Projects and Research

I love to research in the field of Active Directory security and Malware Analysis. Some projects I have done recently are setting up my own pentesting lab with Microsoft Azure and practicing Active Directory attacks, analysing and locally deploying Phish Kits. I have also set up my own isolated Malware Analysis lab to develop skills in this area.
