Hi, welcome to this website.
I am Ovi and I am an independent security researcher. On this site, you will find my writings and research regarding hacking, security research and human rights. I mostly cover advanced persistent threats, hostile governments, surveillance, privacy violations & corporate greed.
My work centralizes around exposing corporate injustices, attacks to citizens by hostile governments and decentralization. I stand by the values of the cypherpunk’s manifesto in creating anonymous transaction systems and protecting our right to privacy. I am curious and passionate about exploring human rights, privacy, open society, open-source, open-protocol and commons.
I believe that hacking has the power to change the digital landscape for the people; true hackers, those who are driven by the pursuit of justice, freedom and human rights - have the power to expose the vulnerabilities of oppressive systems and ignite a revolution of change.
I am entirely independent, and I do not work for corporations. My work is either exclusively created by me for the betterment of society, or in collaboration with non-profit human/digital rights groups.
Since my work is independent, I have created a way to engage with readers of this site actively. By signing up, it allows me to engage with fellow researchers, readers and people who share my values directly. You'll get access to the full archive of everything that's been published before and everything that's still to come. Aiming to be a private library of research and content I produce. You can also stay up to date with new research and content sent straight to your inbox. In the future, I hope to also create a community of subscribers who share the same interests.
_My journey is fueled by a deep passion for hacking, security research, and the defense of human rights. My purpose revolves around countering Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs), challenging oppressive governments, battling surveillance, addressing privacy infringements, and standing up against corporate abuse. I started hacking when I was 14 and since then have spent more than ten years immersing myself in programming, hacking, and reverse engineering. In previous lives, I worked with governmental agencies and tech giants. Despite my distaste for them now, I have gained invaluable insights into the dark underbelly of government & big tech.
Over the years, I grew tired of these systems. I had a deep longing for meaningful change. I grew increasingly disheartened witnessing the relentless cycles of harm perpetuated by corporations and belligerent governments. This made me move to becoming an independent researcher, and to only work with non-profit groups. Today, my commitment revolves around advocating for the fundamental rights of humanity in the realms of digital security and privacy.
Within the non-profit sphere, I aim to provide better defense to civil society and non-governmental organizations (NGOs). My research delves into the analysis of attacks, surveillance tactics, and privacy transgressions that bear down upon human rights. Additionally, I scrutinize security vulnerabilities inherent in the software and hardware creations of profit-driven corporations and unethical governments.
By engaging with me through this platform, you have the opportunity to align yourself with digital equity and become a part of the collective endeavor to safeguard human rights within the digital world.
