Kevin Watson

I complete penetration tests, typically focused on application security, for a wide variety of platforms professionally and create personal experiments to learn about new technologies, myself, and my environment using statistical and signal processing methods.

I'm fascinated by the challenges of cryptography, not so much cryptocurrency, and am improving my testing skills and understanding of DevOps processes by documenting them here. The challenge for this writing is to build on a foundation of references and evidence, so that I am forced to confront my own preconceived notions and gaps in knowledge.

I earned a degree in electrical and biomedical engineering and am an Offensive Security Certified Professional (OSCP).
