Who am I ?

Hugo, 24y-o, DevOps in the SOC team @OVH.

I love to build applications that have a relatively complex interaction with the Linux system (containers / VMs / managing users...).

This page is an online CV where I can present my experiences and the projects I am proud of. If you prefer an offline version, here it is.

If you want to talk (for any reason), please contact me. I do not bite (too much)


Django, Flask, and a LOT of scripting.
Python is the language I use every day whenever I have something to automate.
Some experiences in both Java and Android. At HubSpot all the work was done in Java
Really useful, I've used it to isolate services when hosting a CTF, the deployment of a dockerised application is really easy.
As good a reverse proxy as a cache engine. Really powerful and lightweight software.
A new way of thinking for me, but I have a lot of projects at TCD that use Haskell, so I'm learning!
I reviewed a LOT of PERL code during my security internship at OVH, so I don't really have a big experience in writing PERL code but I have quite a nice one in exploiting it.
Just the basis, I can read a program using documentation.
I love web security. RCE / SQLi / XSS / SSRF / race conditions etc...
I do a lot of CTFs (Capture The Flag) and challenges online (root-me.org for example.).
Also my two previous internship were in pentesting.
Sooo fast, but such a pain to handle idempotency because of the at least one semantics.
Oracle / MySQL / PostgreSQL / SQLite. I use SQL regularly and I learnt some tricks while playing CTFs. However I never used it on a big database (<1Go).
I did a lot of school project in C or C++.
Symphony, Wordpress and scripting. It's a nice language to learn web security.troll troll troll
Only in class. A2 level.
Really vague isn't it ? I love Linux, especially Debian based distributions. That's the OS I use every day. I created CTFs based on this OS (an example here: Pedagogic CTF).
With Github/Stash...
Really nice language, it is quite new for me but I work with it whenever I can.Congratulations Google!
Some tools/techniques I use a lot: nmap, DNS subdomain bruteforce, Recognition based on dnsrecon, Common Sense
I used them a lot to retrieve application secrets or variables.
Only in class. A2 level.

Note: Evaluate its own skills is quite a complicated exercise. I know I'll never totally master a domain so I prefer to rank my skills between them, in a subjective way, rather than in percentage of mastery.
