Code

Gotta keep those 1337 skillz sharp! For as long as there is code, it needs to be secured--these projects provide a litany of capabilities meant to do exactly that 

delivered products

  • _spartan: is a node application which provides nodejs developers with intra-application security through custom policies which generates tailored& configured boilerplate code.

  • probe killer: this android app allows users to detect malicious access points and takes proactive steps to prevent their devices from connecting to them.

ongoing development

_phalanx is a node application to provide inter-application peer-to-peer security policy (built in _spartan) enforcement, ensuring all other _spartans are 'good citizens' in a larger platform framework.
