Hello! My name is Francesco Cagnin. I am a graduate CS student at Ca' Foscari University of Venice (IT) and an intern at Quarkslab in Paris (FR), where I'm currently learning about macOS internals.

My interests lie primarily in computer security, with a strong focus on reversing and binary exploitation. In the last years I played many CTFs together with my friends of c00kies@venice, including three RuCTF Finals in Yekaterinburg (RU) culminated in an epic 2nd place. In 2017, I was one of the Google CTF Quals write-up winners. In 2018, I have held some classes for the bright guys of CyberChallenge.IT/VE and took part in organising the related national Attack–Defence CTF. Recently, I participated in DEF CON CTF 26 Finals in Las Vegas (US) with team mHACKeroni, and attended the CISPA Summer School 2018 on System Security. I regularly update my list of interesting resources about pwning stuff and sometimes publish solutions to CTF challenges.

From time to time I also enjoy diving into game programming and machine learning.
