  • What kind of hacker are you?!

    what do you consider your "speciality" as a hacker?
    are you a phreaker? do you live for wireless? are you a KIDDIE that works with other people's SCRIPT?

    i've drifted away from coding and now have very little intrest in software at all. i concentrate on pure hardware exploration. take it apart. put it together. i build custom phone connecters for use in the "field", install technology into hard to reach places (i have plans to install a finger print scanner onto my motorcycle so i don't need any keys), i can even fit an entire wardriving setup into a metal lunch pail (it's all about presentation), and hardware diagnosis and repair for everything from computers to crystal CBs. i can solder like a mad man. basicaly i'm a walking tool box. i can build it, identify it, fix it, or take it appart. i figured that in a world full of netwerk explorers and password crackers, i'll specialize in something that is less common and always needed on any good team.

    and i'm a well qualified social engineer. i excell at lying. i'm just believable. another major plus on any team.

    this doesn't mean i don't know any thing else, it just means this is what i love doing.

    any good group needs 3 guys/gals;
    a hardware guy and social engineer
    a wireless and networking guy
    and a die hard coder.

    don't know if this thread will die, but i'm interested in what people think their strong points are.

    I'm split between hardware/social and network/wireless. So just for the sake of this thread I'll say I'm a network/wireless guy. I had a home network back before it was cool. I play with different Os's just to judge compatibility with my network. I have wireless that I both have for convenience and for *extracurricular activities*, and I've bothered to secure it rather well (Granted nothing is foolproof). Even with wireless in the house I still have more cat5 than I have square feet.

      I would have to say I'm another hardware/social - wireless type. Been working with wireless since before 802.11 was accepted as a standard, but I also love getting into the guts of hardware (built from pieces my s/o's dual boot XP/Mandrake monster), and handle people well. But if you need to count me somewhere, count me wireless.

              also, i don't think that specializing is the same as limiting. everyone has a favorite aspect. and just like school, your favorite subject tends to be the one you're best at.

                specialty

                networking hardware, cisco ios11.1+, not too good with wireless "penetration testing" but learning, moderate but not all that good in c++ and shell scripting, mind-altering hallucinogenic substances, good human manipulation skills, very good soho and enterprise network managment, design, and "auditing" skills, oh and i forgot how to spell. =] gee lemme think of a cheap ass generic label "new school" or "sorta-ereet" not that those two labels have anything to with each other=]
                ARRR!

                  I know a little about a lot of things(i386 and related- a few os's some server software, etc..). I've never really had a chance to play with interesting hardware or routers or anything, but I would like to. I've never done any sort of penetration on my stuff or anything like that, but I try to learn a lot so I can some day be a good syadmin/coder/whatever.

                    I've seen a decent fingerprint scanner on thinkgeek.com the only problem is that if somone lifts the fingrprint and uses that to start the motorcycle. I'm more of a software person but know a bit about hardware.

                            Why are you posting this in this thread? A software person that STILL has not figured out how to post in the correct thread, or how to reply in a thread, instead of starting a new thread... amusing....

                              Completely off topic:

                              i can even fit an entire wardriving setup into a metal lunch pail (it's all about presentation),
                              I can fit my entire wardriving setup in my front pocket. :)


                              Kinda on topic:

                              I'm a network admin. Screw what the other thread says, but I consider myself damned good for what I do. I maintain 1800 workstations, 40+ servers, and an OC3 for an internet connection...


                              Completely on topic:

                              I'm pretty versed in all aspects of security. I know TCP/IP, write a little code, secure our WLANs, and will have a degree in Electronics/Chemistry in May. :) I'm forced to know IOS, Windows, Linux, Solaris and IRIX. Not just know them, but be able to troubleshoot and repair them when they die... :)
