My name is Chris Humphries. Some of my hacker friends call me “sog.” This is my personal website, where I blog about hacking and security research work.
I work as a penetration tester. Previously I worked as a Linux/BSD sysadmin, AWS architect/admin, DBA, and polyglot programmer.
I’ve had a GNU/Linux or BSD (OpenBSD, NetBSD, or FreeBSD) as my main workstation since about 1995. As of 2020, I switched to macOS with a MacBook Pro laptop. However, my servers are still GNU/Linux and OpenBSD.
What’s Going On
In my free time, I work on getting better at hacking things, being a better pentester, and dream of being a good reverse engineer, malware author (research only), and NetBSD/OpenBSD kernel programmer. I’ll get there!
For 2021, I’m working on my professional goals for the year, which are basically Windows network hacking and C2 programming.

What I Like
This website is running WordPress on a GNU/Linux server in a Vultr VPS. The WordPress theme is custom and written by me. The font is “New Hero,” and I use Adobe Fonts web projects to deliver it to this site. I am a fan of Swiss Style graphic design, and this website is me trying to express that (the fonts, font sizes, minimal colors, and whitespace is purposeful). I used the coolors.co to finalize the color palette, and I only use those colors on this site. I use Cloudflare for DNS and website protection and availability.
