My name is HD Moore, I live and work in Austin, Texas. My career has been focused on offensive network security with roles spanning security consulting, product development, and security research. I am the founder of the Metasploit Project and have been actively working on the Metasploit Framework since 2003. For more information, please take a look at my LinkedIn profile.


I post on Twitter about information security, public policy and venture capital. Longer rants are saved for Medium. Occasionally I get a chance to write something longer, some examples of which can be found below.


In the past I have been a frequent speaker at security conferences. The majority of my presentations since 2001 are listed below, some of which can be found online at Speakerdeck. I am taking a break from the conference circuit, but will consider requests local to Austin, Texas.
