Peter Kacherginsky (iphelix) is the author of The Sprawl project and all of its original content. I live in San Francisco, CA. You can usually find me at local hacker/security meetings and con fere nces.

Most of my free time goes to security research and development. Over the years I had great times hanging out with smart and unique individuals as well as messing with wireless, search engines, traffic analysis, tor, password cracking and other fun subjects.

Professionally I have been doing an offensive/defensive spiral moving from incident response to penetration testing and currently back to defensive as a malware analyst/reverse engineer.

I had a great experience doing a year-long research sabbatical studying reverse engineering, malware analysis, vulnerability research, and exploit development.

Other than security research, I enjoy Krav Maga system and urban exploration photography. I am also a native Russian speaker.
