About Me

Well, my name is Alessandro Tanasi, but I am mostly known as jekil.

People say I am an hacker and a security researcher, although I do not trust them. I have always been interested in how things work, and how they could possibly be breaked.

Someone described me as “a grumpy old master craftsman, who sleeps with a paper roll printout of some issue trackers and determined to keep the world’s code decent and firmly believes that his death will be caused by an overdose of exception handling”.

Usually I write few thoughts about computer security and whatever, other times I code for beers, sometimes I tweet.

You can connect with me writing to alessandro@tanasi.it, an encrypted email is really appreciated, my GPG key fingerprint is:
