About

I work as a Software Engineer, specialized in open source software development for Linux.

I hold a Computer Science Engineering degree from ESI college in Algiers, Algeria. Currently, I work for Greenbone Networks as one of the main developers of OpenVAS: The world's most advanced Open Source Vulnerability Scanning and Management framework.

Some open source work I did could be found on my OpenHub account.

Back when I was in college, I have founded and led the OWASP Algeria Student Chapter and was the founder and main organizer of the BSides Algiers 2012 Security B-Sides event. This has evolved into the tireless students club known as Shellmates.

Other than computer science related work, I enjoy physical training (Martial-arts in the past, powerlifting nowadays), reading books related to various topics (Politics, economics, philosophy, history...) listening to music (trance mostly) and participating in group activities.
