About me

Hey there, I am a Security Consultant from India working at Payatu, a cyber-security startup. Currently, I am co-leading the Red Team Tower within my organization, where I am fortunate to manage and collaborate with a team of highly skilled Cyber Security Engineers. I have a deep interest in solving complex cyber-security problems that present themselves through different mediums, be it work-related Projects, CTFs, Boot2Root Machines, or personal Homelab projects

As someone who is entrusted with the task of protecting organizations from cyber risks and vulnerabilities, I evaluate their products and infrastructure, pinpoint potential issues, and offer comprehensive remediation plans to minimize the risk of cyber-security incidents. Moreover, I maintain a platform where I share my views on different Cyber Security matters. Interested readers can explore my blog to find such articles.

P.S: If it interests you to know why I go by the alias 0xpurecha0s, read this.

What i'm doing

  • Red Teaming

    I can help perform adversary emulation exercises against a target organization. Such an exercise can help establish the current cyber-security posture of the organization and establish scopes of improvement. I have been involved in performing such exercises against many organizations including a few in the Fortune 500.

  • Website Pentesting

    With a very strong background in Web Application Pentesting, I can help an organization in identifying and addressing security issues in their Web Application by leveraging a combination of manual testing and advanced automated security testing tools.

  • Mobile Application Pentesting

    I also have some background in testing for security issues in Mobile Application (iOS/Android).

  • Cloud

    I have a very strong background in testing for security issues on cloud platforms like Azure and AWS. I have highlighted very serious configuration issues which have helped organization in securing their Cloud Infrastructure.
