Hello, I’m Elliot Speck. I’m an OSCP-certified information security consultant living in Victoria, Australia. In most places, I go by Tecuane online.
My personal areas of research and expertise lie in cloud computing, social engineering, and systems security, but I also do extensive work with web applications, industrial control systems, and network infrastructure too.
I have a strong background in BSD, Linux, macOS, and Windows system administration in both a server and endpoint capacity. I spend a good deal of my free time time working on making things perform varying degrees of undefined behaviour for my own amusement.
I currently work for Sense of Security, a specialist information security firm in Australia. I previously worked at PricewaterhouseCoopers Australia as a cyber security consultant, and before that I worked at RamNode as a virtualisation technician and system administrator.
In my own time I make things that are sort of cool if you squint a bit, disassemble and break things, and help run a myriad of small projects around the internet. A lot of my personal work ends up on GitHub. I mostly write Go, Python, and Ruby, but know a good number of other programming languages too, such as C and Rust. I spend a lot of my time around KVM, VMware, and Xen hypervisors.
