Do you enjoy walking, talking, eating in assembly with packers, obfuscators being the snacks and disassemblers, decompilers, debuggers your dining tools?
Do you enjoy reading and delving into latest attacks, breaches, evasions and even have more fun stepping out to build mechanisms to protect from the same?
Do you forget the wall clock ticking while being immersed into a latest mitigation behavior but still remembering to change the hard metal rock music playing?
Do you feel TCP/IP,PKI, IDS/IPS is just simply not enough and soon we need to build our own maddening indefensible network protocols?
