Hi, I’m Anirudh.

But you’ll see me as icyphox on the Internet. I’m doing my undergrad right now, majoring in CS. My primary interest is computer security, and more specifically — offensive security and digital forensics. On the less technical side of things, I love discussing operational security and tradecraft. I’m also a CTF player/security researcher at Sector443, an infosec community at my University. Sometimes, I will compose a post for my blog.

In my free time (which I tend to have a lot of) I contribute to open-source projects like the Nim programming language. Take a look at my GitHub profile for more of my work.

Atmospheric/electronic metal subgenres are my jam. If it djents, I like it. My Last.fm should be self-explanatory. For those who didn’t click it: bands like Oceans Ate Alaska, I See Stars, Invent Animate, Make Them Suffer, Ice Nine Kills, etc.

You might be interested in my setup, which I’ve written about in detail here.

I love languages, but I can never stick to one. I currently speak English, French, Tamil and Hindi. I can understand and read very basic Japanese, and I’ve just begun learning Russian which I’m really enjoying so far.

My DMs on Twitter are open, so feel free to slide into them. Don’t use Twitter? Shoot me a plain-text email. If it’s something secret, here’s my Keybase. You can also find me on IRC @ Rizon and Freenode, as icyphox – feel free to PM!

Want to hire me? I’m down for freelance security work. Here’s my résumé.
