I'm Royce Williams. Information security by day, security research as Tech Solvency after hours. I live in Anchorage, Alaska with my family.
I am a public-interest technologist at heart. I believe that the keepers and operators of technology and data should first do no harm (though second-order effects mean trade-offs - for example, a surgeon does some "harm" cutting into a patient, for the patient's own good).
Most of my GitHub work centers around password cracking, including some feature requests, docs, UX, and minor housekeeping work on hashcat. I have been a member of Team Hashcat (hashcat's password-cracking competition group) since 2016. I also collaborate with other teams and groups.
A more thorough bio with links to projects and research is here.
And a special shout-out to my Alaskan security colleague ak_hepcat! Lots of fun stuff in his repos.
