I’m Anirudh, but you’ll often find me as icyphox (or just icy), on the Internet. I currently work as a Site Reliability Engineer at DeepSource.

Here’s a list of things that I’m interested in, or care deeply about (also serve as good conversation starters if you want to talk to me!):

  • security
    • low level stuff (think: binary/kernel exploitation)
    • threat research
    • physical vectors
    • disinformation
    • state-sponsored actors
  • privacy
    • secure communications
    • operational security
    • anti-surveillance
  • free software
  • infrastructure
    • monitoring and observability
    • distributed systems
  • heavy music
    • metalcore
    • deathcore
  • strategy games (I’m not very good at them)
    • Runeterra
    • Dota 2

Here are some of my links:
