I believe that we're eternal noobs aka perpetual learners, consistently acquiring new insights from our daily encounters and the esteemed members of the security community. I adhere to the traditional hacker philosophy of acquiring knowledge and passing it on to others. The primary objective of the Tactical Adversary project is to amass knowledge concerning diverse cyber security, red teaming and adversarial attack simulation tactics, presenting them uniquely. This platform serves as a space for me to share my personal reflections, thoughts and experiences. The Tactical Adversary project strives to curate and generate resources related to offensive security, red teaming, adversary attack simulation, survival, technology, philosophy, tradecraft, and the tactics, techniques, procedures employed by adversaries.
