I’m Anirudh, but you’ll often find me as icyphox (or just icy), on the Internet. I’m majoring in Computer Science currently. My primary interest is security—with a focus on influence operations, information warfare and state-sponsored actors. I write code on the occasion, most of which you can find on my GitHub. I currently work for CometChat.

I care about software freedom and digital privacy, and I am a staunch advocate of the same. I try to use free alternatives to software, if they exist.

My taste in music is very specific, and I hardly ever experiment. I like to stick to subgenres of metal, specifically—metalcore and deathcore.

Here are some of my links:

The only social media I actively use is the fediverse: https://toot.icyphox.sh/@x


Send mail to x@icyphox.sh. Should you need it, my PGP key: FE1B 8FCF E6C1 6222 F157 1C8E 8A93 F96F 78C5 D4C4. I’m also on IRC @ Freenode and Rizon, usually as icy / icyphox.

If you’re interested in hiring me—here’s my résumé.

I have Liberapay and Patreon! I don’t particularly need it, but it does help with domain and server costs. :)
