  • Exploiting against ASLR and DEP based Systems

    Studied ASLR and DEP based systems and wrote exploits like GOT Hijacking and return to libc, in order to control program flow

  • Applying Information Assurance on IT based Networks

    This involved Penetration Testing on a IT based network, Host based hardening of Linux and Windows Systems, Implementing Multi-platform Network Time Synchronization, Network Tra^Nc monitoring with vulnerability scanning

  • Vulnerability Assessment of a Virtually hosted Web Application

    This project involved analyzing and exploiting web vulnerabilities like XSS, CSRF, SQL Injection and others, using tools like skipfish and to suggest remediation for the same.

  • Host-based Intrusion detection using Open Source Security (OSSEC)

    Worked in a team to implement file integrity checking, syslog monitoring, log based IDS and active responses using OSSEC on a simulated virtual network. OSSEC is an open source, cross-platform host-based intrusion detection system (IDS). It provides intrusion detection for many operating systems such as Windows, Linux, Unix, MAC OSX and Solaris. It has a centralized and cross-platform architecture which enables any administrator to monitor and manage multiple systems
