Nathan Kirkland is a security engineer at Security Innovation. He specializes in testing web applications, unique cryptographic protocols, and cloud environments. Self taught and brought up on a steady diet of video game modding and borrowed security books, he has a passion for curiosity. Legend says he still keeps his coffee (and tear) stained 1980s edition of The C Programming Language by K&R stored in a box somewhere. When he’s not doing CTFs or working on cryptography projects, he’s probably either enjoying the great outdoors or is in a coffee shop with his head stuffed in a Kierkegaard book.
