My name is Martin McKeay, and I started blogging about security in August of 2003. I was in a job where I had plenty of free time and SSH access to my home servers. I took up blogging as a means to extend my knowledge and test my ideas about security by putting them up for peer review. Eight years later and I’m still at it, so I must be doing something right. I write to learn; the act of putting words to the blog helps crystallize my thinking and discovers the weak points in my ideas and philosophies. Letting others beat on those ideas either strengthens them or destroys the ones that had no merit to start with.
I live in Northern California with a lovely wife and two intelligent, if challenging, young boys. I work for Akamai as a Security Evangelist, helping to answer security questions for clients and talking about security in the wider world. I have a fairly regular podcast co-hosted by none other than Rich Mogull, Mr. Securosis himself and Zach Lanier from N0Where.org . The opinions stated in this blog are my own and in no way reflect the views and opinions of my employer.
I can usually be reached via cell at 707.495.7926, or you can send me an email at martin at mckeay dot net. I’m always willing to be interviewed or asked for comment on stories, the best way to reach me for an interview is via email.
