Hi! I’m Jamal Shaheed

Security and Networking Student (with a mediocre blog!)


About Me

I’m a computer science student who enjoys the art of tinkering with software until it breaks, because of this I can usually be found restoring my system from a backup, attacking my own servers with the latest exploit in my homelab or figuring out what the hell is an oink code for SNORT.

I’ve always been interested in the security and networking side of things, from the different kinds of encryption standards to how botnets pummel web servers. I’m currently looking for work experience to have a real world taste in this growing and evolving sector that I hope can provide me new challenges everyday.

When not sitting in front of a computer I can be found playing Rugby, mountain biking and having a drink with friends.
