Hey! I'm David, the author of the Real-World Cryptography book. I'm a crypto engineer at O(1) Labs on the Mina cryptocurrency, previously I was the security lead for Diem (formerly Libra) at Novi (Facebook), and a security consultant for the Cryptography Services of NCC Group. This is my blog about cryptography and security and other related topics that I find interesting.

# Hack of the Day: How do I run untrusted shell code? posted October 2014

I've run into a nice series of video called "hack of the day" from Vivek-Ramachandran.

In this first video he explains two techniques :

• jump-call-pop
• xor decoding

I also got nice tips like the examining string function in gdb : x/s \$ebx or the folder usr/include/asm that contains plenty of information about assembly.

The full playlist can be found on securitytube.net
