took classes on pwn.college which is an initiative by Arizona State University but I’ll talk about it in a future post.

Blog goals

First of all, the reason I created this blog is mostly because I like to share knowledge and help people. That’s kind of a payback for the help I received on IRCs, Discords or forums.

This blog will also allow me to leave a trace of my progression in computer security area.

Here’s a list of the content I’ll publish on this blog:

  • Write-ups (Wargames, CTF challenges)
  • Deepening of a subject (e.g, while doing Cryptopals I implemented AES algorithm in C)
  • Tutorials on vulnerabilities and their exploitation
  • Feedback from training experiences (eg. pwn.college)
