Who are you?
Hi fellas, it is always a hard exercise to introduce himself, that's what happens when you work in this area … Paranoia, here you are !
I followed for a few years now, null-bytes and read with interest the articles that, you guys, have spent time to write and had the kindness to share with the rest of the community. I think that it is my turn now to contribute, as you did before, to the education of our fellow hackers.
So, as you have probably already guessed, I’m Nitrax, computer security lover and humanity haters.
I’m, in a first place, a programmer, and master several languages such as C, C++, NodeJS, Java and bash. Moreover, I have quite decent knowledge in ASM, Go, C#, Python, … However, programming is for me more a tool than a passion. Indeed, it allows me to create any kind of program for the sake of my curiosity and my needs.
Upstream, I have an MSc in computer security and a bunch of skills in many domains applied to information security :
- Network and network security
- Computer and system security
- Trust and privacy management
- Systems architecture (if you want to create a new file system, I’m the man !)
- Malwares analysis
I’m particularly interested in social engineering / Doxing (because people are incredibly dumb and don’t know how to control their internet fingerprint), zero days discovery, CTF and privacy / anonymity area.

Otherwise, I’m currently pentester and freelancer for who has the capacity to offer himself my services.
I’m happy and excited to share my knowledge with you and already have few ideas of tutorials that can potentially interest the community :
- How to build and customized a sneaky operating system
- Hardware cryptanalysis
- Specific tools (Don’t hesitate to tell me your wishes)
- How to create a CAPTCHA breaker
Lastly, I have a bunch of side projects that I cannot, due to a lack of time, develop alone such as a doxer combined with a neural network, an anonymity box on RPI, …
Can you program? If yes, what languages?
A language is just a way to express yourself and don’t represent or categorize who you are. If you know the basics and how instruction sets are handled by your system, you should be able to express yourself whatever the language.
