About Us

Many people had a hand in creating this project and we'd like to blame thank the following for their help:

Ben Jackson

Ben's MugshotBen is just another geek from Massachusetts. He spends his days doing InfoSec stuff, generally breaking things, and being relentlessly yet constructively paranoid for a large public sector organization in southern New England. In his spare time he enjoys being a husband and dad and messing around with computers, VoIP, analog telephones, amateur radio, and generally anything with a button on it. Ben was the lead author for "Asterisk Hacking" from Syngress Publishing and has spoken at DEFCON, HOPE, SOURCE Boston, QuahogCon, and various other conferences. Ben strongly dislikes writing about himself in the third person. Find him on Twitter as @innismir

Larry Pesce

Larry's Mugshot Larry is a Senior Security Consultant with NWN Corporation based in Waltham, MA. Larry also diverts a significant portion of his attention with PaulDotCom Enterprises, PaulDotCom Enterprises, and leads the research efforts in many areas, including projects such as "Evil" USB thumb drives, hiding rogue access points, and tinkering with wireless, RFID, Cellular SIM cards and metadata. Together Paul and Larry co-authored "Linksys WRT54G Ultimate Hacking" from Syngress Publishing, and Larry has also presented at Shmoocon 4 and DEFCON 16, and was a contributing author to "How to Cheat at Configuring Open Source Security Tools" and "Wireshark and Ethereal" from Syngress Publishing.
