Hey everyone, welcome. My name is Jake, I'm an Application Security Consultant / Vulnerability Researcher based in Canberra, Australia.

The purpose of this space is threefold:

1) To document any research I'm undertaking.

2) To promote secure development practices and (hopefully) educate both security professionals and software developers, alike.

3) To demonstrate what happens when secure coding principles aren't adhered to.

Hey nerd, are you the best person to be educating us?

Definitely not. But as my over-the-hill ex-manager once said "I know enough to be dangerous".

While I don't believe that certifications are the best indicator of ability or talent, I've dedicated a lot of time to them and I'm pretty stoked with my achievements.

What else are you studying these days?

  • .NET Core MVC Application Development.
  • Golang.
  • x86 Assembly

Cool story bro, what do I get out of this?

My primary aim is to eliminate the "DevSec Disconnect" between the developer and the security professional.

I want to instil digestible, secure-by-design coding principles for all levels. From the junior developer with an interest in security, to the 10x'er who has never written a vulnerable piece of code in their life (Ha!).

For my security folk, I want to help you develop and refine your testing methodology. Hopefully you pick up a few tips or tricks to use in your next engagement.

Are you done preaching your "Shift Left" ideology?

I am - for now.

If you need any security advice or just want to have a chat, feel free to hit me up on any of my social accounts.
