As you have landed up at this page, let me tell you that the title of the page is a misnomer. It’s not about ‘Me‘, really, but about what I do. More is my ‘passion’, than ‘profession’ here. Otherwise, I wonder why on the Earth anyone would be interested to know who I am. Nonetheless, as you are glancing through it, surely you are the one.
It’s Dipanjan talking to you now. Needless to say, I am one of those millions of fans of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s most prolific character, hence this pseudonym.
I joined M.Tech. in Computer Science & Engineering at IIT Madras, India in 2013 and presently pursuing the same. I was a Scientist in Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) for seventeen months. Prior to that, I was with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) for nineteen months. Back in 2010, I passed out B.Tech in Computer Science & Engineering from Institute of Engineering & Management (IEM).
During last few years, I kept myself busy with a bunch of open-source projects, e.g. SPARCSIM – A SPARC v8 simulator, OPOS – An Intel x86 based CLI Operating System, PassPass – A Windows login password hack tool, ProtectData – A data recovery and hiding software for floppies, Talk2 – A chat application, SMSCipher – An encryption software for hand-held devices, SessionChange – A Windows service to track session change events, BlockInternet – An Internet access blocker. Should you want to know more on any of these projects, take a look at the ‘Projects’ section of my blog.
My passion is in the field of Computer Security. The journey began with participating in dCTF 2011 and subsequently in taking initiative to form a Computer Security group. My idea, effort and active participation of an enthusiastic few led to the formation of Team Reboot. Together we work on framing and solving challenges on Reverse Engineering, Web application vulnerability analysis, Linux kernel exploits, Code Obfuscation, Cryptography etc. Team Reboot is a regular participant in different Capture-The-Flag (CTF) security competitions held around the world – DC3 Forensic Challenge by US DoD (Department of Defense), dCTF, DEFCON, NullCON, Mozilla CTF, RWTH CTF, RuCTFE, ENOWARE, pCTF etc. to name a few.
If you have reached at this point of my blabbering, I’d invite you to take a look at my blog to get me know more, to join Team Reboot to experience immense fun or learning or learning with fun while playing CTF or join reboot forum to be a part of active research on boot-disk with a number of truly knowledgeable folks. Either PM me in forum or use the contact form below to get in touch.
Enough for now. See you soon on board! Bye…
