Ciao! My name is Francesco and I am a Cyber Security Researcher.
The first thing I learnt about computer is how to run Prince of Persia in MS-DOS when I was 3 years old (I was just typing the correct key sequence).
The real passion for the IT world came out ten years later when I began learning the C language, which is still my favorite way to create software.
At the age of 17 I accidentally wrote some malware (damn, bad key sequence).
My main interests today are intelligence collection and analysis, distributed systems and malwares.
I strongly trust and recommend open source software and after writing my own Tor client
I contributed to the Tor project.
Another contribution was also given to the mbedTLS project.
During my work experience I learnt how to pentest applications, to assess their vulnerabilities and to collect and analyze data to prevent intrusions for enterprises and military / law enforcement organizations.
Despite my realistic vision of obstacles I always invest maximum effort in what I believe it's right and I enjoy testing myself to overcome my limits.
Personally, I think that the use of logic is the best method to face problems and to solve them.
