My name is Zac Franken and this is my first foray into blogging. It's to share the bits and pieces that I design, dig up, discover or otherwise furtle around with and my day job at Aperture Labs a security company that specialises in security auditing embedded systems. For many years I have been a behind the scenes sort of guy. I've been operations director for Defcon for 19 years and have enjoyed contibuting to the security community by primarily making sure Defcon goes off with a few hitches as possible each year. Normally the most people get to see of me is thanking my teams at the closing ceremonies and hurrying along corridors looking stressed. It has been suggested to me, by my friend and business partner Adam Laurie aka Major Malfunction aka Code Monkey that a bunch of the stuff is do is "cool & interesting", so here it is, and I'll let you be the judge of that.
So if you read this I hope you enjoy, and take care, as some of the
contents are not for the faint hearted and are quite frankly hazardous

not maim/kill yourself and/or anyone else, burn/blowup the house or
