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.
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.
